As a natural, organic company, we take pride in making sure our products are safe to consumers. It's great to be partnering up with a like-minded Canadian organization for a cause we feel strongly about.
Kitchener, Ontario (PRWEB) January 26, 2012
Cocoon Apothecary, Canada's organic skin care brand, has become one of the first companies to sign the Just Beautiful Pledge, a campaign created by Environmental Defense to promote safe, non-toxic cosmetics in Canada.
The pledge was designed to assist consumers in making informed decisions about the cosmetics and skin care they are buying. It is also a way to promote products that do not contain the Environmental Defense's Toxic Ten, a list of ingredients that are linked to a variety of health issues.
“As a natural, organic company, we take pride in making sure our products are safe to consumers," says Jessica Burman, founder of Cocoon Apothecary "It's great to be partnering up with a like-minded Canadian organization for a cause we feel strongly about."
Many personal care products on the market today – from deodorants and lotion, to make-up and even baby shampoo – contain chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, learning disabilities and other harmful health effects, even though safer alternatives are available. A growing number of consumers are seeking personal care products that do not contain hazardous chemicals, and Cocoon Apothecary is demonstrating that making safer products is not only possible, but is also part of a successful business model.
