Stacy Malkan, author of Not Just a Pretty Face and co-founder of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, is generating a storm of media attention on the issue of toxic cosmetics. Recent studies which reveal detectable levels of lead in more than half of 33 brand-name lipsticks are shocking and alarming consumers across North America. Outraged protests from major cosmetics manufacturers that their products are in compliance with FDA regulations neatly sidestep the issue that the FDA has failed to set a limit for lead in lipstick and many other personal care products.

Check out the Good Morning America story here, the ABC news story here, and watch the CNN story here!

You can listen to Stacy this Monday, October 15 from 1:00 to 1:30 EST on Martha Stewart Live, airing nationally on the SIRIUS Satellite Radio Network.

Congratulations Stacy! Way to go!

Addendum: Stacy will also be appearing tonight on CBC Newsworld, interviewed by David Gray!
