Campaigning for change article written on the 22 Jul 2010

The people behind the amazing Story of Stuff have teamed up with the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics to produce another animated documentary – The Story of Cosmetics.

The Story of Cosmetics employs the Story of Stuff style to examine the pervasive use of toxic chemicals in everyday personal care products, from lipstick to baby shampoo. The film will explore the health implications for consumers, workers, and the environment, and show how we can move the industry away from hazardous chemicals and toward safer alternatives.

The Story of Cosmetics is co-produced with the trailblazing environmental health activists at the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. The release will support the introduction of groundbreaking national legislation to regulate personal care product ingredients.
