MAKES 3 ORGANICS® SUPPORTS CALIFORNIA AB 495
Toxic Free Cosmetics Bill would Ban 20 Known Carcinogens from Cosmetics and Personal Care Products
Santa Barbara, California, April 11, 2019 – California-based Makes 3 Organics®, providing innovative alternatives to conventional and “natural” personal care products, announces its support of California AB 495, a bill introduced in the California legislature by Assembly Members Muratsuchi and Wicks. Existing law, the Sherman Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Law, prohibits the manufacture, sale, delivery, holding, or offer for sale of adulterated cosmetics, and prescribes when a cosmetic is adulterated, including when it bears or contains a poisonous or deleterious substance that may render it injurious to users when used as directed in the cosmetic’s labeling or advertising or under customary or usual conditions.
AB 495 would additionally prescribe that a cosmetic is adulterated if it contains asbestos, lead, or any of several specified intentionally added ingredients.
“California always leads the way for the nation in terms of consumer protection,” said Daniel Sperling, President of Makes 3 Organics®, “by supporting this bill we believe the rest of the country will act to ensure personal care products are free from harmful ingredients.”
Makes 3 Organics® products are already free from all of the harmful ingredients named in the bill.
