Groups Refuse to Withdraw Claim That Revlon Make-up Has Cancer-Causing Chemicals (Ecowatch, 11/4/2013)


Revlon is under the gun as women’s and breast cancer groups join forces to demand that the cosmetics giant stop putting cancer-causing chemicals in personal care products.

In October, Revlon’s general counsel sent a cease-and-desist letter to Ultraviolet and the Breast Cancer Fund after the groups launched a petition that mobilized over 45,000 people to demand Revlon immediately stop using cancer-causing chemicals in its makeup and hair dye products. 

Breast Cancer Fund Director of Program and Policy Janet Nudelman was quoted in an Ecowatch article about the action:  

“Here’s our message to Revlon: No amount of bullying is going to make us stop advocating on behalf of the millions of people who want and deserve safe cosmetics. Step up and become a leader by taking dangerous chemicals that harm women’s health out of your makeup and hair dyes.”
