Safer Beauty Bill Package

At a Glance

The Modernization of Cosmetics Regulations Act of 2022 represents the biggest step forward for cosmetics regulation since 1938. Read our full analysis of the bill 

Despite this important progress, much work remains to be done to achieve a truly health-protective safety standard for cosmetics. We must address critical gaps in cosmetic safety that impact everyone, especially women of color and professional salon workers. Press Release

Past Legislation: Four bills were introduced in Congress in 2021-2022 to make beauty and personal care products safer for everyone by getting the toxic chemicals out, reducing unsafe chemical exposures for the most vulnerable, and making ingredient transparency the new industry standard. While the bills are no longer active in this 2023 session, the solutions they propose are still relevant today. Support safer beauty for all!

Safer Beauty Bill Package Bill Logos-2

Key Facts

These bills cover almost every aspect of personal care product safety. They will:

  • Ban the worst first: Ban 11 of the most toxic chemicals including mercury, formaldehyde, parabens, phthalates, phenylenediamines (hair dye chemicals), and the entire class of PFAS “forever” chemicals. (all of these chemicals are already banned in CA, MD, and the EU).
  • Defend the health of women of color and salon workers: These two vulnerable populations are among the most highly exposed to toxic chemicals because of the products marketed to them and those commonly found in their workplaces.
  • Reveal fragrance and flavor ingredients: Require the disclosure of these secret, unlabeled and often toxic chemicals in our personal care products (this is already required in CA).
  • Ensure supply chain transparency, so cosmetics companies can get the information they need from their upstream suppliers to make safer products.
