Don’t you hate when cosmetic companies don’t list their ingredients online?

We recently wrote about the new proposed cosmetic legislation . While anything we can do to ensure the safety of cosmetics is a good thing it’s also important to avoid over-regulation which increases the size of government (sometimes unnecessarily) and also can burden businesses.

Having said that, we wholeheartedly agree with the three major cosmetic industry representatives who have said that this legislation will be a good thing, if done properly.

One piece of the act that we are very excited about is that it will require all vendors selling cosmetics online to list ingredients. It looks like that’s intended to not only cover the cosmetic manufacturers themselves but also the vending sites like Amazon.com, Drugstore.com, et cetera. This is great because one of our pet peeves is that many, many, many, companies do not provide access to their ingredient list online.

In fact we’ve already started a thread in our forum where we’re listing companies that don’t provide ingredient lists online . It might be helpful to continue this list even if and when the new law passes to ensure that cosmetic companies and retail online retailers comply.

Just bookmark the link and anytime you come across a website that doesn’t provide an ingredient list for product you’re shopping, for add that link to our Forum thread.
