Georgia Charms Cosmetics Product Reviews 

Company: Georgia Charms Handmade Cosmetics  

“Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, Bath Bombs, Bubble Bars and More”

“I believe in the therapy of natural cosmetics. Sometimes all you need to turn your day into a happy one is a hot bath, a beautiful bath bomb, and a good book. I love providing people with things that they will enjoy and brighten their day. Enjoy the little things in life!”

Products:

Mother of Unicorns 40 oz. XXXL Bath Bomb – $15.00 USD

Rose Glow Pearl Priming and Setting Mist (2.7 oz. – $12.00 USD)

Cool As A Cucumber Facial Toner (2.7 oz – $7.95 USD)

Reviews:

Let’s just jump right in and talk about the GIANT BATH BOMB in the room! The Mother of Unicorns 40 oz. XXXL Bath Bomb is everything you could ever want in a bath bomb… just a lot more of it! Everything from the sweet strawberry fragrance, the bright pink, yellow, and blue colors to the biodegradable glitter is absolutely fantastic! Not gonna lie, I had a hard time waiting to take pictures of this. I just wanted to throw it in the tub to watch what happens! To put the size of this Mother of Unicorns Bath Bomb into perspective, a Lush bath bomb is 6.3 ounces. This bad boy is over 6 times as big! Now that is a big mother (of Unicorns)!

Once I dropped this gigantic bath bomb into the tub, it fizzed and danced around for over 2 minutes! It swirled the beautiful pink, yellow, and blue colors to create the bathtub masterpiece you see above! See the “V” for vegan?! Once the bubbles disappeared you’re left with gorgeous amethyst colored water that I just didn’t want to put down the drain! I do have to note that my bathtub was stained a bright magenta color which required me to scrub it with bleach. It’s a good idea to clean your tub after each use, so it wasn’t too big of a deal. Totally worth it!


The Rose Glow Pearl Priming and Setting Mist is another super unique product from Georgia Charms. It’s a primer and setting spray made with homemade rose water and aloe vera juice to hydrate and nourish the skin, witch hazel to purify, and natural mica to give ya some shimmer! It has a light, natural, powdery rose fragrance and the shimmer is a golden tone that makes tanned summer skin and pretty much all skin tones look GORGEOUS!
This spray is not shy with the shimmer, so 1-2 sprays is all you need. Unless of course, you want to look like a Golden Globe Award, which is cool, too. I did have a few instances where the pump got stuck, and when I tried again, I got a ton of product on me. So, I suggest giving it a practice pump, then spraying it onto your face. This product really does give your skin a nice and summery glow while giving it a kiss of hydration. I sprayed it on my collar bones and arms to look like the mermaid I was born to be, because why the heck not?


The Cool as A Cucumber Soothing Facial Toner is a nice and refreshing treat for ya skin! Aloe vera and witch hazel hydrate your pretty little face while cucumber extract cools and calms. This is perfect for hot summer days and nights when you don’t want to use a heavy moisturizer but still want a little something on your skin. The fine mist smells of fresh cucumbers and quickly absorbs into the skin, making it the perfect for using under your makeup or moisturizer.

The Bottom Line

The Mother of Unicorns XXXL Bath Bomb is probably the most fun I’ve ever had taking a bath! I highly recommend trying this, or any of the other XXXL bath bombs out. The Rose Glow Setting Mist is a great product, just be careful with the pump! The Cool as a Cucumber Soothing Facial Toner is nice and refreshing, and I would recommend it to anyone that likes the smell of cucumber! Georgia Charms makes unique, high-quality products that are fun to use and great for your skin. Head on over to their site to check out all that they have to offer!

Blue Ridge Hemp Co. CBD Infused Product Reviews 

Company: Blue Ridge Hemp Co.

“We have taken Industrial Hemp derived CBd and combined it with other ethically and sustainably source Terpene rich botanicals to form products that allow all people to harness the healing power of Cannabis.”

Products:


CBD Infused Roll-On Essential Oil Blend – Joint Care ( 10 ml, 50 mg CBD – $20.00 USD)

CBD Infused Massage & Body Oil ( 8 oz, 100mg CBD – $40.00 USD)

CBD Infused Salve ( 2 oz, 200 mg CBD – $50.00 USD)

All 3 Products – Joint Care Bundle (On Sale for $90.00 USD)

Info/Links:

So, if you’re anything like me, you may have questions about CBD. What is it? What is it used for? Is it legal? Don’t worry, Blue Ridge Hemp Co.’s website breaks this information down for ya! Click here for general info about the company/CBD or check out the science behind CBD.

