Personal Care Products
Did you know there are thousands of chemicals in lotion, shampoo, lipstick, and shaving cream? In fact, some contain ingredients linked to breast cancer, infertility, and birth defects.
We are all exposed to toxic chemicals through our everyday use of personal care products. Learn about chemicals linked to breast cancer in these products.
The word fragrance on a personal care product label can mask countless carcinogens and hormone disrupting chemicals that increase breast cancer risk.
What’s happening in policy
The $84 billion personal care products industry remains one of the least regulated in the United States. BCPP is vigorously pursuing health-protective cosmetic safety legislation.
The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a program of BCPP, protects people and the planet from toxic chemicals by educating the public; transforming the beauty industry to make products safer; and advocating for health-protective laws that benefit everyone regardless of where they live, work, or shop. As the original trailblazer for safe cosmetics, we focus on eliminating dangerous chemicals linked to cancer and other serious health concerns from beauty and personal care products once and for all.
BCPP’s Campaign for Safe Cosmetics works with non-profits, cosmetic companies, and people like you to clean up the beauty industry.
