Have your say on the revision of the EU Cosmetic Products Regulation by 21 June 2022

The European Commission has opened a public consultation, available in all official EU languages, to gather views on how the EU Cosmetic Products Regulation can be improved to better protect human health from harmful chemicals.

Cosmetics and other personal care products can contain many different chemical substances of concern, including harmful endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). Research shows that chronic exposure to even low doses of EDCs can contribute to numerous health disorders, including infertility and reproduction disorders, breast cancer, and impaired child brain and nervous system development.

EDC-Free Europe campaigners highlight the public consultation is an important opportunity for citizens to urge the EU Commission to take swift and ambitious action to ban EDCs in cosmetics. Visit our latest blog post to learn more.
You have until 21 June 2022 to take part in the public consultation and to say no to harmful endocrine disruptors in cosmetics.
