Phthalate-Free Cosmetics

Phthalates are known to cause a broad range of birth defects and lifelong reproductive problems in laboratory animals exposed to these chemicals during pregnancy and after birth. Phthalates are also known to be hormone-mimicking chemicals, many of which disrupt normal hormonal processes, raising concern about their implications for increased breast cancer risk. The following is a list of companies that have contacted BCA to confirm that they do not use phthalates in their products. Don’t see your company here? Because phthalates are often not disclosed on the product label, it is difficult to tell just by reading the label whether phthalates are present.

To find out about the ingredients in your product:

  1. Find out which company makes the product you use. See if they have an ingredient list available on the product itself or on the company’s web site.
  2. Try e-mailing or calling the company and asking if its products contain phthalates.
