Campaign for Personal Care and Cosmetics in Aust
STOP USING CHEMICALS LINKED TO CANCER AND BIRTH DEFECTS IN BODYCARE PRODUCTS! The European Union has implemented a law that requires cosmetics companies to remove reproductive toxins, mutagens and carcinogens from personal care products. The State of California recently passed legislation requiring manufacturers to disclose to the state any product ingredient that is on state or federal lists of chemicals linked to cancer or birth defects. Australian companies and legislation need to get in line with these emerging international trends to protect consumers. Chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects and other health issues do not belong in products we use on ourselves and our children everyday. However, some popular brands of shampoo, deodorant, moisturizers, perfumes, nail polishes, cosmetics etc contain these dangerous chemicals We, the undersigned, call on all cosmetics and personal care companies to protect our health by phasing out the use of chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects and other health concerns in every market they serve.
