VICTORY! Summer's Eve has removed 10 toxic ingredients from their products. Unfortunately, underlying concerns with intimate care products continue to put our health at risk.
Today, over 25 scientists, researchers and academics released an open letter urging New York-based consumer product goods manufacturer Prestige Consumer Healthcare, makers of Summer’s Eve, to eliminate toxic chemicals and disclose all ingredients in their iconic personal care brand. Circulated by national health non-profit, Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE), the letter calls into question the ingredients found in Summer’s Eve products, including wipes, washes, powders, douches and sprays.
Join the growing coalition of environmental, health, justice organizations -- and researchers, scientists and healthcare providers -- to tell Summer's Eve toxic and hidden ingredients are not ok!
Scented menstrual products not only increase exposure to harmful chemicals found in fragrance ingredients, they also perpetuate the myth that menstruation and vaginas are dirty.
Nearly 1/2 the ingredients in Summer's Eve "Fragrance-Free" products are actually fragrance ingredients. Just what the heck is going on here and WTFragrance?!
Thanks to your continued demands, Prestige Brands (makers of Summer’s Eve) has taken three harmful colorants out of vaginal washes.
In response to public demands, Prestige Brands has removed harmful colorants from their Summer’s Eve vaginal washes. This move follows national environmental health non-profit, Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE)’s, public campaign highlighting concerns that colorants found in many vaginal washes come in contact with vaginal mucous membranes – violating the FDA’s use restrictions, and may adversely affect the health of people using these products.
We look forward to bringing you more news-you-can-use about fragrance chemicals, safer salons, ingredient disclosure, non-toxic cleaning and period products in the New Year. It’s going to be a busy 2019 — and we’re so excited to have you with us!
New data compiled by environmental health non-profit, Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE), reveals that a third of all fragrance chemicals currently in use are either known to be toxic, or considered potentially toxic by scientists around the world. This data fully compliments a report released today by Breast Cancer Prevention Partners (BCPP), which tested household products and clearly revealed the presence of harmful fragrance chemicals linked to cancer, hormone disruption, reproductive harm, and respiratory toxicity that do not appear on the label.
With a busy summer already over, we wanted to take some time to uplift and share some inspiring updates about our campaigns for safe period and personal care products.
