Target’s Claims About Their “Clean Beauty” Standards Are Vague and Mistaken
We love that Target has decided to support “clean beauty” standards, but we are struggling to figure out what these standards are. Furthermore, we have found some clear examples where they have ignored their own standards whereas there are products with prohibited ingredients inside. Odd, right? We thought so too.
If you go to the Target “clean beauty” page you see this quote explaining some of their standards:
“Look for the Target Clean symbol on beauty products to find those without phthalates, Propylparaben & butylparaben, sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) & other ingredients you may not want.”
