Breast Cancer UK - New handbag guide to harmful chemicals found in everyday products

We’re all exposed to synthetic and potentially harmful chemicals on a daily basis especially from items such as cosmetics, personal care products and soft furnishings.

But it’s not always easy to know what to avoid, what to look out for and if there are alternative options available. That’s why Breast Cancer UK has re-launched their handbag guide for people to take out with them when they go shopping. This new mini guide aims to help consumers identify what to look out for and what to avoid.
