Researchers at the Environmental Working Group found that most cosmetic and personal care products contain potentially dangerous chemicals.
Johnson & Johnson ‘the health care giant’ plans to remove potentially cancer-causing and other dangerous chemicals from almost all of it’s adult toiletries and cosmetic products within 3 1/2 years.
The company’s baby products, including: ‘No More Tears’ baby shampoo, J&J baby lotion, bath products and Desitin are on track to have safer ingredients by the end of 2013.
Johnson & Johnson’s adult products, including: Aveeno, Neutrogena, RoC, Clean & Clear and Lubriderm, will have safer ingredients by the end of 2015.
Susan Nettesheim, VP of product stewardship and toxicology for J&J consumer health brands said, “We want people to have complete peace of mind when they use our products.”
In May of 2009, The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics began pushing Johnson & Johnson to remove harsh and toxic chemicals from its products. Lisa Archer, the campaign’s national director said, “This is a good step in the right direction, in terms of the cosmetic giants, Johnson & Johnson is going the furthest of any of them in removing chemicals of concern.”
