Every day, millions of women could be putting their health at risk as they unknowingly expose themselves to toxins.
The laundry list of toxins commonly found in cosmetics goes on and on. According to the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, of all the chemicals used in cosmetics, nearly nine hundred are toxic. In fact, 450 ingredients that are used in the United States are banned for use in cosmetics in the European Union.
In spite of all this, the Food and Drug Administration doesn’t require safety testing before beauty products hit the market. Most
readily available makeup is loaded with chemicals that are either untested for long-term effects on your health, or have already been proven to have potentially harmful qualities.
The FDA is responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety of our product, but this just simply isn’t happening. Tell Congress we want the FDA to test and regulate the ingredients put in cosmetics by signing this petition.
