Furthermore, according to UN, over 5000 women and girls are killed every year by family members in so-called ‘Honor Killings’ …

Campaign for Safe Cosmetics – Learn Social Media By Example

I’d like to start off this post by a few words, by Karl Kraus, to all women out there: “A woman who cannot be ugly is not beautiful“.

There is a wide range of different harmful chemicals which are constantly being used in the ingredients of many personal care and cosmetics, with 89% not being tested! Therefore, and out of sincere concern for the consumers’ health and overall well being, this campaign was constructed and is ongoing, strong and true, for its 6th consecutive year.

Idea & Objectives:

Not Just A Pretty Face

Not Just A Pretty Face

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics grew out of concerns about phthalates, a set of industrial chemicals linked to birth defects and reproductive harm. It has since evolved to include many other chemicals of concern found in personal care products. The campaign uses a science-based foundation and an engaged public to push companies to make safer products, and to convince the government to pass laws that protect our health.

Moreover, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is a coalition effort launched in 2004 to protect the health of consumers and workers by securing the corporate, regulatory and legislative reforms necessary to eliminate dangerous chemicals from cosmetics and personal care products.

Products you use daily – like shampoo, lipstick and cologne – might contain ingredients linked to health problems. Help us give the cosmetics industry a makeover!”
