Send this letter to the cosemetic industry asking them to make sure we're "Just Beautiful".
To: The Canadian Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association (CCTFA)
We can't believe that harmful substances are allowed in our cosmetics and personal care products, and that we consumers can't always tell what's in them. That's why we're asking that cosmetics in Canada be given a makeover. To help us make healthier purchasing decisions we ask that you:
- Get rid of the Toxic Ten: Remove the Toxic Ten substances from all of your products. Avoid using all substances banned in Europe, and all substances known or suspected of being cancer-causing, mutagenic, reproductive toxicants, developmental toxicants, neurotoxicants, and hormone disruptors in your products.
- Disclose all ingredients: Manufacturers or distributors should disclose all substances (e.g. fragrance ingredients), intentional ingredients and unintentional ingredients (e.g., impurities), in their products without exception, both freely online before products hit the market and on labels.
So in making the cosmetics and personal care products we use each day, please stop using ingredients that put our health at risk, and make sure that you and we know what's in those products so that we can all be Just Beautiful.
