Are You Using Mrs. Meyer’s Products? Re-think these 3

If you have been using Mrs. Meyer’s products, it’s probably because you are concerned with using toxic chemicals in your home. Mrs. Meyer’s products are usually placed with other “safer” brands deemed non-toxic at department stores and grocery aisles.  But, did you know that a few of Mrs. Meyers products contain ingredients that pose safety concerns? If you’ve been using Meyer’s products don’t worry, not all their products raise health concerns. However, I did find information regarding the products below. These products contain ingredients that the Good Guide labels as “Bad Actors.”

The Good Guide analyzes personal care and household chemical products and comes up with health ratings.  These ratings are determined by the number of ingredients that have health or regulatory concerns. A 0-10 rating scale is used with 0 being the worst and 10 being the best ingredient health rating.
