Beautycounter and retailers like Follain, which I wrote about this week, are lobbying the government to better regulate the industry and help consumers find safer products. But the products they sell tend to be expensive. Yesterday, CVS announced that it would be cutting out all parabens, phthalates, and the most prevalent formaldehyde donors across 600 products from its store brands by the end of 2019. This means there will be safer, affordable products on the market soon.
