Personal Care Truth: Information Based on Scientific Facts
"We have been researching cosmetic ingredients for decades for our own natural personal care companies, and
collaborating on this massive project for many months to bring YOU information based on scientific fact. Personal Care
Truth is not about scare tactics, generalizations, fear mongering, or hopping aboard whatís considered trendy at the
moment. Personal Care Truth is about education, facts, questions, research, sharing knowledge, and empowering
consumers to make the choice thatís right for their families. We welcome your questions and submissions; letís combine our
resources and share scientific based information on personal care products with the world. We believe it is more powerful
to provide information to educate and empower YOU as opposed to scaring you with information that has not been backed
by science."
