Kardashian takes on Congress for cosmetics regulations

Kourtney Kardashian recently traded in sun-soaked California for a trip to Washington, D.C. to take on Congress.

According to ELLE, Kardashian met with “several members of congress to lobby for better regulation of beauty products” through her work with the Environmental Working Group, which “currently has a big #beautymadebetter initiative pushing for federal law to ensure stricter screening of personal care products made with chemicals linked to cancer, allergies, and other harmful effects.”

With existing legislation unchanged since 1938ELLE says the eldest Kardashian sister has Rep. Frank Pallone Jr., member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, on her side, offering that the guidelines need a revamp to “ensure cosmetics are safe for the American people.”

As for Kardashian, this isn’t a new effort for her; in fact, she’s long been all about ‘clean’  and non-toxic cosmetics, even “going so far as to stop wearing deodorant and DIYing her own,” according to ELLE, and even making sure that products for her folded Kardashian Beauty line were paraben and sulfate-free.

Here’s hoping Congress keeps up with this Kardashian on making beauty products safer for all!

Spears supports Dreamers with slogan tee

“We are all dreamers” — that is the very idea that Britney Spears is promoting in a recent Instagram post.

According to HuffPost, the pop star took to Instagram (among other social media accounts) to “urge Congress to pass the bill to protect from deportation nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children ― often referred to as Dreamers.”

Posting a photo of herself in a midriff-baring T-shirt, HuffPost says Spears supported Dreamers all over the country with the tee, which read “We are all dreamers.” She accompanied the post with a caption that read in part, “Tell Congress to pass the #DreamAct.”

HuffPost reports that the photo earned more than 350,000 likes in just five hours.
