Bipartisan Senate Bill Would Help Protect Consumers from Toxic Chemicals in Personal Care Products

Bipartisan Senate Bill Would Help Protect Consumers from Toxic Chemicals in Personal Care Products

Thursday, May 11, 2017

WASHINGTONA bill introduced by Sens. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, would help the federal Food and Drug Administration ensure that cosmetics and other personal care products are safer, noted Scott Faber, EWG’s senior vice president of government affairs.

Faber’s full statement is below:

It’s simply outrageous that cosmetics companies can put just about any chemical in personal care products, no matter how dangerous it is. We applaud Senator Feinstein and Senator Collins for continuing to make our public health a priority. While no bill is perfect, the Personal Care Products Safety Act will provide the Food and Drug Administration many of the tools the agency needs to protect consumers from dangerous chemicals in everyday products.
