So, what can we do to get disclosure introduced as a law? As much as I hate getting the government involved, I'm willing to bet it is the ONLY way we are going to get this info. I know it is the law for human shampoos, but not for animals? And groomers are exposed to these products WAY more than anyone is exposed to human shampoos (unless you are a beautician)...
