Whole Foods Market – Premium Body Care Unacceptable Ingredients

Whole Foods Market bans 180+ ingredients commonly used in beauty and body products. They believe some things don’t belong in the products you use on your body.

We’ve banned more than 180 typically used ingredients, including parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde donors, oxybenzone, PFAS and EDTA.


Under U.S. law, cosmetic products and ingredients do not need FDA approval before they go on the market. The one exception is color additives (other than coloring materials used in coal-tar hair dyes), which must be approved for their intended use. Companies and individuals who market cosmetics have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of their products. In order to take action for safety reasons against a cosmetic on the market, we need reliable information showing that it is unsafe when consumers use it according to the directions in the labeling or in the customary or expected way.
