FDA: Remove Toxic Chemicals from Cosmetics & Skincare Products

This petition had 119 supporters


Cosmetics & skincare companies are allowed to put toxic chemicals  in skincare and beauty products because the FDA does not regulate them. I want this changed!! Cosmetics and skincare companies use harmful ingredients such as formaldehyde which is a known carcinogen. In addition, they contain ingredients such as sodium laureth sulfate, an ingredient commonly used in shampoos which is also linked to cancer and parabens which are linked to hormone distruption. There are many other toxic chemicals in cosmetics and skincare products. This is just a small example of the ingredients that should be banned from these products. My goal for this petition is to bring awareness to this because many people are not aware that these ingredients that are in so many of the products that they use are very harmful and to get the FDA to regulate these products as well. I am hoping that if the FDA regulates these products they will eventually decide to eliminate these ingredients in these products.

You maybe be thinking that since we are not ingesting these products, that it does not matter what is in them, however, we absorb 60% of what we put on our body. so we need to be more aware of what we use and the effect the products have on our long term health.
