What are VOCs? | General overview by EWG

Your substances


Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are harmful chemicals emitted by various products in our environment, leading to health issues. Symptoms of exposure include headaches, dizziness, and more severe health problems over time. VOCs are found in everyday items like furniture, cleaning products, and cosmetics. Government regulations on VOCs are limited, so consumers should check labels, choose products carefully, and improve ventilation to reduce exposure. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) provides resources to help individuals minimize their VOC exposure and ensure safe choices for their health.
