Campaign for Safe Cosmetics
January 27, 2011
San Francisco– The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics announced today that it will sunset the “Compact for Safe Cosmetics” and publish in summer 2011 the list of companies that are fully compliant with the voluntary product-safety and transparency pledge. The Compact, which has been signed by more than 1,500 cosmetics companies since 2004, calls for full disclosure of ingredients in personal care products and avoidance of chemicals known to cause cancer, reproductive harm and other health problems.
“We are proud that so far 250 companies have fulfilled all the promises of the Compact and hundreds more are close to compliance. We will be working with all of the Compact-signing companies in the months ahead to help many more achieve that goal,” said Lisa Archer, national coordinator of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a national coalition of health and environmental groups working to eliminate harmful chemicals in cosmetics.