Alright everybody, put your science hats on for a second. CBD (Cannabidiol) is a nonaddictive compound derived from Industrial Hemp that is known for its health effects, like reducing pain and inflammation and even improves anxiety and stress. It is not psychoactive (it doesn’t get you high) and does not contain THC (I told you, it won’t get you high!).  I highly recommend that you check out their website to become an expert, I mean, why not? This is interesting stuff!

Reviews:

Alright, let’s do this! The first product I tried was the CBD Infused Roll-On Essential Oil Blend – Joint Care. It comes packaged in a super handy roller ball and contains 10 ml of product with 50 mg of CBD. Grapeseed Oil is the base of this product, along with Cannabis Sativa L. Extract (CBD). Turmeric and White Willow Bark amp up the pain and inflammation fighting ability of this product, and essential oils from Pine, Juniper Berry, Rosemary, Lemon Peel, and Peppermint give this a unique herbal, woodsy fragrance that I honestly freakin’ love and look forward to!

I used the Roll-On about 3-4 times a day on my hands (my joints always hurt), feet, and temples. I love how convenient it was to take with me and how quickly I could apply it wherever I needed it. How effective was it? Well, keep reading or skip to The Bottom Line at the end of this post.

 

Next up, is the CBD Infused Massage & Body Oil. You get 8 oz with a 100 mg of CBD. This oil has the same fresh and woodsy scent as the Roll-On, and it is a thin oil with a bunch of moisturizing ingredients. It contains Sunflower, Sesame Seed, and Jojoba oils, which will leave your skin feeling hydrated after you use it (who doesn’t like a multi-functional product?!). It is mineral oil based, so if you avoid that or are sensitive to it, I suggest you look into the other products in Blue Ridge Hemp Co.’s wide range of products.

I used this massage oil on my hands and feet to reduce joint pain and stiffness. I did, however, forget that I fired my personal masseuse (sarcasm, I’m so cute), so I did not get to use it on my sore back except for the time my boyfriend got home early and helped me out. Thanks, babes! It is important to note that this oil has a higher concentration of CBD than the Roll-On.

Last but not least, is the CBD Infused Salve that contains 2 oz of product with 200 mg of CBD. This product is Mango Butter based and also contains Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, and Menthol. The scent is similar to the others, but you also get fruity notes and hints of cocoa with a slight cooling sensation from the menthol. I really like this scent! This product has the highest concentration of CBD. I used it at night time before bed on my hands and feet. It has the texture of a thick balm and a little bit goes a long way! It melts into your skin quickly and leaves behind the awesome scent!

The Bottom Line

I am so glad I got the opportunity to try out these products from Blue Ridge Hemp Co.! They are made with good-for-you ingredients, the packaging is dope, and the company itself is aimed at helping people deal with pain in a natural, vegan, and cruelty-free way (Tylenol, who?). Pretty awesome.

I would say that I have pretty severe pain in my hands, and I do feel that these products have decreased the pain and stiffness over the past week. With continued use, I am sure it will continue to help. If you have severe pain like I do, I highly suggest that you select the products with the highest concentration of CBD, like the salve and gel or give a bundle like this one a try. If you are looking for a product that is quick and easy to use on the go, definitely try out the Roll-Ons! They have a range of products that address muscle pain, joint pain, stress, and more. There are also body scrubs, lotions, and even transdermal patches that I definitely want to try out!

I highly recommend these products and enjoy using them! Thank you, Blue Ridge Hemp Co., for generously giving me these products to review! I truly enjoyed meeting you and will be a customer for life! Head on over to their website to learn more about CBD and sign up for a $10 off coupon on your order! They’re also on Instagram @BlueRidgeHempCo. Let me know how you like the products!

Product: 

Assorted Chocolates, Truffles, Bonbons, and Pralines

Review:


I could barely contain my excitement as I stared down at this lovely box of chocolates! Look how gorgeous and unique each piece is!



