What is inside a cosmetic made clear

A lack of product ingredient information is a very common problem with cosmetics products. Fortunately, the situation is improving.

In the past few years, several companies have taken action to make product information more transparent to consumers, including the sharing of ingredients online. Walmart is one of these companies.

As outlined in its Sustainable Chemistry Policy, Walmart has started an effort to list the ingredients contained within its private label consumable products – personal care and household products such as aftershave, baby lotions, cleaners, or pet shampoo – on walmart.com. Walmart’s policy also asks national brand suppliers like Procter and Gamble, Revlon and Pro-Sense, to follow this lead and include product ingredient information on their own websites.
