Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and that means (let’s just say it) some of us are prepping to get lucky. So what better time to talk about what’s in sexual health products like lube and condoms, and feminine products like wipes and washes?
These are products that rarely get talked about, for obvious reasons. But we have to discuss what’s in them, because some of the common ingredients are harmful chemicals that come into contact with some of the most sensitive skin on our bodies—and in the case of women, some of the most absorptive.

We had the pleasure of sitting down with the founder and CEO of Good Clean Love, Wendy Strgar.

We live in a world of unprecedented toxic exposure. A world where babies are born pre-polluted, exposed to cocktail of harmful chemicals in utero. A world where diseases linked to toxic chemicals like cancer, auto-immune disorders, early-onset puberty, infertility, Alzheimers, ADHD, diabetes, and obesity are on the rise. (more…)
This holiday season, I’m thrilled to give you this guide of healthier options to make your shopping easier. No one wants to accidentally give a toxic gift, but it can be confusing to figure out what’s safe and what’s not.
I developed the MADE SAFE™ seal because I believe it shouldn’t be so hard to find things that are made with safe ingredients. While only the gift recommendations in bold are MADE SAFE certified, I generally like the direction all of these companies are taking and trust that they are making better products than many on the market.
