Safe Cosmetics Act of 2011 Introduced In U.S. House

28 Jun

June 27, 2011 www.safecosmetics.org
Dear Green,

Our hard work is paying off! This year, you and thousands of Campaign for Safe Cosmetics supporters urged the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to get cancer-causing formaldehyde out of Brazilian Blowout and other hair-straightening products.

And recently, you signed the petition to the Obama Administration asking for prevention to be a major focus of our country’s cancer plan (we joined our allies at the White House in May and dropped off all 73,000 signatures!).

Well, we have exciting news: you’ve helped build the momentum for Congressional leaders to reintroduce the federal Safe Cosmetics Act in the House of Representatives Friday.

This bill (H.R.2359) would give the FDA the authority it needs to ensure that personal care products are free of harmful substances like lead, 1,4-dioxane and chemicals linked to cancer.

Existing law, which has not been updated in 70 years, allows companies to use these and other toxic chemicals in products we use on our bodies every day. We know that the U.S. can do better to protect our families and to remain a world leader in the marketplace!

Please urge your House members to co-sponsor the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2011. Here’s how:

1. Email them using our easy form.

2. Call them. Use our Legislator Lookup, dial the number for your federal Representative (we’re not contacting Senators yet), and use the email text as a guide for your message to the staff person who answers the phone. Calls usually take about 1 minute, but they are really important!

3. Visit them. You have the right to meet with your Representative (or his or her staffers) to tell them that you want safe cosmetics. Check out our Legislative Toolkit to learn more.

Please take action and spread the word!

Thanks for all you do to make cosmetics safe for all of us.

Sincerely,
Lisa, Mia, Stacy, Jamie, Marisa, Nancy and all of us at the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics

P.S. If you haven’t seen it already, check out The Story of Cosmetics, a short film that breaks down why we really need the Safe Cosmetics Act.

YOU did it!

Thanks to your support, Congress is now considering the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2011. Ask your U.S. Representative to sign on as a co-sponsor.

Take Action

Sunday,1 May Hyères, France  The jury, presided over by Raf Simons, unveils the winners: French designer Céline Méteil has won the Première Vision Prize, one of two prizes attributed in the Fashion Competition of the prestigious Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography.

Selected from among ten finalists, Céline Méteil created a collection of airy and structured origami dresses made from jaconas. This stiff and transparent cotton plainweave is ordinarily employed to create a three dimensional muslin prototype of a garment. Her highly architectural clothing entertains a dialogue with the body, building on layers of transparency and lace and shaped in subtle balance with fluid knits.

Baptised “Plié Backstage”, the collection was produced with the support of Sophie Hallette, Mario boselli Yarns & Jersey and TESJ, all PremièreVision exhibitors, and Close to Clothes, a Mod Amont exhibitor.

Céline Méteil, 32,also won the”Prix du Public”,and has worked with John Galliano, Nicolas Ghesquière (at Balenciaga) and Felipe Oliveira Baptista. At thispoint she is aspiring to launchher own brand. This is the first year that PremièreVision, the World’s Premier Fabric Show, has partnered withthe Hyères festival and sponsored one of its prizes, in the amount of 10,000 euros. But the Première Vision Prize goes beyond the awarding of the prize money to the winning young designer.

Première Vision, whose vocation is to further contacts between professionals in this most creativeof fields, is fully committed to this programme to support young design talents, and to building a longterm relationship.
