I can’t believe it took me this long to figure out that I need to read and understand labels. I don’t want my family exposed to hidden chemicals, and need to continue to spread awareness of the importance of purchasing products that are free from chemicals, dyes and artificial fragrances. Thanks to seventh generation for providing consumers like me the opportunity to purchase products that are not only safer for my family, but still are tough on stains.
Do you know what’s in your baby wipes? Have you read the labels- what exactly are phthalates, and why do they matter? They are a binding material used to make plastics flexible. But did you know that studies have linked these chemicals to asthma, autism, ADD, cancers, infertility, obesity and diabetes?
This is why it is so critical to understand what we are exposing our children to- we as consumers need to do a better job of interpreting these labels and choosing companies who are committed to ingredient transparency. I am so grateful to Generation Good for educating me on ingredient science and providing me with a free sample of Free & Clear Baby Wipes- check this product information out:
- Free of alcohol, fragrances & dyes
- Free of parabens and phthalates
- Thick, strong and generously-sized
- Use 70% less plastic than their original wipes

I feel so fortunate to have been selected as a @seventhgen Healthy Baby Home Party Host, free as a Generation Good member! #healthybabyhome #generationgood #ad #gotitfree Great products that I am lucky enough to be able to share with family and friends. Products that are plant-based, with no synthetic dyes or fragrances, with labels that are transparent- delivered by a company that stands up for what it believes. Please continue to spread the word and educate your loved ones about the importance of a healthy home on your future health, and the future health of your littles!
Why is label transparency so important? We’ve all read or heard the ads stating, “this product may contain…..”. It shouldn’t be so hard to understand product labels, especially those that may affect our health, and the health of our children. What if a label stated that it could affect your future fertility? Of course, that would make you think twice about finding a better option. Tampons are at the forefront of many of these discussions. The Washington Post recently reported “Chemicals in tampons have a direct access to women’s circulatory system.” Did you know that pesticide residue can be found in non-organic cotton in tampons and pads? This is alarming! Of course we should demand better disclosures in regards to what effect these ingredients may have on our bodies.
Let’s stand up for accurate labeling. According to Generation Good, “No federal law exists which requires disclosure of ingredients in tampons and pads. This means women are left in the dark about what ingredients they are putting on some of the most sensitive and absorptive tissue on their body.” Share this link to help inform your family and friends!
