I was just browsing through various websites to know more about the brands and their partner companies and I found this legal FDA website, that can be a lot of interest to all IMBB readers.
It tells the details about safe/unsafe cosmetics, and what goes into them.
Also within the above mentioned page, I found a link to the website that gives the information about the cosmetic brands that have signed the “Safe Compact”. (http://safecosmetics.org/index), which details more on FDA regulations, cosmetic brands and other necessary details about the ingredients used. According to this FDA approved website:
“Since 2004, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics has coordinated the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, a voluntary pledge of safety and transparency. In the course of six years, more than 1,500 companies signed the Compact.
As of January 2011, we are phasing out the Compact. We continue to work closely with existing Compact signers to develop new ways that manufacturers of personal care products can engage with the Campaign around shared values of product safety and ingredient transparency.
As we transition between the Compact and a new company engagement tool, we hope to help as many companies as possible reach compliance with the Compact. When the Compact officially closes in summer 2011, consumers will be able to search for compliant signers via the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics Web site and EWG’s Skin Deep database”
The website also tells details about what goes in your cosmetic products in below link:
The complete list of these companies that have signed the “Safe Compact” are given in below pdf:
I hope you share this information with the readers, so that they can choose better!! 🙂
