Event Recap: Kiss Toxins Away

Before you perfect that pout with your favorite lipstick, let’s talk about what the consequences that 80% of people face who regularly wear lipstick. Dating back to Ancient Rome, you’ll find the first appearance of a makeup artist or what they called, cosmatae. Wealthy women who had the service of a makeup artists were able to have their lipstick applied for them, daily. But the downside is the lipstick contained toxic ingredients like white lead, fucus, and vermillion.

Flash forward to our time, and sadly not much has changed today. Your favorite lipstick still may contain toxic ingredients. The University of California-Berkeley’s School of Public Health found lead, cadmium, aluminum, chromium in commonly sold lipstick products at highly toxic levels. And even though lead has been banned in most products, it was found in 75% of the samples claimed by USA Today regarding the same study.

Still not sure why this may affect you? It’s said that those that wear lipstick daily unintentionally eat about 4 pounds of lipstick in their lifetime.
