March 26, 2019 - Whole Foods Market Bans Two Common Ingredients Found in Sunscreen as Part of its Rigorous Body Care Standards
As of April 2019, Whole Foods Market will become the first national retailer to ban both oxybenzone (benzophenone-3) and octinoxate (octyl methoxycinnamate), two ingredients commonly found in chemical sunscreens and body care products. The company will no longer sell body care and sunscreen products in the U.S. that contain these ingredients, which are linked to damaging marine environments and ecosystems, including coral reefs.
For the second year, Whole Foods Market partners with James Beard Award-winning cookbook author Joan Nathan to offer unique and delicious dishes for Passover. Nathan, an expert on Jewish cooking, developed a Passover meal for eight, now available for pre-order in store and online at shop.wfm.com.
