Dropwise Essentials is very proud to announce that we have been named a “Champion” in the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics’ Market Shift report, released November 30th. The report describes how certain companies, from small mom-and-pops to large companies in the natural products sector, are setting a new high-bar standard for personal care products. From the start, our core focus has been on creating safe, gentle and effective plant-based personal care productions, so its exciting and a real honor to be lauded with this particular recognition!
The Market Shift report documents how the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a national coalition of nonprofit women’s, environmental, health, consumer and worker safety organizations, worked with cosmetics industry leaders between 2004 and 2011 in order to increase attention to product safety while growing demand for safer personal care products. Luckily, consumer demand for safer products free from harmful chemicals has made natural personal care the fastest growing sector of the cosmetics market, even during this economic downturn!
Being named a “Champion” by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics means we met the goals of their strict Compact for Safe Cosmetics, voluntary pledge to avoid chemicals banned in other countries, avoid harmful ingredients whenever possible and fully disclose product ingredients –all things we were already doing before signing their pledge.
We are proud to be among the leaders in the personal care industry of what will hopefully be a continuing trend toward making products that are truly safe for personal consumption and for environmental stewardship, Everyday in every way we are demonstrating that it is possible to make luscious, effective personal care products without using any toxic or questionable ingredients at all.
According to the report, the average American woman uses 12 personal care products a day and is exposed to more than 120 chemicals –many of which are linked to cancer, birth defects, asthma, allergies and other health problems. It’s no coincidence that many of these dangerous chemicals contaminate our water and wildlife as well, affecting our children’s future wellbeing in a number of adverse ways.
You know that old adage from the 1960s “If you’re not part of the solution then you’re part of the problem”? Well we pride ourselves on being part of the solution and helping others be a part of it too!
