Elemental Herbs Crowned ‘Champion’ by Campaign for Safe Cosmetics

“We are the champions! We are the champions!” Well, really, we are just one of 321 champions but we still can’t get that darn Queen song out of our heads.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics’ recent Market Shift report has bestowed Elemental Herbs with “Champion” status, indicating that we are one of hundreds of cosmetic and personal care companies that has met the goals of the Compact for Safe Cosmetics.

The Compact for Safe Cosmetics is a voluntary pledge to avoid chemicals that are banned in other countries, to avoid harmful ingredients whenever possible and to fully disclose product ingredients to help consumers make educated choices about what they put in and on their bodies.

According to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics’ website, more than 1,500 companies signed the Compact between 2004 until 2011 when The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics closed the Compact. The research team at Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database developed tools for tracking each company’s compliance with the goals of the Compact. These tools were used to determine the 321 “Champion” companies. Another 111 companies were given the titles of “Innovators,” indicating that they have made significant progress toward those goals.

This is fabulous for you, the consumer. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is working with the cosmetics industry and lawmakers to pass the Safe Cosmetics Act, which would make it illegal to sell products made with the hazardous chemicals that are currently prevalent in conventional personal care products.
