California Safe Cosmetics Program now in place!

Cosmetics on White Background

The California Safe Cosmetics Act (the Act) requires companies that manufacture cosmetics to report any cosmetics products that contain ingredients known or suspected to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. The California Safe Cosmetics Program (CSCP) collects this data and makes it available to the public through this website.

Are you curious to see what ingredients have been reported for your shampoo? Want to compare the ingredients of different sunscreens? You can search the database for a type of product; a specific product name; or a brand or company name.

You can also read more about chemical ingredients, learn about how chemical exposure can affect your health, or learn more about the California Safe Cosmetics Program by clicking on links to the right.

More information on the California Safe Cosmetics Act, cosmetics in the news, and links to other government agencies overseeing cosmetics are also available through the California Safe Cosmetics Program website.

In Health and Happiness
