Here is a sample script you can use, or please feel free to speak from your heart:

"Hello. My name is ______, and I am concerned about the safety of cosmetics, salon products and personal care products. I am calling to ask you to support the Safer Beauty Bill Package -- which includes bills HR5537, HR5538, HR5539 and HR5540. These bills will remove toxic chemicals from these products, will make ingredient transparency the new industry standard and make products safer for me, my community, and everyone. We come into contact with dozens of these products every day, that means my body can be exposed to chemicals linked to cancer, asthma, infertility, and other serious health problems multiple times a day. This is not right. We need solutions, and the Safer Beauty Bill Package will provide these solutions and the protections we need. I ask you to support this bill package and stand up for my health, your health, and the health of all your constituents.”
