The Dangers of Lipstick: Possible Lead Content

Lead is found in lipsticks can cause cancer

I came across an article today, saying that in the year 2003, several females were on high alert due to a certain terrifying email.

The contents of the email were highly troubling not only to females but to everyone who wears lipsticks.

The email said that most of the popular lipstick brands like Christian Dior, Lancome, Clinique, Yves Saint Laurent, Estee Lauder, Shiseido, Red Earth (Lip Gloss), Chanel (Lip Conditioner) contained traces of lead that can cause cancer.

This email has been found to be highly flawed and is deemed a hoax – resulting only in false alarm and a bad reputation for the brands mentioned.

Although the email content is highly flawed – most especially in terms of reference to such popular brands, it is quite true that lead can be lethal to humans.

Lead is a dangerous substance to humans – causing numerous deterioration of health. Side effects include behavioral problems, learning disabilities, seizures and even death.

It is generally a neurotoxin and can lead to health cases such as miscarriages (for pregnant women), infertility, brain damage and even cancer.

Lead has been found to be present in various household items most especially in paints, solders in plumbing joints and some are also found in children’s toys.

Finding lead in the cosmetic products that one uses on his or her face, especially on the lips is highly frightening. From absorption to ingestion, lead can make its way into your body in various ways.

In the year 2007, the US Food and Drug Administration said that even though there are small amounts or traces of lead in lipstick, it is unlikely to cause cancer.