Look at these beauties! My favorite was peanut butter and jelly flavored! A raw peanut topped a peanut butter mousse treat which was covered in smooth, rich dark chocolate. That would be good enough but then you get a extra sweet kick of candied grape jelly! Absolute perfection!

Honorable mentions include: a Mint Chocolate truffle that was sweet and refreshing (think of a high quality York Peppermint Patty), a tropical treat with coconut covered pineapple mousse with an almond inside, and a beautifully decorated heart with wings that had a sweet raspberry purée with chocolate mousse! The pralines were sweet and full of fresh, crunchy nuts. The solid chocolates melt away in your mouth like a dream and the nougat-filled candies are spot on!

The Bottom Line

This assortment of chocolates truly had something for everyone! From lavender infused to pistachio, white chocolate, nougat, coconut cream and coffee beans! The design of each chocolate was unique and carefully crafted which made each piece a beautiful and delicious work of art! The ingredients are of the highest quality, and they arrived at my doorstep in perfect condition (hard to do when it’s 85 degrees out!). Honestly, there are so many flavors, you really need to just order them and try them out for yourself! I highly recommend it!

Thank you, Rawnaissance Desserts, for sending me this chocolates to review!

Products

Glow Detoxifying Scrub (4 oz – $12.95 USD)

Om Organic Whipped Body Butter (4 oz – $12.95 USD)

Sublime Natural Deodorant (2 oz – $9.95 USD)

Reviews:


Organic Sugar, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Organic Essential Oils make up the all natural Glow Detoxifying Scrub. This scrub is the perfect way to relax and unwind while making your skin soft and smooth. The scent is bright and herbal, with basil being the prominent scent. Olive Oil is a wonderful moisturizer so you won’t need lotion or anything else when you step out the shower. The sugar makes this an abrasive yet not too rough exfoliator that will get rid of dead skin cells, old sunless tanners, you name it!


If you enjoy authentic floral scents, you will love the Om Organic Whipped Body Butter! The scent of Geranium and Juniper Berry will make you feel like you’re running through a garden, while Organic Shea Nut Butter hits you with powerful hydration! The texture is light and airy, and I liked using this product to seal in moisture right after the shower. This body butter made my skin looking healthy and dewy, and it was even hydrating enough for my dry-as-heck feet!


The Sublime Natural Deodorant is made for sensitive skin and is baking soda free. I have tried natural deodorants in the past that have irritated my skin, so I was excited to try this one out. The scent is Key Lime and Bergamot which you will smell throughout the day when you use this product. It is a nice and pleasant citrusy surprise! The texture is similar to a balm that melts into your skin when you massage it into your armpits. Shea Nut Butter and Coconut Oil moisturize while Arrowroot Powder absorbs odors. This deodorant was effective for me, and I only noticed the slightest bit of funkiness at the end of the day. I will definitely continue to use this!

The Bottom Line

If you are looking for all natural, vegan and cruelty-free products that are sustainably made, smell awesome and actually work, ahimsa Essentials is the brand for you. I love that they are fragranced with essential oils and the packaging is as cute as can be! I highly recommend these products and would love to hear your feedback about them! Head on over to ahimsa Essentials website and check out their range of products!

Thank you so much to ahimsa Essentials for these products to review!

Products: 

BALANCE Gentle Exfoliating Scrub (50 ml/1.7 oz – $50.00 USD)

Review:

This BALANCE Gentle Exfoliating Scrub is fragrance-free and contains smooth jojoba eco-beads for gentle exfoliation. Some of the natural ingredients include Kaolin, Organic Olive, Organic Sunflower, and Organic Green Tea Extract. When massaged into the skin, this product leaves your face feeling fresh, clean, and smooth without feeling dry or irritated. With just a few uses, it has improved the tone and texture of my skin. This product is Step 1 of ATZEN Skin Care’s  “Balance: Age Reverse Safely” Spa Facial System, which makes sense since it removes all dead skin cells, oil, make up, and debris, making the skin ready to absorb additional products.

The Bottom Line

This product is pricey but it is made of high-quality organic ingredients and it gets the job done. The tone and texture of my skin have improved, and I would definitely be interested in trying Step 2 of this skin care system. I appreciate the fact that eco-beads are used instead of plastic. More companies need to make this switch! If you aren’t familiar with the detrimental effects of microbeads on environment/oceans, please look into it! It’s shocking! Have you tried any products from ATZEN Skin Care? If so, I recommend that you give them a try! Let me know how you like them!

