What You Should Know About Lipsticks


Lipstick is known to contain lead. In fact, the FDA reported that numerous inquires have been received from consumers in regard to the amount of lead present in lipstick.


According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration(OSHA), epidemiological and experimental studies indicate that chronic exposure to lead may result in impaired kidney function, brain damage, anemia,high blood pressure, neurological issues, and more.


However, the FDA has done several research to provide consumers with an answer to these health issue concerns. One of such research conducted was an expanded survey of lipsticks, covering a wide variety of shades, prices, and manufacturers. Four hundred lipsticks available on the U.S. market in the spring of 2010 were tested for total lead content.


The FDA's studies have found the lead found in lipsticks is far below the level that would call for safety concerns when lipstick is used as intended.

However, understandably, some people are still concerned about the possibly build up of lead overtime, especially if lipstick is used frequently throughout the course of the day.

Solution
For those lipstick users who are still concerned about the safety of lipstick, one solution may be the use of one of these brands of natural lipstick that are currently available on the market.
