This is something every woman should know about… Even lipstick isn’t safe anymore…what’s next? Brands don’t mean everything. Recently a brand called “Red Earth” decreased their prices from $67 to $9.90. It contained lead. Lead is a chemical which causes cancer.
The Brands which contain lead are:
RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)
MARKET AMERICA-MOTNES LIPSTICK.
The higher the lead content, the greater the chance of causing cancer!
After doing a test on lipsticks, it was found that the Y.S.L. lipstick contained the most amount of lead. Watch out for those lipsticks which are supposed to stay on longer. If your lipstick stays on longer, it is because of the higher content of lead.
Here is the test you can do yourself:
Put some lipstick on your hand.
Use a Gold ring to scratch on the lipstick.
If the lipstick color changes to black then you know the lipstick
The Dioxin within the lead is a Carcinogen, which causes cancer, especially breast cancer.
Live, Love, Laugh …Be healthy!
