Cosmetics and personal care products can contain harmful endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and other substances of concern, but their labels can be hard to read. The infographic launched by the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) and Tegengif/Erase All Toxins today uncovers the story behind chemicals in cosmetics.
On 17 April 2018, HEAL sent a letter to the Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz ahead of Austria’s upcoming presidency of the Council of the European Union from July 2018 on. We encouraged this member state to show leadership to advance on a safe environment that benefits people’s health and an adequate allocation of resources to climate and environment measures.
On 2 May 2018, we received the response from the Director General for Coordination, responsible for EU matters and the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
