How to Choose Human and Environmentally-Friendly Period Solutions
Period Panties | Menstrual Cups | Tampons | Pads + Panty Liners | Reusable Pads + Panty Liners | Recommendations

She handed over a pad essentially the size of a diaper. Oh, how times have changed!

As part of our #ChemicalCallout series to expose some of the worst toxic offenders, we’re regularly highlighting a chemical from our MADE SAFE Hazard List on social media. Each month we’re profiling one chemical on our blog so you can learn more about it and how to avoid it with MADE SAFE certified alternatives.
What Is It?
Vitamin A is naturally found in many animal foods like butter and cheese. It’s an essential nutrient, which means our body needs a healthy dose without overdoing it, like many vitamins. (more…)
