This might sound like the premise for a terrible straight-to-DVD movie, but it’s true. Kourtney Kardashian headed to Washington D.C. to speak out for cosmetic formulation reform. According to The Hill, the 39-year-old mother of three joined Rep, Frank Pauline Jr.of New Jersey and Ken Cook of the Environmental Working Group (EWG) in a hearing on Tuesday asking for a much-needed update in the national laws that regulate the production of cosmetics.
According to Rep. Pauline, who serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, current FDA regulations on cosmetics are “obsolete,” having been enacted under the original Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act of 1938. He says that this is “unacceptable” and that legislation is needed “to ensure cosmetics are safe for the American people.”
