Tell Congress: It’s time for cosmetics safety reform!

Right now, cosmetics companies are allowed to use harmful ingredients like formaldehyde and coal tar! The law hasn’t been updated since 1938 and doesn’t require companies to show cosmetics ingredients are safe before they go to market. It’s way past time for Congress to step up and start looking out for us.

Add your names to this petition to stand with Environmental Working Group and demand that Congress act NOW to get dangerous chemicals out of cosmetics and personal care products!

Letter to
U.S. Congress
We need serious reform of the personal care products industry. I agree with Environmental Working Group, and I am asking you to ensure that all ingredients in cosmetics meet the highest level of safety for consumers. We need the FDA to protect us from dangerous chemicals in consumer products.
