Whip out your virtual pens…it’s time to save small business and defend indie beauty!
July 30, 2010
As I mentioned a few days ago, a poorly crafted piece of legislation introduced by Congress last week will limit your choice on the cosmetics aisle, shutter thousands of independent beauty companies and cost tens of thousands of Americans their jobs, all under the banner of providing “safer” cosmetics. Unfortunately, your cosmetics won’t be safer, your ingredient lists will read like a copy of War and Peace, you’ll have to wade through thousands of listed “contaminants” (in parts per billion) to find out what’s REALLY in your bottle of shampoo, and many of your favorite cosmetics companies (including Bella Luccè!) will go the way of the dinosaur. Please, please, please- take a stand for small business AND safe cosmetics. The two are not mutually exclusive and you can show your support for indie beauty companies nationwide with a quick click over to sign the petition against HR5786. Please take a stand today!
This is an excellent blog post about how the passage of this bill will negatively impact consumers…please take a few moments to read it!
