Description: Apparently, they actually tested fifty different kinds of products for chemicals. And the majority of the products marketed for having safer ingrethents contained chemicals of concern, including hormone disrupters and those associated with asthma. The highest levels were in vinyl products, such as shower curtains and pillow protectors, and fragranced products, such as dryer sheets and sunscreens. Of the alternative sunscreens, the product with the highest number of target chemicals was one marketed for babies and children!The organization says that, despite limited product labeling, consumers can take some steps to reduce their exposures. They recommend using fewer products; exercising caution with products applied directly to the skin and products used indoors, where chemicals accumulate in the air and dust; avoiding vinyl products, products containing fragrances, and anti-bacterials (triclosan and triclocarban); using soap and water for cleaning; and getting involved in local and national efforts to modernize chemical safety testing to keep harmful chemicals out of products in the first place.
