    I thought yoiu were going to say that this will cause even more torure of animals for testing? Why “ecoFriendly” rarely means “animal friendly”? Can we focus more on actual living beings that are being killed everyday and not just humans and environment?

    I’m sorry but I respectfully disagree. I am a small business owner; a supplier of natural ingredients imported directly from the producers all over the world. It is IMPOSSIBLE for me to demand that these producer supply all the information mandated in this act; but as a supplier I am mandated to provide it. Now, I know which of my products carry some risk if used unwisely, and I always provide full information about their safe and appropriate use; but this is not enough to meet the standards of this bill.

    People are ending up in the hospital from eating salads…have you ever heard of anyone being hospitalized from the cosmetics they chose? Perhaps the FDA’s limited time and funding should be better spent finding and eliminating the dangers in our food chain rather than chasing nonissues.
