Ask Congress to support safe cosmetics legislation

What are all those chemicals in your lipstick? Your aftershave? Your child's shampoo? Some of them are linked to cancer, birth defects, infertility and other health problems. We need your help to convince Congress that the beauty industry needs a safety makeover!

The Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010 gave consumers, parents and environmental health advocates a real chance at national legislation that would eliminate harmful chemicals from the products women, men and children put on their bodies every day.

Now the 111th Congress has come to a close. The bill will need to be
reintroduced in the new 112th 
Congress.                                                              Campaign for Safe Cosmetics picture
