SACRAMENTO - California governor Gavin Newsom has signed off on a bill banning the manufacture and sale of garments and textiles that contain PFAS (perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances) in the state by 2025.

Newsom also signed a bill banning the toxic chemicals from cosmetic products but he vetoed a third bill which would have created a publicly accessible database of consumer items containing them.

PFAS - dubbed 'forever chemicals' for their durability in the environment - are widely used in water- and stain-proof coatings for textiles but have been linked to major health risks including liver damage, thyroid disease and cancer.
