Even if you are not a regular salon-goer yourself, this first-of-its-kind legislation has the power to drastically improve the health, and human rights of salon workers in California, and eventually, hopefully, throughout the nation.
The FDA has known for over 6 years that salon worker’s health is being harmed by the use of products containing formaldehyde. Enough is enough!
Working long hours for uncertain and often substandard pay, salon workers are also exposed to highly toxic chemicals linked to respiratory ailments, cancer, miscarriage and more.
We certainly need new legislation to fix the many problems with how cosmetics are regulated, but much like the Personal Care Product Safety Act, this bill really misses the mark when it comes to ensuring the safety of cosmetic ingredients.
