What is the California Safe Cosmetics Program Public Database?
The California Safe Cosmetics Act (the Act) requires companies that
manufacture cosmetics to report any cosmetics products that contain
ingredients known or suspected to cause cancer, birth defects, or other
reproductive harm. The California Safe Cosmetics Program (CSCP) collects
this data and makes it available to the public through this website.
Are you curious to see what ingredients have been reported for your
shampoo? Want to compare the ingredients of different sunscreens? You
can search the database for a type of product; a specific product name; or a brand or company name.
You can also read more about chemical ingredients, learn about how
chemical exposure can affect your health, or learn more about the

More information on the California Safe Cosmetics Act, cosmetics in the
news, and links to other government agencies overseeing cosmetics are
also available through the California Safe Cosmetics Program website.
