The Healthy Home Company is committed to fulfilling our mission of making the home a healthier place by ridding homes of the products and chemicals that are harming families. That’s why we’re kicking off the New Year with the Toxic Truth™ Campaign, a collection of interactive tools and challenges, research, and information about toxic chemicals designed to help people decipher the dangers found in the products they use every day.
Take The Toxic Test™
As a nation, we believe that personal care, skin care, household, cosmetic and other industries have regulations that are responsible for providing us with products that are “safe.” But, the reality is that there are more than 80,000 chemicals in use in the U.S., and many are unregulated. As an example, the cosmetics industry alone (which is self-regulated) uses over 1,000 chemicals in cosmetics sold in the U.S. that are banned in Europe.
There are toxic chemicals hiding in the products you use every day on yourself and your children.
DID YOU KNOW…
- It only takes 26 seconds for the chemicals from the products you use in your home to enter the bloodstream through your skin.
- There over 80,000 chemicals in use in the US alone, thousands of which are banned overseas.
Our children are at risk. Babies are born with 200 chemicals coursing through their veins.
- Studies have found more than 287 chemicals linked to issues like birth defects, developmental delays, toxicity and even cancer.
- Manufacturers of the cleaning products and laundry detergents you use every day to clean your home (unlike food, beverage, cosmetic and other personal care products) are not required by federal law to list their ingredients.
At TaketheToxicTest.com/502710, we’ve taken the guesswork out of exposing these chemicals, by providing you with an overview of the top Toxic Ten product categories found in the home (including toothpaste, soap and sanitizer, and kitchen cleaner) and outlining some of the dangerous chemicals they harbor.
Many household brands contain ingredients that can cause an array of health risks. TakeTheToxicTest.com/502710 provides information about some of the health concerns and effects associated with those ingredients, and where to find safer replacements.
Join Healthy Home in our mission to make your home a healthier place by logging on to www.TakeTheToxicTest.com/502710, taking the Toxic Test™ and investigating the products in your home. When you’ve finished, we hope you’ll consider purchasing safer alternatives for your family and encouraging your family, friends and loved ones to do the same.
