A new report warns that cosmetics and personal care products companies ignoring potential health hazards may suffer financial consequences. The report, entitled “Beneath the Skin: Hidden Liabilities, Market Risk and Drivers of Change in the Cosmetics and Personal Care Products Industry,” details “a convergence of forces” with significant implications for investors: increasing global regulatory pressure (e.g. tightening regulations in Europe and elsewhere), shareholder pressure on retailers (e.g. resolutions this year with CVS and Bed, Bath & Beyond), emerging science on health concerns (such as phthalates, parabens, formaldehyde and nanoparticles), and growing consumer sensitivity. The report says that cosmetics industry self-policing in the US opens companies to more of these risks. The report is from the Investor Environmental Health Network, a collaboration of 20 investment organizations representing $22 billion in assets, encouraging companies to adopt “safer chemicals” policies for consumer products.