Thank you, ATZEN Skin Care, for sending me this product to review!

Stress Be Gone Roll-On Aromatherapy Relief Oil (0.35 oz  – $11.99 USD)

Keep Me Fresh Natural Deodorant (4 oz jar – $16.99 USD)

Reviews:

I don’t know about you, but I use A LOT of hand sanitizer. Studies have shown that store bought brands contain ingredients that are NOT good for you! Ugh! The Germs Be Gone Natural Hand Sanitizer + Yoga Mat Cleaner is a natural germ killer that contains Witch Hazel and essential oils of Tea Tree, Clove, Cinnamon, Lemon, Rosemary, and Eucalyptus. I absolutely LOVE the scent of this product… It has subtle notes of all of the essential oils listed above to create a truly unique fragrance blend! I like to throw this bottle into my bag and use it throughout the day. Of course, I can’t see if it is actually killing germs, but my hands do feel clean after using it. This product is also a yoga mat sanitizer. I have been needing a reason to start doing yoga again, and this just might be it!

The Citrus Dream Body Mist is a delicious blend of Sweet Orange and Tangerine essential oils blended with Ylang Ylang and Vanilla. It’s fresh and fruity and the sweet notes of vanilla make this the perfect summertime scent! It is not overpowering in the slightest bit, it just gives you a light fragrance that can be reapplied throughout the day to lift your spirits and smell fabulous!

The Stress Be Gone Roll-On Aromatherapy Relief Oil comes in a convenient roller ball that you can take anywhere! This stress fighting blend of scents includes essential oils of Organic Lavender, Organic Blood Orange, Organic Ylang Ylang, Organic Patchouli, Organic Bergamot, and Organic Grapefruit. When you roll this product on, your senses are instantly calmed by the soothing floral notes and uplifted by the bright citrus oils. If you’re new to aromatherapy, this product would be a great place to start since lavender has been used to help people relax since forever! *** The white dots are actually covering teeth marks that my dog Bubbles wanted to contribute! She stole the bottle as I was taking pictures of the other products! Teeth marks are not included when you buy this item!

I’m sure you have heard about all of the health issues associated with everyday deodorants. Parabens have been linked to cancer and aluminum has been associated with Alzheimer’s. Needless to say, if you haven’t already it’s time to ditch your mass produced deodorant!  The Keep Me Fresh Natural Deodorant is made of all natural ingredients to keep you feeling and smelling fresh as a daisy! Arrowroot Powder, Baking Soda, Bentonite Clay, and Activated Charcoal work together to help your pits release toxins while keeping them dry (although this is not an antiperspirant), and essential oils of Lavender, Tea Tree, and Grapefruit leave you smelling bomb.com! It is important to remember that sweating is NATURAL and HEALTHY! Typical deodorants clog up your pores and don’t allow you to release toxins, in simple terms, they are not good for you! Please make the switch to a natural deodorant like this one!

The Bottom Line

Apothepurity makes pure products that are vegan and cruelty-free. The packaging is fantastic and the formulations are effective and gentle. I will absolutely keep these products in my skincare and hygiene routine, and look forward to trying more products from this brand. Head on over to Apothepurity and try out some of their wonderful products! Let me know what you think! Use code “VTH20” for 20% off of your order!

Luminous Beauty Product Reviews

Company: Luminous Beauty

“Upma Kaur, celebrates over 22 years experience as a Holistic Esthetician with a passion for illuminating our natural beauty and vitality. Becoming frustrated with the “apply this and look better” magic bullet approach to skin care, Upma decided to create her own line.

She knows that healthy, vibrant skin is both an internal and external experience, our skin is through which we touch the world and how the world touches us. Her approach is based deeply in compassion, kindness, and self-love, supporting the skin from the inside (what you drink and eat and how you think) to the outside (what you apply, express, and how you act). Effective skincare is sustainable whole-body care.

With a love for nature, diversity and an alchemist’s soul, Upma began by crafting body butter in 2013. Received well by friends and family they all clamored for “more of that please!” They also demanded more variety, diversity, and complexity in order to nourish their personal self-care needs. Upma responded with a complete, ever evolving skin care line, luminous beauty. Where heart, soul, and whole body health meet sustainable beauty.”

