It’s exciting  times for people, the planet and manufacturers.

Ecospecifier Global continues to expand.

So what’s NEW!

There is something for everyone – Consumer, Professional, Manufacturer!

As we expand into Personal Care Products we have 44 approved Hair Care Items (click here) and we are currently investigating and researching the world of Nail Polish, Lipstick, Toothpaste and Deodorants. The more we know the healthier we can be!  There are so many products to discern, so we are creating guides to assist you with your purchasing. The first guide on Nail Polish will be launched in the next Ecospecifier Global November News.
