Major Cosmetics Makers Agree to Reformulate
Major cosmetics companies agree to reformulate to comply with European Union safety standards for cosmetics.
As a founding member of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, the Breast Cancer Fund targets manufacturers that use known or suspected carcinogens and toxins in personal care products. Two industry leaders, L'Oreal and Revlon, take a first step by agreeing to reformulate globally to comply with European Union safety standards for cosmetics. More than 200 companies go several steps further by signing the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, a pledge to remove chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, reproductive harm and other health effects from their products.
