#ComeClean About What's Really Inside Your Face Lotion

This millennial environmental advocate calls for transparency of ingredients in our everyday products.

As a participant in Seventh Generation’s Come Clean campaign, NationSwell is asking that cleaning and hygiene product companies do the same thing that Seventh Generation has done for the last 27 years: disclose all of a product’s ingredients so consumers can make educated choices about what they bring into their homes.

To do this, we teamed up with activists and environmental advocates, including 24-year-old Erin Schrode. Today, she’s running for Congress in California’s District 2. But her dedication to the public’s wellbeing started more than a decade ago, when, at the age of 13, she co-founded Turning Green, a nonprofit dedicated to environmental advocacy.

Watch the video above to learn what’s at stake when you don’t know what’s actually inside those gels and sprays.
