On March 1, 2010, Colorado's House Committee on Judiciary voted to indefinitely postpone House Bill 10-1248 (HB 1248), or the Colorado Safe Personal Care Products Act.
The bill, introduced to the Colorado State Legislature on Feb. 3, 2010, by Rep. Diane Primavera (D-Broomfield) and Sen. Betty Boyd (D-Colorado), prohibited the sale of personal care products formulated with chemicals identified as causing cancer or reproductive toxicity, as reported by C&T magazine.
The bill stipulated that cosmetic manufacturers could not sell or distribute products containing potentially harmful ingredients in the state after Sept. 1, 2011. The bill was posponed by the judiciary committee with a vote of 7-4.
