Ingredients, Product Labels & Consumers – What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
For a variety of reasons, the product labels that delineate the ingredients and materials that comprise absorbent hygiene products have been a focus of recent federal and state legislative and regulatory scrutiny. Primarily, this work has been advanced to provide consumers with meaningful information on ingredients in menstrual products. This session will explore the efficacy of that work to date and provide an overview of BAHP’s efforts to balance the divergent demands of policy makers and consumer-focused advocacy groups with the interests of consumers looking for clarity and not confusion.
