It’s Time to Get Chemicals Out of Cosmetics

It’s Time to Get Chemicals Out of Cosmetics Environmental Defence

Toxic chemicals in cosmetics and personal care products are one of my biggest beefs. You can find my compiled list of toxic chemicals to avoid in a previous post. Endocrine disrupters and carcinogens are often found in our personal care products. Environmental Defence has recently released a report on the Canadian cosmetics industry, and the “Big 5” cosmetics companies in Canada were ranked based on:

  • Whether they have a plan for getting rid of toxic ingredients;
  • How they are addressing concerns about chemicals in their products;
  • Whether they disclose fragrance ingredients on their product labels.

Here’s how they ranked:

  1. Procter & Gamble
  2. Johnson & Johnson
  3. Unilever
  4. Estée Lauder
  5. L’Oréal

Download the full report to see the report card on these companies.

We can all do our part to help make a difference in what is in our cosmetics and personal care products. Take a few minutes to join Environmental Defence in lobbying for change. Let’s get toxic chemicals out of cosmetics!
