Beautycounter Endorses the Natural Cosmetics Act

Clean beauty cosmetics company Beautycounter continues to push for cleaner manufacturing standards by officially endorsing the Natural Cosmetics Act.

Representatives Sean Patrick Maloney and Grace Meng introduced the bill to Congress in order to set stronger standards to protect consumers and to hold companies accountable for the information displayed on labels. This is the first legislation introduced in the United States that sets regulations for the use of the words "natural" and "naturally derived" on personal care products.
