Right now, cosmetics companies can put almost any ingredient they want into personal care products without having to prove they are safe. It's way past time for Congress to step up and start looking out for us.
Thankfully, Reps. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) and Ed Markey (D-Mass.) have introduced H.R 1385, the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2013. This legislation would require pre-market safety assessment of cosmetics; establish a list of ingredients that cannot be used in cosmetics; give FDA strong recall authority to get unsafe ingredients off the market; and require full disclosure of ingredients used in cosmetics.
Take action today. Demand that Congress get dangerous chemicals out of our personal care products.
