The 39-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality star joined Environmental Working Group (EWG) President Ken Cook at a briefing on Capitol Hill on Tuesday to discuss the importance of cosmetics reform.

Kardashian, who supports bipartisan legislation aimed at reforming how the FDA regulates the personal care products industry, spoke about her experience with cosmetics and researching what goes into the products so that they are safe for her children. She also explained how her family has a slew of cosmetics lines that have all been tested by the EWG.

"I think it would be nice if there were laws to regulate so that people running these business and companies can have some standards of what to use," Kardashian explained, per an NBC clip. "I do think it affects everyone because I think everyone needs personal care products."

Personal care products remain largely unregulated, and the FDA doesn't require safety testing of ingredients in the products before they are used, according to the EWG. The Personal Care Products Safety Act was created by senators Dianne Feinstein and Susan Collins last May. The act hopes to create a way to regulate the ingredients in these products.

Following the event, Kardashian took to her Instagram Stories to thank Sen. Patty Murray "for supporting strong cosmetics legislation."
