LEGISLATIVE SAMPLE LETTER

Dear ______________:

As one of millions of American women who use cosmetics every day, I am very concerned about the health risks they pose. Hundreds of synthetic chemicals are routinely included in everything from shampoo to eyeshadow, many of which are known carcinogens, neurotoxins and endocrine disruptors. These substances are not only a threat to human health, but to the environment as well. The appalling lack of regulation governing the cosmetic industry prevents the Federal Food and Drug Administration from properly protecting consumers from the cumulative long-term dangers of cosmetic use.

On behalf of all women, I hope you will address this issue.

Sincerely,

Your Name
