Revlon Removes Some Dangerous Chemicals From Its Products

For all you ladies out there.

TIME

Cosmetics giant Revlon announced Thursday that two long-chain parabens and a formaldehyde-releasing chemical would no longer be used as ingredients in its products, in a move that was applauded by environmental and health advocates.

Long-chain parabens have been linked to endocrine disruption, while formaldehyde may cause cancer.

Revlon was responding to a petition demanding the change signed by more than 100,000 people. The petition was organized by the non-partisan nonprofit Environmental Working Group.

Two long-chain parabens (isobutylparaben and isopropylparaben) have now been removed from Revlon cosmetics, as has DMDM hydantoin, which releases formaldehyde. Revlon is also reformatting a product that contained butylparaben.

“We are pleased that Revlon has acted to remove these toxic ingredients,” Environmental Working Group Executive Director Heather White said in a statement. “We urge all companies to do the same.”
