Kourtney Kardashian meets with Congress leaders to fight for 'clean' make-up law

Kourtney Kardashian meets with Congress leaders to fight for 'clean' make-up law

As for the ingredients in sisters Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian West's makeup lines, Kourtney side stepped from commenting too specifically on that.

As it stands, the law requires that cosmetic companies make products that are safe to the consumer for its intended use, but it doesn't require companies to provide proof of safety testing nor can the authority request data on customer safety reports.

She also said, "My friend Sarah sends me lists sometimes, she just sent me one recently with 15 risky ingredients, which I forwarded to everyone involved in Kardashian Beauty to make sure that none of the ingredients were in our products". The eldest Kardashian sister made an appearance before the United States Congress on Capitol Hill to discuss cosmetics reform alongside New Jersey Senator Frank Pallone Jr., who has been calling for new rules to regulate the ingredients in make-up and personal care products.

"When I had my first son, I started really learning so much about the foods that I was feeding him and it just kind of all snowballed".

"I remember learning from my mom friends that these were not healthy at all".

"I was thinking about it this morning", she continued.

The reality star joined the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a nonprofit health and environmental advocacy organization, on Tuesday in a brief with lawmakers about federal regulations in the cosmetic industry.

"The fact that we have to guess so much and, you know, even going into a store to buy anything like you shouldn't be like walking around aimlessly like is this okay?" Is this not OK?,' " Kourtney shared. "Everybody should have the right to healthy products. While all other product categories regulated by the agency have been updated to keep pace with innovation and consumer expectations, the laws for cosmetics have been left untouched for almost 80 years", he said at a subcommittee hearing in January. "Being a mom, I have become really invested in that - I just feel like once I know something, I can't go backwards and pretend like I don't know it".
