Do You Know What Is In Your Cosmetics, Hair Care, & Other Personal Care Products?
Personal care products are largely unregulated and many of the items you use every day contain toxic chemicals. Everyone is at risk, but women of color face the greatest exposure from the products that are marketed to them.
To ensure our community is aware of the risks posed by the chemicals commonly found in these products, WE ACT has partnered with Columbia’s NIEHS Center for Environmental Health and the Columbia Center for Children’s Environmental Health to bring you a community briefing on cosmetics and other personal care products.
Our goal is to raise awareness of the serious health hazards people face when using these products as well as to provide suggestions on how you can minimize those risks.
This FREE event will be held at The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, which is located at 515 Malcolm X Boulevard (at 135th Street), from 5:30-8:00 PM on Wednesday, January 16th. Light refreshments will be served, but space is limited so please RSVP. Seating will be first-come, first-served.
