This is Lucy.

Lucy represents thousands of little girls of color in the U.S. who are unjustly exposed to toxic chemicals, like formaldehyde, in their hair products.

We know that black women are more likely to die from the disease and get breast cancer at a younger age than other women.

This is why we need beauty companies—especially those that target vulnerable women and children—to disclose all toxic ingredients. We can make this a reality with the Safe Cosmetics and Personal Care Products Act of 2019 (H.R. 4296)!

Protect Lucy and other girls like her. Pitch in today!

Last year, our shocking Right to Know fragrance report revealed what was really lurking inside 30+ common personal care products. Turns out, the worst beauty product we found was even more toxic than bathroom cleaner!

This is why little girls like Lucy need your help!

Your dollars go to: uniting our community and business partners around this vital issue; scientific testing and research on dangerous product exposures; and educating legislators to get this bill passed.

Can’t give today?

Ingredients linked to cancer and birth defects should not be allowed to lurk in shampoo, soap, deodorant, lotion, toothpaste, and bubble bath. Enough is enough.

For the first time ever, H.R. 4296 will create the strongest safety standard for make-up and personal care products before they even hit store shelves in the U.S.

Protect yourself and your loved ones from toxic chemicals.

Give today to support our #safecosmetics movement so that we can pass this bill, backed by science, into law!

Thanks in advance,
