Safety in Body Care Products

Our health & body care staff is committed to supporting good health for our members and customers. In that spirit, we have decided to remove any products from our shelves that contain 3 or more parts per million of the potential carcinogen,1,4-Dioxane. The number of products we carry that exceed this number was minimal. In addition, we are working with the National Cooperative Grocers Association and our suppliers to ensure that the natural products we carry are safe and will only be safer in the future.

If you have questions about particular products, please ask our staff, or contact Wellness Manager Emily Kaster at If you want to read the alert information from the Organic Consumers Association (which includes a list of products they tested for 1.4-Dioxane), visit their website.
