I posted The Story Of Cosmetics video when it was first released.
It garnered a lot of controversy along with my post about the 2010 Safe Cosmetics Act.
This list of Myths and Facts is a reminder.
The Story of Cosmetics has been viewed more than 350,000 times since it was released on July 21, tens of thousands of people have joined the movement to make personal care products safe and healthy for everyone, and Congress has received thousands of letters of support for the newly introduced Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010.
While we've really turned up the volume on this issue, we want even more people talking about these toxic products, watching the video and taking action to support meaningful policy change.
Share the video with your friends.
Why not plan a visit to your U.S. Representative's hometown office to tell him or her why the Safe Cosmetics Act is important to you? Congress is out on recess this fall, and office visits are empowering and easier than you might think!
Together we're showing chemical manufacturers, companies and elected officials that we really mean it: we want truly safe cosmetics for everyone, ASAP!

P.S. We've received an outpouring of support for the film - and the bill - from cancer survivors, salon workers, leaders among safe cosmetics companies, parents and concerned consumers. There's been some misinformation circulating, too, which is to be expected when big changes are afoot. So why did we make The Story of Cosmetics?
