Tell Always to List All Ingredients!

Posted October 13th, 2014

Our test results show that Always pads release styrene, a known cancer-causing chemical, and other toxic chemicals listed by state and federal agencies as carcinogens and reproductive and developmental toxins.

None of these chemicals are listed on the label. We have a right to know.

Congress: Protect Women, Children & Workers from Toxic Chemicals

Posted June 19th, 2013

YOU broke the gridlock in Congress. Senators have just introduced a bi-partisan bill to update our broken laws on toxic chemicals. The Chemical Safety Improvement Act (S. 1009) currently has 20 co-sponsors, ten from each party.

The bill as drafted doesn’t do nearly enough to protect pregnant women, children, or workers like women who clean for a living – who are more likely to be harmed by exposure to toxic chemicals. It needs to be dramatically strengthened to adequately protect public health – and we need your help!

Take Action button Please urge the Senate to protect women, children, and workers with this bi-partisan bill!

Support the Safe Cosmetics & Personal Care Products Act!

Posted March 22nd, 2013

Take a moment to think back – did you use toothpaste, deodorant, moisturizer, sunscreen, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, cosmetics?

If you’re like most women, you probably use an average of 12 personal care products a day. So before you even walk out the door, you’ve already been exposed to 126 different chemicals from those products alone! Did you know that right now it’s perfectly legal for cosmetic companies to use chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, fertility problems, and hormone disruption in products we put on our body EVERYDAY?

Congressional leaders have just reintroduced the federal Safe Cosmetics & Personal Care Products Act (H.R. 1385). If passed, this historic bill will ensure personal care and salon products are free of harmful substances like formaldehyde, 1,4-dioxane, lead, mercury, and other toxic chemicals. The bill will also close labeling loopholes by requiring full ingredient disclosure directly on product labels and company websites, including ingredients in salon products and fragrance.
