This Letter from the Editor is part of our Unclean 15 campaign—a doctor-vetted list of potentially toxic, unsafe ingredients to avoid during pregnancy, while breastfeeding, and when you’re trying to conceive. A new standard for what you put in (and on) your body.
As my 92-year-old grandmother-in-law likes to say: “If you don’t take care of your body, where else are you going to live?” One of my favorites on her long list of infamous quotes. A sentiment that couldn’t be more true and the fundamental reason so many of us move our bodies, get good sleep, and take our vitamins everyday. And, a concept that takes on new meaning when we find ourselves pregnant, TTC, and growing our families.
“If you don’t take care of your body, where else are you going to live?”
At Perelel, we’re on a mission to make it easier for you to make informed, empowered decisions when it comes to your health. Introducing the Unclean 15, a list of potentially toxic, unsafe ingredients to avoid during pregnancy, while breastfeeding, and when you’re trying to conceive. We hope that the Unclean 15 will not only save you countless hours on Google researching ingredients, but also give you peace of mind when you find a beloved product that’s clean and safe.
In honor of the campaign, we’ve curated expert tips, a beautiful seasonal produce guide for late summer by our friend Lyke Minded, and a must-try summer recipe from chef Gaby Dalkin of What’s Gaby Cooking.
We hope you enjoy, learn something new, and check your products using our Unclean 15 Label Check tool.
