As parents, we want to make sure every product our children make contact with isn’t detrimental to their health and growth. That’s why we do not tolerate chemicals that are identified as endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). It sounds scary enough to avoid, but what does endocrine disrupting mean? EDCs disrupt hormone signaling, which is in control of principal processes such as development and growth. From cancer to diabetes, the problems relating to endocrine disruption are severe. Below is a list of the top 32 EDCs you won’t find in any products with our Healthy Family Seal.