Products:

Essential Toner (100 ml, $32.95)

Grapefruit Body Creme (4.5 oz, $12.95)

Rejuvenating Cleansing Oil (1 oz, $28.95)

Reviews:

When it comes to toners, I have dry skin so I am always looking for one with hydrating and soothing ingredients. Luminous Beauty’s Rose and Chamomile Essential Toner is perfect for my skin type! Along with rose water and chamomile to nourish and calm the skin, it also contains aloe to soothe and moisturize and witch hazel to gently remove impurities. This toner does not have any added fragrances but the scent itself reminded me of fresh and tangy kombucha!

The packaging is gorgeous and does indeed seem luxurious (I mean, look at it)! The sprayer itself delivers a strong and steady mist of the product, and I only needed 2-3 pumps for my entire face and neck. After using the Essential Toner, my skin felt refreshed, soothed and slightly dewy. It is perfect for wearing on a no makeup day, under a moisturizer, or even as a very light primer!

I LOVE fruity and summery scents so I was super excited to try out the Grapefruit Body Creme! The scent, oh-my-gosh the scent smells like a delicious blend of sweet grapefruit and vanilla. I would absolutely love to wear this as a perfume! The creme is thick yet works into the skin quickly without feeling oily, due to its base of Lavender Hydrosol. After just one use, my skin felt healthy, moisturized, and smelling fabulous!

The Rejuvenating Cleansing Oil is a light blend of various oils including;  Castor Seed Oil, Sesame Oil, Neem Oil along with turmeric, sage, and essential oils. It has a strong herbal scent and I only needed 2 pumps to cleanse my face. I massaged the cleanser into my skin in small circles and it quickly broke down my face and eye makeup with very little effort on my part. My skin was left completely clean and felt fresh and hydrated. I will say that if you do not enjoy using strong scents on your face, you may not enjoy this. Although the scents are due to the natural ingredients and not synthetic fragrances, I did notice that the scent stuck around for awhile on my skin. Otherwise, it worked very well and would recommend this to anyone that enjoys natural, herbal scents!

The Bottom Line 

Luminous Beauty creates quality products with amazing, great-for-you ingredients. These three products performed very well and I would encourage anyone to give them a try! The packaging is absolutely fantastic and would look beautiful displayed in your bathroom or vanity! I will continue to use these products because they do truly make my skin feel noursihed and cared for. Have you tried Luminous Beauty? Let me know what your favorite products are!

It is about the dream, the brainstorming, the creation.

We are hand-crafters, we are honest, we are friendly, we work hard, we love what we do. Oh and yes we are vegans as well!”

Products:

Burdock Root Shine Elixer (1 ounce – $24.50 USD)

Maranta Dry Hair Shampoo: Vegan Hair Powder (1.25 ounce – $10.00 USD)

Hibiscus Flower Facial Exfoliator ($20.00 USD)

May Chang Whole Body Oil (1 ounce – $16.00 USD)

Reviews:


The Burdock Root Shine Elixir contains unique ingredients including Burdock Root Infused Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Broccoli Seed Oil, Seabuckthorn Berry CO2, and Sandalwood and Neroli Essential Oils. This elixir has a slightly sweet and herbal fragrance, and I only needed 4-5 drops to work through my curly, down-to-middle-of-my-back length hair. My hair is dry and color treated so it is not shiny on its own. This elixir helped to hydrate my locks while giving it a slight oh-hey-my-hair-looks-healthier sheen when I used it on my damp hair. When I massaged this product into my dry hair it helped to tame my crazy curls. Don’t use too much or your hair will look greasy! It is made of oils after all!

I tried the Maranta Dry Hair Shampoo: Vegan Hair Powder in the shade Neutral, which is a white powder that blended right into my blonde hair. This product contains Arrowroot Powder, Tapioca Starch, Moroccan Lava Clay, and Green Mandarin, Myrrh and Neroli Essential Oils. It is a fine powder with a light herbal scent. When I sprinkled this dry shampoo on my hair after a long day of sweating at work (the AC was broken), it seemed to absorb the sweat and oils that had built up over the day.  I massaged it vigorously into my roots and it also helped to build volume. I am a fan of shampooing my hair several times a week and conditioning it almost every day, so I do not use dry shampoo very often. In a pinch, I would use this product to freshen my hair up on nights that I am too tired to shower or I would maybe even take it along with me to fix my hair during the workday.

