All About Safety
Skin Deep


   By going to www.cosmeticsdatabase.com
you can see exactly what is in your shampoo, soap, sun screen, etc..  This environmental working group has a searchable data base it calls Skin Deep. Type in the name of the product or ingredient you are assessing. On a scale of 0 (being safe) to 10 (being toxic). You will be surprised how many products, even baby shampoo rates horribly high. This is mainly due to the synthetic preservatives* (parabens). Although Moon River products are not currently listed on this site, you can however look up each individual ingredient we use on their data base. 

*Note on preservatives (parabens). The FDA is aware that estrogenic activity in the body is associated with certain forms of breast cancer. Although parabens can act similarly to estrogen, they have been shown to have much less estrogenic activity than the body's natural occurring estrogen. The FDA believes at this time there is no cause for concern about the use of cosmetics containing parabens. However, the agency will continue to evaluate new data in this area.
