Reality star Kourtney Kardashian has visited congress in Washington in order to discuss the need for the reform of outdated federal cosmetic regulations.
Having teamed up with the Environmental Working Group, Kardashian’s visit to congress falls alongside the launch of her Kourt x Kylie new make-up like under the Kylie Cosmetics label.
Kardashian is lending her voice in support of the Personal Care Products Safety Act, which was introduced in 2015 to push for new health and safety standards for cosmetics and other personal care products, as well as allowing the FDA to regularly review and monitor the industry.
Rep. Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ), has joined Kardashian on the visit, who has previously stated, “While all other product categories regulated by the agency have been updated to keep pace with innovation and consumer expectations, the laws for cosmetics have been left untouched for nearly 80 years.
“That is simply unacceptable, and we really should be taking this opportunity to consider legislation to give FDA the authority and the resources to ensure cosmetics are safe for the American people.”
