Do Live Clean® products contain phthalates? Why should I avoid phthalates?

January 8, 2021

No, Live Clean® products do not contain phthalates. These are synthetic fragrance compounds that are used to make the scent last longer in personal care products or to dissolve other chemicals, or even in some cases (like nail polish) to provide a hardened plastic coating. There are some studies that suggest that phthalates are not safe. Live Clean® requests all fragrance submissions eliminate use of phthalates for any of these reasons.
