About Us

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. 

Our Mission ​

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.
