Canadian men are using more personal care products than ever before. But what’s actually in them? Some of the chemicals in these products are linked to cancer, birth defects, sperm damage, obesity, asthma and other chronic health problems. And scientists haven’t fully examined how all of these chemicals react with each other and affect our bodies. For these reasons, Environmental Defence has recommendations for consumers, the cosmetics industry, and the federal government to help protect Canadians from toxic chemicals.
