Reading your product labels

A sample of our in-store signage

We were intrigued by a recent email from the Environmental Working Group about how to read labels on personal care products. Unfortunately they list out all the big offenders to stay away from (parabens, triclosan, fragrance), but don’t tell you what to actually look for when you’re buying those personal care products.

At Pharmaca, we’ve taken the guesswork out of finding personal care products that are good for you and your family. Sprinkled throughout the store you’ll find signs like this one, where we talk about ingredients we love–and ingredients to stay away from. In most cases, you’ll find it hard to find the ingredients to avoid, since we put such an emphasis on quality and safety within our product selection.

Look for these signs the next time you’re searching for a new personal care product. Then tell us: What ingredients do YOU love?
