U.S. Government Must Protect Consumers From Unsafe Ingredients Used In Personal Care And Cosmetics Industries

August 24, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
The U.S. government needs to regulate the personal care and beauty industries, a New York Times editorial argues, citing the Wen Hair Care case. The editorial called for stronger consumer protection from harmful ingredients used in cosmetics and other personal care products. While the EU has banned or restricted the use of more than 1,400 ingredients, the U.S. has acted only on 11. With cosmetics safety highlighted as a women’s health issue, an increasing number of companies are working to create and promote ethically conscious products.
