How many products in your makeup kit are without harmful components? We talked about this in the past and here I am, pointing out again, that not everything we put on our skin is without consequences.
A recent study has been conducted by the Environmental Defence Canada through the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics on popular brands like Laura Mercier, L’Oreal, MAC, Mary Kay, Sephora. The conclusions were rather sad, needless to say only one product from the 49 was free of possibly poisonous metal (the product is Annabelle Mineral Pigment Dust Solar). From the studied makeup products, there was one which detached itself with 110ppm level of lead, ten times higher than the limit set by Health Canada. And that product is Benefit Benetint Lip Gloss! What’s your beauty routine and how do studies like this one affect your makeup acquisitions? (via)
