lab-512503_1920.jpg

First of all, what is a phthalate? Simply, phthalates are a family of chemicals generally added to plastics during manufacture to make them more elastic. If you're interested in the details, Wikipedia has more info.

Where they are found?

  • Air fresheners
  • Dish soap
  • Any cleaning product with "fragrance" on the label has a high possibility of containing phthalates.

Risks

How to help

  • Avoid plug-in room fragrances and aerosol fragrance sprays
  • Avoid soaps and cleaning products with “fragrance” on the label
  • Use only essential oils or scent free natural cleaning products

None of Gyre and Gymble's products contain phthalates.
