I worry about the skin care options or lack there of for my girls. They love lipstick but it drives me crazy because it goes right in their mouth and I know it can't be good for them. Create a cool lipstick.

It makes sense to me that the smells that come from many body cares are from bad sources.

I feel like you are going to have much more of an impact on influencing companies to change their products then the public can. So I am excited you are making this happen.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is truly incredible! I am impressed with how many people have signed their pledge. Thanks for sharing them with us.

It starts with diaper cream, then kids "make up", I just worry about the things going on my kids skin, and try to limit it but they want to have fun so my interventions only go so far. I really hope for all parents kids standards for body care products drive a better market place.

Glad to know you have created this standard, and I am a bit surprised that for years there wasn't one. I see that many products you carry don't meet this standard, interesting.... why?

I just came across this series, good work. I know my wife talks a lot about this subject and I agree, the value of natural bodycare products is vital for health.

Thanks for taking the lead on this and partnering up with Sage Cosmetic's, they seem like a great organization.

We've always had our basic standards and continue to offer products at this level to offer our customers more value-driven options. The introduction of the Premium Body Care standards was a move in raising the bar. For more information on these standards, check out: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/products/premium-body-care.php

Thanks for making a stand here! It blows my mind that seemingly any brand can claim to be "Natural" and the amount of useless crap they put in products is silly.

I came across this series through Green Girl, and I have also seen a buzz about the topic over the last 2 weeks. I am proud to know that a store I support supports good work like this. Keep it up and thank you.

I guess you have to find this on the product labels. I went in the store recently and didn't noticed any way to tell which products meet the standard. I remember some time ago there use to be paper tabs on the shelves noting which products met the standard, that would be very helpful.

I to am looking for more body care products for my kids. Sunscreen is soooo expensive at your store, but is needed all summer long here. Please help create or bring a lower cost solution to your stores.

I noticed this poster in your store about the campaign. Thanks for taking it up, it is nice to know I can worry less about reading labels when I am on your stores.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is doing such good work. I am thrilled to see you two are working together.

Scary to read about hormones affecting teenage girls. It makes sense that what you put on your skin will get inside your blood stream.

I have always wondered how/why the USDA could allow people to stamp organic or natural on labels when the products contain chemicals which are far from natural.

Good info. I would like to see a list of products/brands that don't make the cut.
