Lead In LipstickLead Found in 61% of Lipsticks Tested

A new study released October 11, 2007 by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics found that 20 out of 33 major brands of lipsticks (including L'Oreal, Cover Girl, and Christian Dior) tested positive for lead at an independant laboratory. None of the brands listed lead as an ingredient.

Lead is a potent neurotoxin that causes learning, language, behavioral, and reproductive problems. Woman and children are expeciallly vulnerable. The human body has no requirement for lead and there is no safe level of lead exposure because it accumulates in the body during repeated exposures.

Good news! The Miessence lip cremes available here at Natural Pure Organics are listed as safe alternatives by the Environmental Working Group.
