Q: Does Love Home and Planet contain phthalates?
A: We do not use phthalates in the making of our products. Phthalates are a family of chemicals that increase the flexibility and durability of plastics. They are commonly used in packaging materials, flooring, cables, luggage, sports equipment and medical devices. In line with our own standards of avoiding phthalates, we do not use Diethyl phthalate (DEP), which is a solvent used to mix fragrance ingredients. Instead, we use other approaches to bring together fragrance ingredients. We always ensure that any phthalates we use in packaging are below the levels assessed as safe by regulatory authorities.
