Embracing Progress: The Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act

Did you know that the beauty industry has been operating without comprehensive regulation in nearly 85 years? It's time for a change!

On April 27, 2022, I was standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial listening to a rabble-rousing speech from our Founder, Gregg Renfrew. It was our national lobbying day where I represented the State of Minnesota, and together with fellow brand advocates, we collectively held over 60 meetings with Congress and their staff. Our hearts were full of passion and our minds were overloaded with peer-reviewed research. We shared our stories and asked for legislative support.

What we didn't know one year ago was that we would be the women who helped pass the first federal cosmetic reform law since the FDR signed the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act on 25 June 1938. How incredible is that? I still get goosebumps just thinking about it.


What is MoCRA?

Simply put, the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act is a groundbreaking step towards a cleaner, safer beauty industry.

As a mother of two daughters and advocate for clean living, I am thrilled to see this long-overdue update and am deeply honored to have been part of its approval. This package aims to enhance the safety and transparency of cosmetics, ensuring that the products we use on our skin and bodies align with our health and ethical values.

With this legislation, we're paving the way for stricter ingredient regulations, rigorous testing protocols, and increased transparency in labeling. Buh-bye, harmful chemicals and vague marketing claims!

Through the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act, we're prioritizing our well-being and empowering consumers to make informed choices about the products they bring into their lives.

Join me in raising up beauty and celebrating this pivotal moment in the beauty industry's history. Together, we can create a future where clean beauty is the standard, not the exception.
