The good news is, many companies are making safer products that work just as well if not better than products made with toxic chemicals – the challenge is that you have to do some research to find them. Because of major loopholes in federal law, companies are allowed to use nearly any ingredient in cosmetics and personal care products – even chemicals that are known to harm human health and the environment – without listing everything on the label. Check out the "laggards" section below to learn more about some of the companies that really need to clean up their act.
Fortunately, many responsible cosmetics companies agree that safe is beautiful and are setting a high bar in the marketplace by agreeing not to use toxic chemicals in their products.
We're working with hundreds of these companies – retailers, manufacturers and beauty industry professionals – who support the goals of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and who've committed to educate others about safe cosmetics.
