When companies sign the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, they are pledging not only to make safer products, but also to provide greater transparency to consumers about their products. By signing, cosmetics manufacturers pledge that: 1. All cosmetics and personal care products made by the company anywhere in the world meet or exceed the formulation standards and deadlines set by the European Union cosmetics directive to be free of chemicals that are known or strongly suspected of causing cancer, mutation or birth defects. 2. The company will implement substitution plans that replace hazardous materials with safer alternatives within three years, and publicly report its progress in meeting these goals.

The presence of what appears to be a recycling symbol does not necessarily mean that the product or material will be accepted locally. Producers are increasingly manufacturing their goods for a European or worldwide market and are obliged to include a variety of potentially misleading symbols. Consumers should also be aware that some symbols are not for their benefit, but for the waste handling and disposal industry. The internationally-recognized recycling symbol is the 3 chasing arrows icon, the Mobius Loop. Each arrow represents an aspect of a successful recycling program: collection, remanufacturing/reprocessing into a new product, and finally purchase by the consumer. The symbol is only supposed to be used on goods that are 'recyclable' or include 'recycled content', but it has no precise meaning. This symbol may be found on a broad range of products made of a variety of materials.
