Truth Teller is highlighting the following legislation for SUPPORT on POPVOX.
H.R. 2359 – SAFE COSMETICS ACT OF 2011
Your direct action link is included
I would like to point out to everyone that at this time, the higher percentage of users regarding this bill are opposing it. It appears to be people who are more concerned with money then they are with our health and the health of the consumers they are selling products to.
I would also like to make not that in the past couple of days, a report was released naming over 400 brand name lipsticks that contain LEAD in them.
Please understand that this bill does not just relate to what we as cosmetics, It also includes our soaps, body lotions, hair products, etc.
This is legislation that ALL of us need to be supporting male and female alike.
