“Dare to be Revlon.” That’s Revlon’s motto.
But with all the chemicals linked to cancer and other serious health concerns in Revlon products, no woman should take that dare. To make things worse, Revlon—one of the biggest cosmetics manufacturers in the world—is running ads promoting its support of breast cancer awareness. Do you smell the scent of irony? Do you see the glimmering shades of hypocrisy?
The Breast Cancer Fund and the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics teamed up with online women’s group UltraViolet to demand the company drop these and other dangerous chemicals from its products.
While Revlon continues to use toxic chemicals, industry leaders are moving toward safer cosmetics. Thanks to our collective efforts, in just the past two years, Johnson & Johnson and Procter & Gamble agreed to reformulate their personal care products to remove certain toxic chemicals. And Walmart and Target are taking steps to help keep dangerous chemicals off their shelves. Now it’s time for Revlon to move.
This Breast Cancer Awareness Month, tell Revlon that if it really cares about cancer—and if it dares to take credit for helping women with cancer—it’s time to come clean and remove toxic chemicals from its products.
