Here's something you're probably not thinking about when you're brushing your teeth, changing the little one's diaper, and putting on deodorant in the morning: before you even make it to the breakfast table, you've probably used almost 15 personal care products with over 100 toxic ingredients. The chemicals in your face cream, your diaper cream, your shampoo, and your lipstick have been linked to cancer, birth defects, infertility, and a long list of health concerns.
We think Canadians have enough to worry about in the morning, so we've put together tips and guides to keep you informed and safe from toxic substances in our personal care products.
We're also working with industry and governments to find safer alternatives to the harmful chemicals that many Canadian products currently contain.
Find out more about how these substances affect you, and where to find safer alternatives.
It's time that Canadian cosmetics got a makeover. For you, for all of us. Now.
