Name any type of beauty product, and the same concerns pop up: toxic ingredients – sometimes unlabeled – linked to cancer, and other health effects, and ingredients that have not been tested for safety. And it’s all completely legal!

The FDA is in charge of cosmetics, but doesn’t have the same regulatory authority over these products that it has over pharmaceuticals, medical devices and foods. The $50 billion cosmetics industry in fact regulates itself through its industry-funded Cosmetic Ingredient Review Panel.

The cosmetics industry is one of the least-regulated industries in this country and they have been fighting to make sure it stays that way.

The U.S. House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee is currently drafting a bill that would overhaul food, drug and cosmetic safety, but the current cosmetics provision isn’t as strong as it needs to be.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics are willing people to sign their online petition to tell them that you support strong health and safety standards for cosmetics. It shouldn’t be left up to consumers or the cosmetics industry to figure out what’s safe and what isn’t.

Here at theorganicsalon.com we understand the importance of safe and pure cosmetics, and you can be sure that all the products we retail are 100% natural.
