LUV Cosmetics Goes to Congress: Taking Action for Safe and Sustainable Cosmetics
MCDONOUGH, Ga. – March 14, 2016 – PRLog — LUV Mineral Cosmetics will be heading to Washington D.C next week to lobby for and support the amendments to the Personal Care Products Safety Act of 2015. CEO and founder, Melodie Ray, will be joining other leaders and experts in the cosmetics industry. They will be meeting with senators to propose revisions to the proposed legislation.
It is the governments’ job to protect consumers from harmful chemicals in their products, and as the FDA implements extensive regulations in the food and drug industries, the cosmetic and personal care industry remains unregulated. This allows toxic substances to remain in beauty and personal care products which have links to cancer, birth defects, reproductive and neurological illnesses. Although these practices affect the lives of all people, women of color, especially black women and children are disproportionately affected. LUV is a brand that specifically meets the cosmetic needs of women of color and participates in the congressional briefing and lobbying to help give voice to the needs of women of color.
March 15th will mark a historic occasion as the safety of cosmetics has not been addressed in Washington for over 77 years since the enactment of the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetics Act of 1938.
LUV Mineral Cosmetics is proud to be a part of the movement for safe and clean cosmetics that is taking the nation by storm. Our goal is not only to implement and force change in Washington through Congress, but also to educate government leaders and consumers alike on the importance of safe and sustainable cosmetics and business practices.
