We all know that lead is toxic and we should never allow our children to eat paint. Paint from old houses and contaminated soil are the cause of many children having brain damage and learning disabilities.
I was very disturbed when I found out that several major brands of lipstick contain lead.
“Dr. Elizabeth Ayoub, biomolecular and medical is issued an alert for lipsticks containing lead, which is a carcinogen. Recently the brand ‘Red Earth’ decreased prices of R $ 67.00 to R $ 9.90! Why? Because it contained lead.”
Lead will also damage your brain and poison you. I wonder why Red Earth did not issue a recall for their dangerous product, and why they kept SELLING IT?
The brands that contain lead are:
RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)
The higher the lead content, the greater the risk. After doing a test on lipsticks, the highest level of lead was in AVON.
TEST YOUR LIPSTICK FOR LEAD:
1. Put some lipstick on your hand;
2. Rub a gold ring on this lipstick;
3. If the lipstick color changes to black, then you know that it contains lead.
