An antibacterial and antimicrobial chemical.
The above items make up the Haereticus Environmental Lab (HEL) list of chemicals to avoid.
Testing The Final Product
The chemicals on the HEL LIST, besides having acute and direct toxicity to an animal or plant (meaning it can readily kill them or result in obvious harm) are also poisons called “endocrine disruptors.” Endocrine disruptors don’t kill outright, but are a “slow” and “hard to perceive” poison that can affect humans, other animals and plants!
Many manufacturers don’t want these poisons in their products, but sometimes, they find a way into the product through contamination from the source (e.g., parabens used as preservatives in glycerol, camphors in fragrances). Most manufacturers don’t have the ability to test their source ingredients for every single chemical – it is impossible.
The Protect Land + Sea Certification (PL+S) is different from other certification programs, such as Organic, Fairtrade, etc. These certifications ask the manufacturers to commit to abiding by their criteria of not using certain ingredients. PL+S Certified Products, on the other hand, are independently tested by Haereticus Environmental Laboratory (HEL) to ensure the final product DO NOT CONTAIN anything on the HEL LIST.
Stream2Sea is proud that our SPF30 Sunscreen has been certified with the prestigious Protect Land + Sea Certification with 0% of the chemicals on the HEL List.
No matter how the chemicals on the HEL LIST can get into a product, Stream2Sea's PL+S CERTIFIED products DO NOT CONTAIN any chemical on the HEL LIST.
