Revlon markets itself as a company that cares about women and cancer, yet it uses toxic chemicals linked to cancer and other diseases in its products. Our recent survey of Revlon products revealed numerous toxic chemicals—including parabens and chemicals that release the carcinogen formaldehyde—in mascaras, face creams, hair dyes and other products. 

The Breast Cancer Fund and the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics teamed up with our friends at UltraViolet to launch a campaign demanding that Revlon stop using toxic chemicals in its makeup and hair dye. More than 45,000 people have weighed in so far.

Take action! Write to Revlon’s Chairman and CEO

Revlon responded by threatening us with legal action. Our message to Revlon is that no amount of bullying is going to make us stop advocating on behalf of the millions of people who want and deserve safe cosmetics. At a time when Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble, Target and Walmart are cleaning up the beauty aisle by eliminating toxic chemicals, Revlon is like a dinosaur frozen in time in a changing world.

We’re demanding that Revlon:

•    Develop a comprehensive “safe cosmetics policy” to protect women from chemicals linked to cancer and other adverse health effects.
•    Support federal cosmetics safety legislation.
•    Share the Revlon product safety policy publicly on the company’s website.
