Washington, D.C. — The Center for Baby and Adult Hygiene Products (BAHP) welcomes the introduction of The Menstrual Products Right to Know Act of 2022 (H.R. 8829) and calls on members of Congress to support its passage.

A Step Toward Consistency:  Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY) and Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ) have carefully crafted legislation that would establish a labeling system which is consistent, transparent, and meaningful for consumers and for the companies that manufacture feminine care products. The Menstrual Products Right to Know Act of 2022 will allow consumers to have a clearer understanding of ingredients in feminine care products they purchase at point-of-sale and for manufacturers to follow a consistent disclosure requirement that does not vary by state.

“Ingredients in personal care products, such as menstrual products, should be clearly communicated to consumers. We support a balanced federal labeling standard to ensure consistency across the U.S. so that consumers can interpret ingredients the same way regardless of their zip code,” said Bryan Nicholson, Executive Director of BAHP.  “This important legislation is a significant step forward in ensuring that women have the information they need to confidently make decisions about their health and the products they use.”

About BAHP: BAHP serves as the unified voice for personal absorbent hygiene products industry in North America. We foster and advocate for the personal absorbent hygiene products industry by promoting and supporting the safety, sustainability, and integrity of its products.
