The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics has finally gained enough momentum to effect change in the cosmetic industry. Supported by the hundreds (if not thousands) of online blogs who have urged for a change, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics has gotten the ear of major cosmetic honchos and are changing the formulas for many products we never even knew were harmful. Did you know there were baby products with formaldehyde?
Johnson and Johnson pledged to remove potentially toxic chemicals from its cosmetics by 2015 and removed all toxins from baby products by the end of 2012 thanks to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.
Do you know what’s in your lipstick?
The group also passed a Safe Cosmetics Act of 2011 that requests cosmetic companies list the ingredients of cosmetics on the packaging. Imagine the amount of toxins that have seeped internally from your favorite beauty products? Just think, the amount of time you were fighting your breakouts externally could have been a result of toxins seeping internally from your makeup.
Johnson and Johnson has taken a major step to eliminate toxins, but not all cosmetic companies have done the same. As consumers, you control the market. Support only the products that go green in 2013.
