Hi, everyone! Things are really heating up at the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics as we’re keeping up the pressure on Avon to kiss toxics goodbye! 

We need your help. As you know, many Avon products contain ingredients like parabens, triclosan, and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives that have been linked to breast cancer, hormone disruption, and other serious diseases. On May 2nd, Avon shareholders will meet to decide whether to make a real commitment to safe cosmetics. There is a shareholder resolution on the ballot calling for the company to substitute safer ingredients in their personal care products.

 We may not own shares of Avon stock, but we have a real stake in the outcome of this vote! That’s why we’re sending in our own ballots voting for safer products they sell to kids, teens, women and men.

Here’s what you can do:

  • Take action by casting your vote for safer Avon products with this mail-in ballot form

  • Gather signatures around the office and in the community with this petition

  • Do you have public events coming up? Take ballots with you and have others cast their vote too!

 Let me know if you'll be able to help us get Avon to clean up its act. Together, we can get this cosmetics giant to take our health seriously!

 Thanks for all that you’re doing.

 All the best,
