Multiple carcinogens in Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Shampoo

Green (Living) Review

Dioxane is also found in Ecover products and when challenged, the supposedly eco-comscious company, Ecover, refused to discuss it and stated that (1) that “the stuff is perfectly safe” and (2) that they had no intention of making any changes. I found it very disturbing that a company claiming to be green and claiming to produce eco-products such as Ecover flatly refused to even countenance the removal of dioxane from its products.

Green (Living) Review

Whether it is PET made from plants, as in Coca Cola's attempt even though the so-called plant bottle is only 30% plat-based plastic with the remainder being recycled and, predominately, virgin plastic, or Ecover with its bottles which are, basically, a polyehtylene made from sugar cane waste. by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Is the idea of sustainable packaging a possibility or is it but a myth?

Right now I have Ecover’s hand soap next to my kitchen and bathroom sinks!

Making our own cleansing products after work probably isn’t going to happen for most of us. But you can’t just grab just any old soap off the shelf either.

A few years back I wrote an article about some potentially dangerous chemicals in Ecover products , a company that sells green cleaning products which I still use to this day.
