Kourtney Kardashian spoke on Capitol Hill Tuesday in support of a bill to more strictly regulate personal care products.

Kardashian briefed Senate staffers with the Environmental Working Group to back the Personal Care Products Safety Act of 2017, which would require personal care companies to tell the Food and Drug Administration what ingredients they include in their products and register their facilities with federal authorities.

It has been 80 years since a law was passed that regulates these items.


Coincidentally, her sister Kylie Jenner has a new cosmetics line which she is also involved in, and she told the Senate staffers how it avoids using “toxic chemicals.” One attendee told People that Kardashian “side-stepped” questions about what type of chemicals were in the product.

“Disappointed in consumer safety briefing with @kourtneykardash. Denied to answer what chemicals are in her new makeup line with sister @KylieJenner and side stepped questions on where the family sources their products… yet Kourt was advocating for safer & smarter cosmetics ?” an attendee tweeted.

E&E News reporter Corbin Hiar noted that the reality star managed to speak to congressional staffers on the same day her and Jenner’s cosmetic’s line launched.

Kardashian was spotted by TMZ taking a selfie ahead of the event. She declined to answer whether family plans to become more involved in politics.
