In a lifetime, a person may encounter tens of thousands of chemicals used as ingredients in the products they buy. It’s not easy to measure these chemicals because the companies that sell the products aren’t required to divulge the exact chemical ingredients.

Researchers want to compare how existing methods, such as surveys and models, measure exposure to chemicals in personal care and household products. This study intends to test and improve the ways that studies gather data about how chemicals in products come in contact with consumers.
