Campaign for Safe Cosmetics : FAQ: Companies and the Compact for Safe Cosmetics

Here is just an excerpt from the Q & A section from the site I posted earlier....please do not be offended if you see a company listed here that you are a rep for (I used to rep for a couple of them myself). This is not intended to make anyone look bad or to judge someone for being a customer...just trying to bring more awareness to potential health concerns in our personal care products. These companies can reformulate their products to be safe!

Campaign for Safe Cosmetics : FAQ: Companies and the Compact for Safe Cosmetics: "Q: I don’t see Arbonne, Avon, Mary Kay, Melaleuca or other similar companies listed on your website, even though they claim to be “safe,” “natural” or donate money to breast cancer research. What’s the deal?

A: Arbonne, Avon, Mary Kay and Melaleuca are aware of the Compact for Safe Cosmetics but have refused to sign it. If they are truly supporting women’s health and making “safe” products, it shouldn’t be too hard for them to sign the Compact. Hundreds of companies have signed the Compact, a commitment to manufacture personal care products free of known and suspected toxic chemicals.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics does not endorse or hand-pick “safe” companies to refer customers to. The growing list of safer companies on our Web site is comprised solely of companies that have signed the Compact for Safe Cosmetics. If you don’t see a company on the list, we encourage you to send a letter letting them know about the Compact and urging them to sign it.

For a sample letter to get you started, please check out the Materials section of the Web site."
