  •   Why #SwitchToSafer? 
  •                        Why should you care? 
  1. 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer in the United States ; currently there are over 80,000 unregulated chemicals being used in our products in the United Sates, many of which are known carcinogens.  There is no law to require a chemical to demonstrate safety – chemicals are treated like our judicial system, innocent until otherwise proven guilty. 
  2. The European Union has spent the past two decades banning or restricting more than 1,400 ingredients and the US has only banned 11 to date. There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market in the US today, 10,000 of which are commonly found in personal care products.  Of those 10,000 only about 10% have safety data or research put into them.
  3. 1 in 88 children will be diagnosed with autism – that number was 1 in 500 in 1999.   Austism is linked to unknown enviornmental influences; coincidentally, along with the rise of austim, over the last half century, chemical use in America has gone up over 2,000%. 
  4. 42 billion pounds of chemicals enter American commerce every day - and you CAN make safer choices for you and your family.  Many of these chemicals are linked to endrocrine disprution, cancer, obesity, diabetes, ADHD, reproductive issues, asthma, allergies and metabolic disorder. 
  5. 1938 is the last time Congress passed a law regulating the cosmetic industry.  Most of the cosmetics and self-care products on the market contain hidden "trade secret" ingredients and known toxic chemicals that are detrimental to our health.  Interestingly enough, it's no wonder that no new laws have been passed in Congress...$56,000,000 was spent lobbying by the chemical industry in just 2012 alone.
