Arrangement of facial cosmetics

Rachel Abrams, New York Times reporter, and Tina Sigurdson, general counsel for the Environmental Working Group, talk about the proposed legislation to require the FDA to regulate cosmetics. Major players in the cosmetics industry, like Johnson & Johnson, back the proposed regulations because it's a way to regain the public trust. 

But the bill has caused a splintering effect, as small manufacturers are concerned that they won't be able to comply with certain regulations. Lack of funding hinders everything from new research and development to hiring corporate lawyers.
