Cosmetics and personal hygiene products are not regulated by the FDA. Most contain ingredients known to be toxic. The whole family will benefit from using non-toxic products, but our kids with autism may be particularly sensitive to the toxins, as well as to harsh fragrances and additives. With lots of parent input, we selected products that are non-toxic, GF/CF, and that meet the particular needs of our community - from easy-to- pump soap dispensers to toothpaste that helps prevent cavities and is safe to swallow. The Autism Community Store is committed to bringing you even more products that will help make daily routines a little easier and much safer. Please share ideas you have and we'll work to make them available!
We understand the importance of avoiding ingredients to which our kids on the spectrum have sensitivities or allergies. While we try very hard to include complete and accurate information about product ingredients, manufacturers may change them from time to time. Actual product packaging may contain more and different information than what is shown on our website. Please do not rely solely on the information presented and always read labels, warnings and directions before using or consuming a product.
