What is Veritey?
Veritey (ver/eh/tey) n., 1. A site comprised of healthy products tailored for your life. 2. A community getting to the root of healthy living. [Ver/i/te comes from the Latin root word Veritas meaning truth, combined with the sound of tai in tailored, plus the y stands for your.]
Veritey is a healthy living resource that enables you to quickly identify and purchase safe yet effective products. I like to say we make healthy living “think-proof.” While on the surface healthy living seems obvious: don’t drink excessively, don’t smoke, do regular exercise, see your doctor annually. But there’s a lot more to it than that.
We live in an increasingly chemical and exceedingly toxic world. There are over 84,000 chemicals used to make up our daily products. Most of them have never actually been tested, they’re not regulated by the FDA, and far to many are actually toxic. It’s not easy to parse a product label. If you have ever tried to determine what is in a trade secret formulation, or what’s included in a “fragrance,” or how a product has been produced, you realize how complicated and difficult this process can be.
Making matters worse if you do take on the task of doing all of the research on your products, you won’t necessarily know if the product is any good! Veritey solves that problem and puts you in charge of your body’s health.
Our goal is to arm you with all the information you need to make better, safer, healthier choices. As busy, tired, occasionally (well, sometimes more than occasionally!) overwhelmed parents ourselves, we recognized the need for a trusted voice to cut through the greenwashing clutter and provide clarity… and an easy way to buy GOOD goods. Together, we can change the world for the healthier. And you can start with your next purchase.
As product aficionados, we are always on the lookout for the best brands possible to share with our community. And we are extremely fanatical about what makes a worthy product. So when we do feature a product on Veritey, whether in Beauty or Bath, Baby or Household Cleaners, you can trust that it’s both excellent and safe.
