EWG Calls on Mary Kay to Support the Personal Care Products Safety Act

EWG Calls on Mary Kay to Support the Personal Care Products Safety Act

Monday, July 25, 2016

 

Dear Mary Kay:

I urge Mary Kay to join cosmetic industry leaders – including L’Oreal, Revlon, Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble and many others – in support S.1014, the Personal Care Products Safety Act. 

Real cosmetics reform is long overdue. In a recent national poll, the majority of your consumers told us they want stricter oversight of personal care products and their ingredients.   

Some cosmetic ingredients have been linked to serious health problems, including cancer, severe allergies, and reproductive problems. But, no other class of consumer products has so few safeguards as cosmetics. 

Cosmetics industry leaders and your consumers agree that it’s time to give FDA the basic tools needed to ensure the safety of cosmetics. Please join L’Oreal, Revlon, Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble and other industry leaders in support of S. 1014, the Personal Care Products Safety Act. 

Sincerely, 

Ken Cook
