The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics (CSC) leads the movement to make beauty and personal care products safer for all.
CSC is a program of Breast Cancer Prevention Partners (BCPP), a national science-based advocacy organization working to prevent breast cancer by eliminating environmental exposures linked to the disease.
BCPP’s Campaign for Safe Cosmetics protects people and the planet from toxic chemicals by educating the public; transforming the beauty industry to make products safer; and advocating for health-protective laws that benefit everyone regardless of where they live, work, or shop.
As the original trailblazer for safe cosmetics, we focus on eliminating dangerous chemicals linked to cancer and other serious health concerns from beauty and personal care products once and for all.
Since our start nearly two decades ago, CSC has educated and engaged millions of consumers throughout the nation to move the $100 billion cosmetics industry toward a new standard: ingredient transparency and safer products for everyone.
More than 175 organizations have endorsed the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics Platform, indicating their support for the Campaign’s over-arching goal: stricter federal oversight and regulation of the cosmetics industry and safer personal care products for people and the planet.
The Modernization of Cosmetics Regulations Act of 2022 becomes law, representing the most significant cosmetic safety reform since 1938, thanks to nearly two decades of advocacy by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and our partners.
We are committed to ensuring safer beauty and personal care products for all by:
Helping people make safer, more informed purchases; Raising public awareness about toxic beauty to grow demand for safer products
Pressuring companies to make non-toxic products and partnering with clean beauty industry leaders on legislative advocacy
Engaging the public in state and federal legislative advocacy to pass state and federal cosmetic safety laws that protect everyone
Closing gaps in cosmetic safety that impact us all, especially vulnerable populations like women of color and salon workers
Spread the word about unsafe chemicals in cosmetics and how to find safer alternatives.
