    Did You Know?

    The FDA finally banned the bad stuff. (We never had any of it.)

    The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has now banned nineteen commonly-used ingredients found in antibacterial soaps and washes — including suspected endocrine disruptors triclosan and triclocarban shown to harm reproductive and developmental health.

    Reality check: it’s time to question your daily routine.

    Among the 19 blacklisted ingredients are:

    1. Cloflucarban
    2. Fluorosalan
    3. Hexachlorophene
    4. Hexylresorcinol
    5. Iodophors: iodine-containing ingredients
    6. Iodine complex: ammonium ether sulfate & polyoxyethylene sorbitan monolaurate
    7. Iodine complex: phosphate ester of alkylaryloxy polyethylene glycol
    8. Nonylphenoxypoly, or ethyleneoxy, ethanoliodine
    9. Poloxamer: iodine complex of Povidone-iodine 5-10%
    10. Undecoylium chloride iodine complex
    11. Methylbenzethonium chloride
    12. Phenol greater than 1.5%
    13. Phenol less than 1.5%
    14. Secondary amyltricresols
    15. Sodium oxychlorosene
    16. Tribromsalan
    17. Triclocarban
    18. Triclosan
    19. Triple dye

    And there’s more on the horizon — a final decision is still pending on benzalkonium chloride, benzethonium chloride and chloroxylenol (PCMX).

    Five Questions for Nicole Rechelbacher, IN Co-Owner

    We caught up with our fearless leader & daughter of Horst Rechelbacher, founder of Intelligent Nutrients and Aveda.

    Q: How was your childhood different from others?
    A: How wasn’t it? My friends thought my dad looked like John Lennon. He was flying all over the world, cooking clove shampoo in our sink, inviting Tibetan monks and Native elders over, and telling us to eat organic instead of OREOS. We didn’t have a picket fence, we had a mandala.

    Q: How did growing with an entrepreneur change your worldview?
    A: Creativity was a way of life for us—but so was hustle. I was cutting hair in high school. I was schlepping to shows and assisting him onstage. I was doing makeup backstage at hair shows and photo shoots. All while my friends were working jobs as lifeguards or retail.

    Dad was never impressed by who people said they were. He was impressed by what you did. And that instilled a big work ethic in me.
