for being a pioneer in making the public more aware of the 'crap' BIG business puts into the products they sell US! Please read the labels, and stay informed. Just because it's available, does not mean that it is safe. Here's another example that I just came across - Triclosan! Have you heard of this agent yet? Triclosan is found in personal hygiene products, toothpaste, cosmetics, deodorant, and shows up under other names in counter tops, kitchenware, clothing and plastic toys. Don't rely on the EPA or the FDA or manufacturers to make the best decisions for you. It's YOUR health. There are wonderful alternatives out there - with antibacterial and antiseptic properties that include tea tree, patchouli, neem, cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamon. Stay healthy from the inside out and check out this video on how to make natural soaps at home.
