Beyond Coastal Named a “Champion” by the Campaign For Safe Cosmetics

Posted on: Jan 15 2013

Beyond Coastal is proud to be one of 322 cosmetics companies named a "Champion" by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is a national coalition of more than 170 nonprofit health, environmental, and women's organizations with a mission to protect the health of consumers and the environment. Key partners include the Breast Cancer Fund, the Environmental Working Group, and Friends of the Earth.

In a report released in August 2011, the campaign recognized leaders in the cosmetics industry committed to making safe, non-toxic products. Out of 1,500 signature companies to the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, 322 were given the highest-level recognition of "Champions" based on data gathered between 2004 and 2011. Champions set a high standard for personal care products by:

Making effective products without using ingredients prohibited for use in cosmetics in other countries and around the world.
Disclosing all ingredients used in our formulas and not using blanket terms like "fragrance" and showing that we use safe ingredients
Working with nonprofit health groups to increase demand for safe, sustainable products and practices.
Beyond Coastal believes in making sun care products that exceed the current U.S. safety standards and meet growing demand for natural and safe sunscreen.
