Safe Cosmetics in California

California was the first state to pass legislation governing the safety and reporting of cosmetic ingredients.

In a landmark advance for the safety of cosmetics products, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signs into law the Cosmetics Safety Act of 2005. The law, sponsored by the Breast Cancer Fund, requires manufacturers to disclose to the state any product ingredient that is on state or federal lists of chemicals that cause cancer or birth defects. The law brings additional scrutiny to an industry accustomed to only minimal oversight.
