Hey everyone, a new act going through Congress right now has caught my eye and the eye of many cosmetic/soaping businesses within the US- but not in a good way. If this new act gets passed, the prices of cosmetics (most commercial soaps are considered cosmetics as well) and their components/ingredients will skyrocket, many businesses will go out of business, and you can pretty much say goodbye to colorants and fragrances.

Please read up on the new Act here: http://personalcaretruth.com/2011/07/safe-cosmetics-act-2011-cover-table-of-contents-and-sec-611-definitions/
The poster has added her own comments in green to explain all the legalize and the current regulations in yellow.

And if you wish, you can sign a petition to oppose this Act (H.R. 2359) here: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/no-2-sca-2011/

Thank you for posting this. I've been aware of the Safe Cosmetics Act since 2009 or so. I have a bath/body business (www.memecosmetics.net--not trying to drum up biz here--just FYI) and honestly, I do not think this act will pass. Seems to me that Congress, the Senate & government as a whole (local, county, state, federal) have, as the cliche goes, "bigger fish to fry". I am not attempting to downgrade the seriousness of this bill; I will may go out of business if this passes or move to Canada & take my job creating business with me.

i skimmed. but heres my opinion. it will suck for small busineses, but if i read right, im all for this! take that mercury and lead and aluminum out!!! no-one seems to realize just how bad mercury is. and its in eyeliners!!! i wanted to start making cosmetics, thats how i found this thread, and it is sad prices will be raised. but i for one will splurge when it comes to my health, and the health of the children coming out of my already tainted body. a few extra bucks? whoopde doo. time to stop spending extra money on starbucks. oh no, im going to die.
