Storify: Chemicals linked to cancer don’t belong in L’Oreal cosmetics


After more than 100,000 people signed a petition calling on L’Oreal to make safer products, the company responded with charges of a “misinformation campaign.”

The Breast Cancer Fund and Campaign for Safe Cosmetics Director of Science Sharima Rasanayagam, Ph.D countered:

“The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics stands on very firm ground regarding its identification of chemicals in L’Oreal cosmetics products designated as possible, probable and known human carcinogens by well-respected, scientific authoritative bodies including the National Toxicology Program, Prop 65 and the International Agency for Research on Cancer. There’s no misinformation here.”
