A force to be reckoned with in the cosmetics safety movement, Stacy Malkan is author of Not Just a Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry
and cofounder of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics—a consumer-safety advocacy group uniting hundreds of nonprofits and natural beauty companies for a safer beauty industry.
Malkan's research and advocacy efforts have helped prompt mass manufacturers such as Johnson & Johnson to reformulate and government to consider updated cosmetics legislation. Today, she continues to support the natural beauty industry as an (extremely) informed consumer.
“The natural beauty industry is a great model for a healthier economy; small and independent beauty companies are the ones innovating the safest and best products,” she said. “As a consumer, I can choose to support these companies that I can get to know and trust.”
Malkan most recently took her passion for environmental health to the non-GMO movement, serving as director for the California Right to Know Campaign.
