The problem with feminine wipes

Feminine Wipes:
How a little wipe can do big harm

Despite what marketers are trying to sell you, wipes are not necessary for everyday cleansing for most women. The chemicals they contain may, in fact, have adverse effects on your health.

Women must demand accountability and transparency of product ingredients and challenge the marketing practices that prey upon them for unnecessary items. Read our fact sheet to learn more.

Take Action!

We have a right to know what chemicals we are being exposed to in order to avoid ingredients that may cause allergic reactions or more serious harm. That’s why Congress must pass the Cleaning Product Right to Know Act.

Why a Women's Organization

Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE) defines the environment as the places people live, work and play. It is estimated that between 80,000 and 85,000 chemicals are in use in the environment in the United States, yet only about 200 of these chemicals have been thoroughly tested for safety. Of those chemicals that have been tested, most have been evaluated only for their acute impacts to adult males in industrial settings. The chemical exposure routes and health impacts on women – especially girls, women of color and women of reproductive age – are different and have historically been largely overlooked.
