Whether it’s your face cream or your shower curtain, many of the products we use every day contain potentially harmful ingredients, including endocrine disrupting chemicals that interfere with the body’s hormones.

Health-conscious consumers often pore over product labels trying to avoid certain ingredients, but since companies are not required to disclose all the ingredients, product labels can be incomplete. Through our independent research on chemicals in consumer products, we can uncover what harmful substances are in productsand how we're exposedin order to inform policies and drive the market toward safer products.
