Eighty Years Overdue

The federal law designed to ensure that personal care products are safe has remained largely unchanged since 1938.

Americans have waited far too long for cosmetics safety reform. It’s time.

Take Action

Stand Up for Cosmetics Safety Reform

The United States Senate is weighing the Personal Care Products Safety Act, which would require ingredients included in personal care products to be tested for safety. Act now and tell your senators to support the Personal Care Products Safety Act.
