Environmental health organization, Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE), has released a new fact sheet that raises concerns about the use of nanosilver in menstrual products like period underwear and pads, calling particular attention to the antibacterial agent’s impact on important bacteria necessary for maintaining vaginal and vulva health. Not all period underwear or menstrual pads are made with nanosilver, but unfortunately companies who make these products are not required to disclose their ingredients.

California Right-to-Know Bill Seeks to End Toxic Secrets in Beauty and Personal Care Products

Fragrances and flavors are found in thousands of beauty and personal care products, yet there is no state or federal regulatory oversight of the safety of these ingredients.

Introduced by Assembly Member Ash Kalra (D-San Jose), AB 2775 is the first such law to take effect in the nation.
