Toxic Tub Report

I posted a blog entry on Care2 today on the just-released report from the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, “No More Toxic Tub: Getting Contaminants Out of Children’s Bath and Personal Care Products.” The quick report: they found 1, 4-dioxane and formaldehyde (chemicals the EPA lists as probable carcinogens) in baby and kiddie bath products. Sad but true; happily, you can choose other products and you can take action by contacting your legislators about regulating the industry.

UPDATE: I’m proud to be a Californian today, as our kick-butt Senator Feinstein just introduced the “Ban Poisonous Substances Act of 2009.” Can’t wait for further action…
