2. Bisphenol-S (BPS)
Although not quite as well-known as BPA, BPS or Bisphenol-S is another sneaky ingredient used by manufacturers. Since consumers have become increasingly aware of the dangers associated with the use of BPA, some manufacturers have swapped it out in favor of BPS. Not as much is known about as BPS at this point but early research is not encouraging. So far it appears that BPS may be slightly less disruptive to the body’s hormones, but it may be more readily absorbed by the skin than BPA is, so it may not be a very desirable replacement.
