Tell P&G to remove cancer-causing chemicals from cosmetics!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.  Unfortunately a great amount of beauty products still contain cancer-causing ingredients.   

Even the lowest levels of carcinogenic chemicals, can be very harmful when found in products used every day like; make-up, skincare and hair products.


I just signed an online petition asking Mr A.G Lafleythe Chairman of the Board, President, and CEO of P&G, to remove cancer-causing chemicals from cosmetics.  Keep reading to find out more about this campaign!


"The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics found cancer-causing chemicals in a number of cosmetics made by Procter & Gamble (P&G), including their Cover Girl blushes, mascara and eye shadows, Olay anti-aging creams, Max Factor mascara, and more.

Even P&G’s Pantene Beautiful Lengths Finishing Crème – which is marketed with a pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness – contains a chemical linked to cancer!

Carcinogens have no place in anyone’s beauty routine.  Even low levels of cancer chemicals add up to real harm when they are found in products used every day, from shampoos and other hair products, creams, blushes, and nail polish.

P&G can and already does make personal care products without toxic chemicals linked to cancer.  P&G can become a leader and a true champion for women’s health by making cosmetics without cancer the new industry standard."


Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is a broad-based coalition, housed at the Breast Cancer Fund, working to clean up the beauty aisle through public advocacy and market campaigns designed to eliminate dangerous chemicals linked to cancer, 
reproductive harm and other adverse health impacts from cosmetics and personal care products.

Please, take a minute of your time to tell P&G to remove cancer-causing chemicals from cosmetics!  Take action!
