Maybe you’re like me - you love a clean, fresh smelling home. Who doesn't, right? There are a few things you need to know about using "natural" products. Make sure the product is actully natural and safe for you and your family vs. making a claim on a bottle. We have researched natural cleaning and found the BEST there is, Better Life cleaning products, only at Nest.
There are synthetic fragrances in Method, Mrs. Meyers, Green Works, and many more personal care and cleaning products. However, you will never find synthetic fragrances in Better Life products. It goes against our mission of our products being truly safe and plant-derived. Better Life uses only natural essential oils and extracts to scent our products to offer a subtle scent that is a delightful while scrubbing toilets, tables, floors, or your hands.

The bottom line: Congress has banned some phthalates in toys, but as the recent study above suggests, others have been substituted in their place. Many countries have banned phthalates (EU, Canada, South Korea, Japan, even China). But the U.S. government demands such a high level of proof of harm that many agree it is simply impossible to reach—and our government is slow to respond, banning only a few chemicals in its history.
“Fragrance” is at the top of my “no-no” list. If a manufacturer isn’t willing to list ALL of a product’s ingredients on its label, that’s a deal breaker for me. I hope it is for you, too.
