With more and more consumers concerned about the health impacts of synthetic chemicals in their cosmetics, are retailers being naughty or nice? Are they committed to cosmetics safety or do they stock products like baby shampoo, lipstick, and moisturizers that contain chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, infertility, and other chronic diseases? Read our new report, Retailer Therapy, to find out.

Read the press release.

Who’s nice? We know that some retailers have policies to screen out certain chemicals of concern, offer safer alternatives, and provide information to the public about their cosmetics safety practices.

Who’s naughty? Most major retailers are failing to take personal care product safety seriously, commit to improving their purchasing priorities, and ensure that everyone has access to safe and affordable products.

Write to Walmart, Target, Macy’s, CVS, Walgreens, Costco, and Kroger’s and demand that they adopt a policy and process to only sell personal care products that don’t have carcinogens and other toxic chemicals at all of their store locations, starting with their own store brands.
