Shine some light on the business of beauty!
Require that products -- like fragarnces and other cosmetics -- which are
released to market without being substantiated for safety
carry your consumer alert:
'WARNING: The safety of this product has not been determined.'
9/29/03: The FDA has officially begun
"Preliminary scientific reviews of the petition."
Remember, fragrances are derived from petrochemicals
and enter the bodies of users and nonusers through
absorption and inhalation. Provide a public record. Inform the FDA!
Please write, fax or e-mail the FDA in support of EHN's FDA Citizens' Petition, 99P-1340. Check the analyses. More than just phthaltes were found. See how much is NOT known about all of the chemicals used.
Enter Docket Number 99P-1340 on your subject line.

The New Reactor is in hiatus. VERY SORRY about this. If 'FRAGRANCE-FREE" events could be just that, maybe my health and the health of others involved would hold. But, of course, fragrance-FREE calls for the co-operation and kindness of strangers. -- barb

EHN's site is deliberately kept "fancy-free" so our EI/MCS community members can more easily use it ... and I can more easily handle the workload.
For those of you who feel you must see credentials before believing what you see on a website: I'm a wife, mother, grandmother and formerly gainfully employed. I earned an AA, while working and raising three kids. I understand that an AA in this day and age means little, but it means a lot to me. My favorite studies included Political Science and Anthropology.
When I was forced into early retirement, I vowed to make as much good information available to the public as was humanly possible for me. . . .

(Counter installed, end of day, 2/28/99
Please note, FastCounter had many problems near the end of 1999 and into early 2000.
Our count had reached the 5,000 count, and dropped back 1,000 and 2,000 hits repeatedly
the last quarter of 1999. FASTCOUNTER has been working fine since spring 2000. However, the
current total is far under what it should read. -- barb)
