What are phthalates and how are they used in the fourApril product line? Discover more about this ingredient and the details surrounding it’s origins below.
Phthalates are known endocrine disruptors that can negatively impact hormones & the reproductive system. Phthalates make plastics more flexible and less likely to break. Phthalates are also present in almost all fragranced items because they help fragrances last longer.
You won’t discover phthalates on a label because businesses are not required to list the ingredients in their smells due to proprietary regulations. However, several everyday products contain phthalates like: cleaners, nail polish, dish soap, detergents, plastics, solvents, air fresheners, adhesives & more. There is a strong possibility that phthalates are included in a product if the word “fragrance” appears on the label.
Stay away from scented or fragranced goods and keep in mind many “unscented” products really include concealing fragrances. Avoid ingredients with acronyms like (DEHP), (DBP), (BBP), (DINP), (DiDP), and (DnOP). Select products with “phthalate-free” labeling.
We do not use phthalates in any of our products! fourApril created non-toxic, hypoallergenic cleaners so that you can protect yourself and your loved ones. The fourApril cleaners are created with Natural ingredients that are food grade or better.
