Breast Cancer Fund
Even if it's marked "pure and gentle," baby shampoo might contain contaminants linked to cancer. That's what the Breast Cancer Fund's Campaign for Safe Cosmetics found nearly a year ago, when product tests revealed formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane – neither of which were listed on ingredient labels – in children's shampoos, bubble baths and other cosmetics.
Yet because U.S. cosmetics are almost completely unregulated and FDA lacks even the basic authority to issue recalls on dangerous products, our government has taken no action.
Ask your Senator to support legislation that would require FDA to test kids' products for contaminants and work to prevent contamination in the first place. While we continue to work on a comprehensive solution to cosmetics safety, legislation to remove contaminants from kids' products would highlight the need to protect kids first.
