Lead In Lipstick

Lip Imprint on Window

A few months ago I blogged about Make-up Absorption. I thought this would make a good follow up post.

From Reuters:
Lipsticks contain lead, consumer group says
“Lipsticks tested by a U.S. consumer rights group found that more than half contained lead and some popular brands including Cover Girl, L’Oreal and Christian Dior had more lead than others, the group said on Thursday.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics said tests on 33 brand-name red lipsticks by the Bodycote Testing Group in Santa Fe Spring, California, found that 61 percent had detectable lead levels of 0.03 to 0.65 parts per million (ppm).”
