The U.S. Food & Drug Administration is trying to draft a law that would put small, independent cosmetics and personal care manufacturers out of business by forcing them to pay outrageous registration fees (up to $12,000 per year) and comply with burdensome paperwork. A lot of these small businesses help keep their owners at home with their children. Big cosmetic companies like Carol’s Daughter and Burt’s Bees started out small and would not have survived had this legislation existed when they first started. So this legislation will basically hinder potentially successful businesses. Please take the time out to sign the petition to help support businesses like j.blossom and co, Shea Radiance, Bee Simple, and Wild Woozle Soap Company.
