Colorado may ban carcinogen or reprotoxic ingredients

In the wake of the California Safe Cosmetics Act and the prohibition of CMR substances in cosmetics sold in the European Union, a bill was introduced earlier this month to the Senate and the House of Colorado to ban ingredients “causing cancer or reproductive toxicity” from cosmetics fomulations.

The bill is sponsored by Senator Betty Boyd and Representative Dianne Primavera and a coalition of consumers and environmental groups such as Colorado Women’s Lobby, American College of Nurse Midwives-Colorado, Aurora Nova Clean, and Water Action Colorado, Children’s Campaign, or Colorado Environmental Coalition, and Environment Colorado, as well as some cosmetics makers (Lemon Grass Spa, Lily Organics, Annae Geoceutical Skin Care, Elegant Minerals).

If passed, the bill would create the Colorado Safe Personal Care Products Act and would prohibit a manufacturer from knowingly selling, offering for sale, or distributing for sale or use in Colorado on and after September 1, 2011, any personal care product that contains a chemical identified as causing cancer or reproductive toxicity.

When the Victoria’s Secret show was cancelled it didn’t come as a surprise. In May, it was reported by The New York Times that the show would no longer be broadcast on network television. “We must evolve and change to grow.
