Did you know toxic substances are allowed in our cosmetics and personal care products, and that we consumers can't always tell what's in them?
That's because many of the 1,700 cancer-causing, hormone disrupting, and allergy-inducing substances that have been banned or restricted in European personal care products are still used in Canadian products. What's worse is that the Canadian Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association (CCTFA) doesn't require manufacturers to tell consumers what's in the products they use every day.
Canadians deserve to be kept informed and safe from toxic substances in our cosmetics. It's time that the Canadian cosmetic industry got a makeover.
Ask the Canadian Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association (CCTFA) to stop using ingredients that put our health at risk and make sure we know what's in cosmetics and personal care products so we can all be Just Beautiful!
I can't believe that harmful substances are allowed in our cosmetics and personal care products, and that we consumers can't always tell what's in them. That's why I'm asking that cosmetics in Canada be given a makeover. To help us make healthier purchasing decisions.
Get rid of the Toxic Ten: Remove the Toxic Ten substances from all of your products. Avoid using all substances banned in Europe, and all substances known or suspected of being cancer-causing, mutagenic, reproductive toxicants, developmental toxicants, neurotoxicants, and hormone disruptors in your products.
Disclose all ingredients: Manufacturers or distributors should disclose all substances (e.g. fragrance ingredients), intentional ingredients and unintentional ingredients (e.g., impurities), in their products without exception, both freely online before products hit the market and on labels.

So in making the cosmetics and personal care products I use each day, please stop using ingredients that put my health at risk, and make sure that the public knows what's in those products so that we can all be Just Beautiful.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
