WASHINGTON — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and L’Oréal said Monday they will collaborate on a $1.2 million research project funded by the cosmetic giant that is aimed at testing 20 chemicals critical in manufacturing cosmetic products in order to create alternatives to traditional animal-based toxicity tests.
The new research project, unveiled at a news conference at the annual Society of Toxicology meeting in San Francisco, follows an initial smaller collaboration the EPA did with L’Oréal in 2007 and is directed at the potential impact chemicals have on processes in the human body that lead to adverse health effects, said Jared Blumenfeld, EPA administrator for the Pacific Southwest.
