August is fast-approaching, which means you might be prepping for your kids to head back to school. You’ve likely been given a long list of school supplies to buy. Unfortunately, many common back-to-school items can contain toxic ingredients.
Personal care products and cosmetics are a common holiday gift, but ones that are truly safe and effective can be difficult to find. And all of us at Made Safe know that the holiday season means busy, busy, busy—no time to research ingredients and investigate products. This is why our team does the heavy lifting for you.
