I want to applaud Director of Story Of Stuff Annie Leonard again.
Her video The Story Of Cosmetics recently launched and I just love it!!
She speaks to something out loud that I have often thought. How can cosmetic companies like Estee Lauder raise funds for cancer research and produce products with carcinogens in them? Shouldn’t they start in their own back yard and produce a safe cosmetic in the first place?
She speaks to having choices that really matter, not choices guided by marketing hoopla. She also applauds companies that have taken on being more responsible for what they manufacture and share with the public consumer.
You can have a say in what’s next for this unregulated industry. The Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010 needs your thoughts and support.
The Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010, introduced by U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky with Rep. Edward Markey and Rep. Tammy Baldwin, is a huge moment for consumers, parents and environmental health advocates: for the first time in 70 years, we have a real chance to pass national legislation that would eliminate harmful chemicals from the products women, men and children put on their bodies every day.
Now Congress needs to hear from us. Please tell your elected officials this common-sense legislation is important to you!
I have written in the past about the skin care products I absolutely adore.
