Over 400 Companies Fulfill Safe Cosmetics Pledge

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics announced today that 321 cosmetics companies have met the goals of the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, the Campaign’s voluntary pledge to avoid chemicals banned by health agencies outside the U.S. and to fully disclose product ingredients – a pioneering practice in the cosmetics industry. An additional 111 companies made significant progress toward those goals. Read all about it and see the list of companies in our new report, Market Shift.

This is great news for you the consumer, the Campaign, the cosmetics industry and the lawmakers working to pass the Safe Cosmetics Act. These 432 companies are leading the industry toward safety, showing it’s possible to make quality products without using the hazardous chemicals that are all too common in conventional personal care products.

The new report  -- Market Shift: The story of the Compact for Safe Cosmetics and the growth in demand for safe cosmetics – describes the seven-year project during which the Campaign worked with companies in a unique partnership to raise the bar for safer personal care products. Please read and share the report with your friends and family, and vote with your dollars this holiday season to support companies that are doing the right thing—keeping toxic chemicals out of people and the environment.
