Big Business Cuts Chemicals

 There are some benefits to being Wal-Mart…Like what you may ask?

Like the ability to contact your suppliers and say they have to phase out about 10 hazardous chemicals from personal care products, cosmetics and cleaning products sold in its stores. Starting in January they are also going to require that they disclose chemicals in those products as well.

This comes on the heals of Procter & Gamble Co. announcing  it will “eliminate phthalates and triclosan from its beauty products by 2014. In 2012, Johnson & Johnson pledged to eliminate phthalates, triclosan, formaldehydes and parabens from all its personal care products globally.”

I’ve had a few thoughts about that announcement it came not long after they announced they would be listing all ingredients on their labels…and that made me wonder why would that take so long? Why wait till 2014 to print new labels, well this ^^ answers that question. There are ingredients in their ingredients they don’t want to have in print.

So while I think this is a step in the right direction, I think I’ll stick to my Melaluca products.
