At least one lobby group is trying to make it happen, according to CosmeticsDesign.com:
A Canadian lobby group has called on Health Canada to make labeling phthalates a requirement on personal care products in response to a study linking baby care products to the chemical’s concentration in infant urine.
The British Columbia-based Labour Environmental Alliance Society (LEAS) states that phthalates should be included on the ingredients list of personal care products so that consumers can make an informed choice…
Under current US and Canadian law manufacturers are not required to label the presence of phthalates in their products.
Furthermore, certain compounds that have been banned from appearing in consumer products by the European Union are not prohibited in North America.
The LEAS are calling for the labeling of the compounds to be mandatory and for Canada to follow Europe’s lead in regulating the use of phthalates in consumer products.