If you’re looking for a unique product to exfoliate your skin, The Hibiscus Flower Facial Exfoliator is it! This purple powder is made of Organic Brown Rice, Hibiscus Flower Powder, Freeze Dried Strawberries, Freeze Dried Bananas, and Acai Pulp Powder! How cool is that? When you add water, this product turns into a vibrant magenta color and gently scrubs away dirt, oil and dead skin cells from your face. It leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft while looking toned and healthy! It has a fresh scent of fruit and flowers and is fun to use!

The May Chang Whole Body Oil is made of plenty of good-for-you ingredients including Organic Unrefined Avocado Oil Organic Golden Jojoba Oil, Organic Seabuckthorn Berry Extract, and Pure Essential Oils. It absorbs quickly into the skin and has a natural herbal scent. It effectively moisturizes the skin, but what I like best about it is the sheen it leaves behind. Who doesn’t love a healthy glow?

The Bottom Line

I truly enjoyed using these products! The Hibiscus Flower Facial Exfoliator was my favorite. I love the color and how it left my skin feeling healthy and soft! All four of these products are excellent quality and do the job they were intended to do.  I would highly recommend Sevi products to anyone looking for vegan and cruelty-free products that are unique and naturally effective!

Thank you, Sevi Eco Vegan Body Care for these fabulous products to review!

 

The Humane Cosmetics Act Re-Introduced to End Animal Testing In the U.S. – WorldAnimalNews.com

PLEASE sign the Care 2 Petition to support The Humane Cosmetics Act! Speak up for animals!

– Article from WorldAnimalNews.com

Representative Martha McSally (R-AZ) was joined by Representative Don Beyer (D-VA) earlier this week to re-introduce legislation designed to phase out and ultimately end the practice of testing the safety of cosmetics on animals in the United States.

The Humane Cosmetics Act would prohibit the selling or transporting of any cosmetics in interstate commerce if any component of the final product was developed or manufactured using animal testing, explained a Press Release that was issued on June 6th.

Care 2 is among those leading the charge for this bill, which unfortunately did not pass out of committee in the 113th and 114th Congress, to gain momentum in the 115th Congress.
The organization further explained that despite the fact that animal testing is not required by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the Product Safety Commission in the United States, many companies continue this inhuman and unnecessary practice.

More concerning, Care 2 stated that some products that are labeled as “not tested on animals” or “cruelty-free” may, at the ingredient level or at certain stages of development, have been tested on animals by other companies; making it even more confusing and frustrating for people who are trying to make compassionate choices.

While the exact number of animals who have been subjected to this abhorrent treatment is unknown because the Animal Welfare Act does not require that all laboratory animals used in the U.S. be reported, it is sadly estimated to be in the millions.

PETA

“The cruelty animals are subjected to during cosmetics testing is unacceptable; from lethal dose tests to irritation and force-feeding tests. Not only are these tests inhumane, but modern technology makes them unnecessary and overly expensive,” said Representative McSally. “The cosmetics industry is already using alternative cutting edge testing methods that are safer, cheaper, and don’t hurt animals. It’s time the United States join the ranks of over 30 other countries in the developed world to stand against this vile practice. The inhumane treatment of animals serves no place in our society.”

The European Union, Israel, Norway, Switzerland, and India are among the countries that have already implemented bans on animal testing and the sale of animal-tested cosmetics.

“Congress should permanently end the painful and unnecessary process of testing cosmetics on animals in this country,” stated Representative Beyer. “The cosmetics industry already has safer, more cost effective methods of testing that do not harm animals. American companies face no economic risk from this legislation, which would also show moral leadership.”

Currently, according to the release, 700 cosmetic brands in North America abstain from testing products or ingredients on animals, and instead use other affordable, proven methods of testing and innovate with thousands of ingredients already proven safe for human use.

The legislation has been endorsed by 195 companies in the cosmetic industry, and the Humane Cosmetics Act is supported strongly by Republican and Democrat co-sponsors.
TAKE ACTION!

Please show your support by signing and sharing the Care 2 petition urging Congress to pass the Humane Cosmetics Act.
