  Report to expose cosmetics products.

Monday 17 June 2002
A report by America’s Environmental Working Group, due to be released this week, is set to reveal the startling amount of dangerous chemicals used in everyday brand-name cosmetic products. The tests which contributed to the report, carried out on a number of women, discovered high levels of phthalates which can damage the liver, kidneys and lungs. An image shattering television and newspaper campaign will begin next week in the US explaining the dangers and listing the products tested. Changes in the regulations of cosmetics production are already underway by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Panel in Washington. Significant alterations will almost certainly be employed in Europe and the rest of the world.
