The Environmental Working Group and the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics just announced the cosmetics brands that fulfilled their pledge to the Compact for Safe Cosmetics. Companies who made the voluntary pledge agreed to eliminate or avoid many chemicals and to fully disclose their product ingredients to consumers.
More than 300 companies were named Champions for the following:
- Complying with the European Union’s Cosmetics Directive, widely considered the global gold standard of cosmetics safety regulation.
- Disclosing all ingredients, including chemicals in any “fragrance.” (Fragrance ingredients are often shielded as trade secrets in the US, but can contain toxic chemicals such as hormone disruptors, carcinogens and other harmful substances.)
- Publishing and regularly updating product information in the EWG’s Skin Deep cosmetics database so that consumers have easy access to ingredients.
- Complied with any additional ingredient prohibitions and restrictions under the Compact for Safe Cosmetics and substituted ingredients of concern with safer alternatives.
