Why aren't baby diapers and sanitary napkins rated?

Ophélia Bierschwale Updated by Ophélia Bierschwale

Yuka doesn't rate diapers, cotton balls, cotton swaps, tampons or sanitary napkins. Their composition is different than traditional cosmetic products and we've not yet developed a method for analyzing these types of products.

Manufacturers are under no legal obligation to list the ingredients in their products. This information is therefore, in most cases, absent from tampon or sanitary napkin packaging.

How did we do?

Does Yuka rate household cleaning and maintenance products?

Is organic labeling taken into account in the rating of cosmetic products?
