Mrs. Meyers – A Safer Choice?
A FB message from one of my company associates:
“Alright friends, I’ve got to put this out there. 🤭
I can not handle another celeb endorsed ad on my feed referring to Ms. Meyers products on Grove Collaborative as “all natural.” 🤦🏼♀️
Brands like Ms. Meyers use chemicals such as methylisothiazolinone, named allergen of the year a few years back, and linked to all kinds of skin issues. 🤯
I recently saw a study done by the organic consumers association on major store brand cleaners. Want to know which product tested at the highest level for the CARCINOGEN 1,4-dioxane???
Mrs. Meyers Clean Day Liquid Dish Soap had the highest levels of the carcinogen at an alarming 204 ppm (parts per million), ten times higher than any other product. Right up there with Dial and Palmolive‼️
YES, the same Mrs. Meyers you thought was SO safe for your family.
Hey! I did too. “Who cares that it’s more expensive than Palmolive or Dawn, because it’s SAFE”
So what is 1,4-dioxane?
It’s a petrochemical “known to the State of California to cause cancer”. Due to its toxicity, many consumers would not expect to find it in “natural” or “organic” branded products. The contaminant 1,4-dioxane is a byproduct of the ethoxylation process, which is a cheap shortcut companies use to provide mildness to harsh cleaning ingredients. 1,4-dioxane is also a
⚠️suspected kidney toxicant
⚠️AND it’s a significant groundwater contaminant.
But wait! There’s light at the end of this dark, cold, cancer causing, dishonest, never-trust-the-name-brand-bought out by Clorox-mess…..
I found a store that’s never had a lawsuit in 34 years of business, and uses no toxic cancer causing Ingredients. The best part? My everyday cleaning spray is 97 CENTS a bottle. I’ll never stop bragging about them. 💁🏼♀️💁🏼♀️“
