Tell Congress We Want Safe Cosmetics!

Have you ever wondered what is really in your cosmetics and personal care products? Or whether all those ingredients that you can barely pronounce are actually safe? Some of them are linked to cancer, birth defects, infertility and other health problems. Still others have never been tested for their impact on human health. We need your help to convince Congress that the beauty industry needs a safety makeover!

The Safe Cosmetics and Personal Care Products Act of 2013  (H.R. 1385) gives 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.

Tell your Representative that safe cosmetics and personal care products are important to you and your family and ask him or her to sign on as a co-sponsor of the Safe Cosmetics and Personal Care Products Act. Or, if you're represented by one of the bill's authors, Reps. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) or Ed Markey (D-Mass.), send them your thanks!
