Last month, we talked about the unique role our government plays in regulating toxins and chemicals so they don’t make it into our food chain, our water, the air we breathe and the beauty and cleaning products we use all day, every day. This month, we invite you to participate in our free webinar, featuring two of our partners—the California Healthy Nail Salon Collaborative and the Environmental Working Group, to present “Toxic Cosmetics Part II: Demanding Stronger Regulation.”
The webinar will:
- Give a brief summary of the problem with cosmetic regulation
- Connect our current Think Before You Pink campaign to the need for the Safe Cosmetics Act
- Discuss the breakdown of the chemicals involved
- Review what California is doing and how it can be a model for the nation and
- Provide ways for you to take action
Last year, we held a similar webinar on “Toxic Cosmetics: What Consumers Don’t Know About Their Beauty Products and What You Can Do About It”. This webinar generated a lot of great thought provoking questions and discussion. With all the news over the past year around harmful chemicals in our beauty products (formaldehyde in Brazilian Blowout, unlisted carcinogens in nail polish and lead in lipstick) and cosmetics companies — including many that put pink ribbons on their products —fighting to keep their products among the least-regulated in the country, we need to demand stronger government regulation now.
Join us on Monday, November 26th 1pm PST (4pm EST) or Friday November 30th 11am PST (2pm EST) for this free one-hour webinar to learn about how we can work to eliminate toxins with known and suspected links to breast cancer in our products and advocate to have protections in place that prioritize people’s health over private profit.
