Ok, so I am a fan of Burt’s Bees products (even though they were bought by Clorox and I am so not a fan of anything related to chlorine bleach!), and I just found this handy guide courtesy of our friends at that brand:
Burt’s Bees Guide to Reading Your Labels: Synthetic Ingredients We Always Avoid:
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Sodium Laureth Sulfate
Sodium Myreth Sulfate
Parabens (all of them)
I’ll go into more detail on what these chemicals are and why they are bad for you in a future post, but in the mean time please take a copy of the above list with you when you shop for common personal care products.
