Petition to Oppose HR 5786: The Safe Cosmetics Act

In the last couple of posts we've shared information and links with you regarding The Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010. Today we encourage you to take action!

Whether you currently have a business in the Handcrafted Industry, are considering one in the future, or simply a consumer who enjoys buying handcrafted products from small businesses, this will affect you.

If you oppose this draft legislation as written, please take the time to write your Representative explaining how this bill will affect you.

Oppose HR 5786: Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010

We hope you will join us in supporting businesses in the Handcrafted Industry by voicing your opinion.

Thank you!


  1. Yay!!! Another Opposer!! Thanks for your efforts! I posted the link to the petition yesterday on my FB page and Twitter. Keep it going!! :)My natural soap business will not survive if this legislation goes through. This bill hurts the very businesses that provide alternatives to the hazardous chemical-rich products available in grocery stores. We need to ban together to stand against this horrid legislation.

  2. Thank you for supporting the Indies in our cause to educate and explain why this well-intended bill is too draconian for the cosmetic industry. Making cosmetics more regulated than food is not the answer to America's cancer issues and I appreciate your support.

    There is still time to change this proposed bill. It is not even into committee yet and the Senate bill has not yet been introduced so now is the time to educate and get this agenda changed ... now.
