On October 5, Amazon issued its first-ever public safer chemicals policy. The policy includes restrictions on dozens of toxic phthalates, parabens, formaldehyde releasers, nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs), triclosan, and toluene in its private brand baby, household cleaning, personal care, and beauty products in the United States.
