Muses Founder, Susan Rockefeller, and MADE SAFE Executive Director and Founder, Amy Ziff, have been engaged in a conversation over ingredients, the search for pure products and the need for integrity in manufacturing for years. As an advisor to MADE SAFE, Sue understands more than most the impact that brands can have by acting as changemakers and catalysts for a better future. She also knows firsthand how products can be part of protecting and preserving our entire ecosystem rather than the cause of harm.
On February 9th, the New York Times published an article on cosmetics safety written by their Editorial Board – representing the opinions of the board, its editor and the publisher. The piece aptly noted that there is a problem in the U.S. with harmful ingredients in cosmetics products. For any of my followers, this news is certainly not new, but it’s nice to see mainstream attention to an issue I’m so passionate about. The board argued for strong legislation in response to the problem, and said it’s the only response.
