Proposed Ban on Toxins in Personal Care Products Fails in House

March 3, 2010

A measure that would ban certain toxins and carcinogens from cosmetics and shampoos failed by a 7 - 4 vote in the house judiciary committee after lengthy debate. Colorado would've been the first state to have such a ban, but lawmakers say the science isn't there to link the ingredients to cancer. Bente Birkeland reports from the state capitol.
