Hey Guys -
I work with the Friends of the Earth Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a coalition of public health, educational, faith, labor, women's, environmental and consumer groups. Our goal is to protect the health of consumers and workers by requiring the health and beauty industry to phase out the use of chemicals linked to birth defects and other health problems and replace them with safer alternatives.
We have a particular focus on Phthalates, a chemical present in nearly three quarters of products tested by public health groups that has been linked to permanent birth defects in the human male reproductive system.
As a woman of child-bearing age I find this all pretty upsetting and wanted to provide you with the information. If you are interested, http://www.safecosmetics.org/docUpl...tty%5Fr51%2Epdf
details these findings and http://safecosmetics.org/facts/skindeep.cfm
provides a searchable database with safety ratings on the chemical content of most common bath and beauty products. Visit our site, www.safecosmetics.org

. Thanks a lot!
