WASHINGTON — Lawmakers and consumer advocacy groups squared off with the cosmetics industry’s main trade and lobbying group this week over new legislation aimed at toughening safety standards for ingredients and imposing strict new industry testing and labeling requirements.
Reps. Jan Schakowsky (D., Ill.), Ed Markey (D., Mass.) and Tammy Baldwin (D., Wis.) unveiled the “Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010” on Tuesday night, calling for an end to what they claim is a highly unregulated industry that relies on self-policing, calling for stronger authority for the Food and Drug Administration and new standards and testing for hazardous ingredients and chemicals in cosmetics and personal care products.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
