Phthalates


Phthalates (pronounced THA-lates) are a group of chemicals that can make products (usually plastics) softer and more flexible. They are sometimes called plasticizers, but many other chemicals are also called plasticizers.


Phthalates are used in a range of products, including:


  • * polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic, which is a specific type of plastic used in some products,       such as shower curtains

  • * medical plastics, such as PVC IV bags and tubes

  • * children’s toys and supplies

  • * cosmetics, such as nail polish and perfumes
