This bill covers makeup and personal care products (lotions, soaps, baby wipes, etc.).
Current law requires a company to post a warning on any product whose safety has not been substantiated. But the law does not define safety or require that companies document their (highly variable) decisions on what is safe enough to sell. The 2010 Safe Cosmetics Bill, opposed by industry groups and conservatives, aims to strengthen regulations and increase transparency.
If you don't support this particular legislation, what (if anything) do you think needs to be changed?

barefoot, my point is... I am happy with my OWN choices. I avoid buying products on a whim, so I don't whip out my cell phone. I pretty much know what I am buying when I leave to goto the store. I don't buy Cover Girl, Maybelline, etc. I buy MAC because I am happy with the information I have learned over the years ON MY OWN... I don't rely on the government to determine what is best for me. If I can't understand the ingredients, I don't buy it. My parents are organic farmers who makes her own lotions. My sister in law is an aromatherapists who has trained in Europe and Asia. Between them, the companies, and various websites~ I am satisfied with the information I have collected. I have also used the books, "The Beauty Bible", and "A Consumer's Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients". I am happy that I have taken the time to gain some knowledge and NOT rely on a government agency. MY CHOICE. I feel the same about food/grocery.
