โ—๏ธIt should be illegal to use these preservatives in conjunction with those marketing terms
โ—๏ธIt should come with a warning label,

But itโ€™s not and itโ€™s doesnโ€™t…
Just a prime example of why creating EMPOWERED label readers is so important to me.

๐Ÿ“Œ ๐“๐ข๐ฉ:
Preservatives are very necessary but most often the most toxic and concerning ingredients on a label. Youโ€™ll usually find them towards the bottom of the label and youโ€™ll want to put the products right back on the shelf if it contains:

โœ–๏ธphenoxyethanol

โœ–๏ธmethylisothiazolinone

โœ–๏ธbenzathiazolinone

โœ–๏ธanything ending in -paraben

You deserve honest and transparent marketing.
You deserve to live well, mama!
