Dear 5849376,

L'Oréal: Remove carcinogens

It's hypocrisy in action: L'Oréal, the multinational cosmetic conglomerate, is promoting its contributions to the fight against ovarian cancer at the same time that it sells products containing toxic chemicals linked to cancer.

Across L'Oréal's many brands, products like eye makeup, nail polish, and hair products (including kids' shampoo) contain cancer-causing chemicals.1

Reducing our daily exposure to carcinogens is a major way to protect our health and fight cancer. L'Oréal needs to get the message that it's time to remove carcinogens from its products. Click here to sign the petition.

Our friends at the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics reviewed the scientific literature and found a host of carcinogens, formaldehyde releasers and contaminants in products sold under the L'Oréal, Maybelline, and Garnier brands - all owned by L'Oréal. They've cross-referenced this research with authoritative bodies including the California Proposition 65 list of chemicals linked to cancer, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, and the National Toxicology Program.2,3

Safer alternatives exist for the carcinogens in L'Oréal's products, and some companies, including Johnson & Johnson, have agreed to remove some chemicals of concern. If an industry leader like L'Oréal makes the decision to go carcinogen-free, it will help move the rest of the industry, removing a huge source of daily exposure to cancer-causing chemicals.

It's time for L'Oréal to stop putting our health at risk by selling products with cancer-causing chemicals. Click the link below to sign the petition:

Thanks for helping hold L'Oréal accountable for its customers' health.
