The manufacturers of Brazilian Blowout must stop deceiving salons about the danger of their products, thanks to a settlement with the California Attorney General. The lawsuit was filed under the authority of the law we helped pass in 2005, the California Safe Cosmetics Act – so this is a true victory for safe cosmetics advocacy! Now, Brazilian Blowout products will carry warning stickers and salons will finally get accurate information about the health risks of using them. But, these dangerous products are still on the shelves, and salon workers and their customers are still being exposed every day to a known human carcinogen.
We need your help today to protect salon workers and women who get their hair straightened from these harmful toxic exposures! Please join us in asking the FDA to follow through on its August 2011 warning to Brazilian Blowout, which stated that the products are “adulterated” and "misbranded" and therefore subject to seizure. Current law doesn’t give the FDA much power, but it does give them the authority to seize cosmetic products that are unsafe or injurious to users.
Brazilian Blowout products have been banned in many countries, and now it’s time for FDA to get these dangerous products off American shelves, too. Just personalize the message below and we'll deliver it to Michael W. Roosevelt, Acting Director of the FDA's Office of Compliance for the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.
