We are thrilled to hear that California is making strides to protect its residents from toxic chemicals in consumer products. A scientific advisory committee added bisphenol A (BPA) to the state’s Proposition 65 list of toxic chemicals. An endocrine disruptor that may potentially lead to birth defects and reproductive and developmental disorders, BPA is on our Never List. Though it isn’t common in cosmetics, it is frequently in the linings of canned foods, receipt paper, and reusable plastic water bottles. Studies have shown that even very small amounts of BPA—levels many Americans are exposed to daily—may cause serious harm.
