Did you know?

  • The Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA, the act that oversees personal care products) has not been updated in 20 years.
  • The United States has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938.
  • More than 80,000 chemicals are on the market today; many of which have never been tested for human health safety. This is particularly true of those in the skin care and beauty industry.
  • The European Union has banned more than 1,300 ingredients in the product formulas of personal care products and restricted the levels of more than 250 more.
  • Canada merely has a “hot list” of ingredients that at this time are not regulated.
  • The United States has only partially banned 30 of these ingredients to date.
  • Decades of studies indicate that serious health issues — including, but not limited to, asthma, cancer, and infertility — are on the rise and are due in some part to ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals.
