About the Fund
The Consumer Products Fund was created to help consumers understand product labeling, marketing, advertising and product performance claims, and the potential health impacts of product ingredients by promoting awareness about the nature of the ingredients in the products they purchase, such as whether products are “natural,” and to promote truth-in-labeling and required warnings and disclosures. Consumers’ decisions to purchase a wide variety of products are influenced by marketing claims and advertising. In addition to product performance considerations, environmental health is an important consideration since purchasers come into contact with a wide variety of products, whether it be the personal care products we use, cleaning products used in our homes, or the food we eat. The Consumer Products Fund aids consumers in understanding product claims and making the best possible choices in products, including considering their health and the health of the environment by understanding the true nature of the ingredients in the products they choose.
