Take a toxic tour of your bathroom cabinet

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Going Green, Decor

Over the past year, I've been diligently educating myself about what goes into my son's body. Whether it be organic foods, BPA-free sippy cups or the non-toxic household cleaners we use, I feel relatively (but not overly) confident about the choices we've made.

Personal care items can present an additional danger, and although I've provided safer alternatives to Wito, I've never really thought about what I've been using myself. Skin Deep's Cosmetic Safety Database (created by the researchers at the Environmental Working Group) features brand-by-brand safety rankings and in-depth information on over 14,000 shampoos, lotions, deodorants, sunscreens and other products from almost 1,000 brands.

By using this interactive database, you can find out what's known about the potential health risks from the personal care products you use everyday and learn about safer options. Find out what lurks in your bathroom cabinet here.
