Earlier this year, the David Suzuki Foundation invited Canadians to pull back the shower curtain and participate in an online survey about toxic ingredients in common personal care products like soaps, shampoos and cosmetics. This report summarizes key findings from the survey and presents recommendations for cleaning up these products and strengthening Canada’s laws to better protect human health and the environment.
