The Toxic Twenty
At BLK + GRN, we never bring in junk—only joy.
If it’s not sustainably made, plant based, or cruelty free, we don’t put it in our homes, on our melanin or otherwise allow it to clog our self care.
There are currently over 1,500 harmful chemicals banned—or highly restricted—by the European Union (EU). Yet, in the U.S., the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has only banned 11 toxins in our personal care products and cosmetics. We’ve compiled a list of the most harmful offenders backed up by most leading regulating agencies and the Environmental Working Group.
As part of our commitment to help you achieve a holistic lifestyle, we thoughtfully select the most nourishing, cruelty-free products from Black artisans around the world.
