Target needs a safe cosmetics policy!

Many personal care products—from baby shampoo and deodorant to lotion and mascara—have been found to contain chemicals we inhale, ingest, and absorb through our skin. And, many of these chemicals may be linked to cancer, birth defects, learning disabilities and other health problems epidemic in our society.

Because the ingredients that go into cosmetics and personal care products aren't regulated by the federal government, responsible retailers should create safeguards against cosmetic toxins to protect their customers’ health.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics reports, "Target carries a range of safer alternatives, but lacks a policy to address chemicals of concern in the full range of personal care products it sells.Target is currently determining what criteria would go into a personal care product standard."

We have an opportunity to help Target set a storewide safe cosmetics policy.

Tell Target it needs to move forward and adopt a storewide safe cosmetics policy now!

Dear Target,

Please help protect my family against toxins in cosmetics and personal care products by quickly adopting a storewide safe cosmetics policy that includes the following:

1) Creates a list of poisonous chemicals to ban from products in your beauty and personal care aisles, and reformulates your private label, Up & Up, to exclude any of those ingredients it may contain.

2) Expands your selection of safer products.

3) Provides information to consumers in a transparent and inclusive way about your progress in making cosmetic and personal care products safer.

Thank you!

    Will you help tell Target that we need nontoxic cosmetics?
    Hi,

And, many of these chemicals may be linked to cancer, birth defects, learning disabilities and other health problems epidemic in our society.

    I'm in and out of Target all the time, so I just signed an open letter to Target urging them to adopt a safe cosmetics policy. Can you sign, too?
