If you think your favorite lipstick, gloss or eye shadow is “safe” because it doesn’t list lead or arsenic on the ingredients label, think again. Virtually every cosmetic product tested in one study contained a potentially dangerous or proven toxic heavy metal.

Personal care products are a $50 billion industry in the United States, yet the U.S. government doesn’t require any mandatory testing for these products before they hit store shelves.

Lipstick, deodorants, shampoos and other personal care products do not usually undergo testing and many times don’t contain a complete list of ingredients.

What this means is that women who apply lipstick several times a day could easily be ingesting high amounts of lead over the course of their lifetime, along with any number of other unknown chemical additives.

Chemicals are not only ingested but also absorbed through your skin, and are not limited to cosmetics.Harmful Chemicals that Cause Carcinogenic Lipstick

The Environment Defense Group did a study on 49 makeup products to test them for levels of toxic metals.

Research has shown excessive amounts of heavy metals in just about every makeup product. 96 percent were found to have lead, 61 percent had thallium, and 90 percent had beryllium in them. Research also pointed out that 20 percent had arsenic while 51 percent had cadmium in them.

Harmful Metals Cause Carcinogenic Lipstick
Out of the eight metals tested, most of the tested products contained 4 metals. Every tested product contains 2 out of the 4 metals that have extreme risk for health concern. Arsenic, lead, mercury and cadmium are extremely dangerous toxins and are life-threatening. A report done by the FDA recently noted that 400 brands of lipstick had traced amounts of lead in them.

The report found that the levels were too low to even be considered life-threatening. Dr. Mark Mitchell (from the National Medical Association) believes different and is skeptic of that. He says that: “lead can build up over time in the body, and if the particular lipstick that contains lead is applied several times per day, it can add up to alarming levels of exposure.”

In the Environmental Defense Group’s study, 51 percent of the tested products were found to have cadmium. Its well known as a carcinogen in the scientific community. Many patients with breast cancer have traces of cadmium in them, studies found. What is even more scary, is that a lot of the metals don’t show damaging effects instantly. They do make the body more susceptible to serious illness including cancer.
