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.
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) published its draft Strategic Plan 2019-2023 in March 2018. It is meant to guide the general and operational activities of the organisation. The Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) collaborates with other public interest organisations in the European Chemicals Agency’s committees and its flagship REACH fora, and works to promote coherence in the intersection of REACH with other relevant EU and international legislation. In this light, HEAL submitted a response to the public consultation on ECHA’s draft Strategic Plan.
