At the recent Sustainable Cosmetics Summit in New York, we got a chance to sit down with Stacy Malkan, Co-Founder of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and the author of “Not Just a Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry”. She was a keynote speaker at the event and also gave a great talk about industry regulations and policy falling short of what the new “eco-conscious consumer” is demanding from cosmetics companies.
Stacy emphasized the importance of health when engaging in dialogues about sustainability. As she said in her opening keynote, “the environment is our bodies, our children and our health.” We couldn’t agree more and we urge you to check out her website and look into the types of products you’re putting on your body, in addition to the foods you put in your body!
