No More Tears: Johnson & Johnson Cleans Up Its Act and Removes Carcinogens

E-mail Print PDF

Prompted by growing concerns raised by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, Johnson & Johnson makers of Aveeno, Neutrogena, and Johnson’s Baby Shampoo, announced today that it will be removing carcinogens and other toxic chemicals from its baby and adult products globally.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a national coalition of more than 175 nonprofit organizations working to protect the health of consumers and workers by eliminating dangerous chemicals from cosmetics, is led by the Breast Cancer Fund, Clean Water Action, Commonweal, Environmental Working Group, Friends of the Earth and Women’s Voices for the Earth.

The coalition will launch a national campaign this week challenging L’Oreal (Maybelline, Garnier, Kiehl’s, The Body Shop, Softsheen-Carson), Procter & Gamble (CoverGirl, Pantene, Secret, Old Spice), Estee Lauder (Clinique, MAC, Prescriptives), Avon, and Unilever (Dove, Ponds, St. Ives, Axe) to follow J&J’s lead and commit to removing carcinogens and other harmful chemicals from cosmetics and specify a timeline for removal.

TVNL Comment: Gee, isn't it nice of them them to take cancer causing chemicals out of their products after selling them to us for all these years? Isn't it nice that our government allows the sale of known cancer causing chemicals in so many products? So tell me again...who are the real terrorists? Who are the people who pose the real threats to us?
