 How the toxins in cleaning products impact your health:

1 in 3 woman and 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their life!

Chemicals found in household cleaners like phthalates, parabens, triclosan and MANY others are carcinogens! Carcinogens function as endocrine disruptors, act as neurotoxins and/or allergens and lead to learning and/or developmental issues.

Over the past 30 years, research has revealed that exposure to toxic chemicals we encounter daily may play a role in the increase in serious health problems.
