A study released by the University of California, Berkeley (UBC) School of Public health has found many conventional lipstick products to contain dangerously high levels of aluminum, cadmium, lead, and other toxins. Researchers tested over 30 popular lipstick products and found this to be the case. The study was published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives. Even women using minimal amounts of product still increase their risk of developing harmful health conditions like nerve damage and cancer by an alarming amount.

According to the study:

Most of the tested lip products contained high concentrations of titanium and aluminum. All examined products had detectable manganese. Lead was detected in 24 products (75%), with an average concentration of 0.36 ± 0.39 ppm, including one sample with 1.32 ppm. When used at the estimated average daily rate, estimated intakes were > 20% of ADIs derived for aluminum, cadmium, chromium, and manganese…

  1. But Dr. Bramhall, we just love the lipstick that can’t be kissed off, smudged off, drank off or beat off. That’s a great deal right there. We can go to dinner and eat and get particles of aluminum, cadmium, chromium and manganese along with the rest of our dinner. Afterwards, we can dance and sip champagne and never miss a beat and then when it’s time to do the horizontal tango, why our mate’s mouth will also get some particles of aluminum, cadmium, chromium and manganese, just to name a few and we can aid in his demise while we are aiding in our own. But of course, women will continuously buy into what constitutes beauty and wearing lipstick suggest this as does the wearing of stiletto heels and we know those are bad for us but we do it anyway. It’s the sexy look, you know, according to men who promote that in magazines, the TV, the big screen and so forth and so on.

    I hate to the Ms. Know-it-all here, but I have been aware that lipstick is a toxin for decades now. I know you don’t think I wear any. Dear me, I guess I am just all in the know.

  2. Well, Shelby, despite growing up under the total domination of one of those mothers from Hell (I think you know what kind), I reckon I owe her considerable gratitude for some of the values she instilled in me. She did teach me not to be pressured by the superficial attitudes TV, Madison Avenue and men tried to impose on me. Thanks for your comment. It really sums it all up.

    • And don’t you know as luck would have it, my sainted vestal virgin mother who by the way, had all three of us delivered via the stork, was also not into makeup. She discouraged it AND how! And you know I don’t get along with her but I must thank her for instilling in me the need to think for myself and to do a bit of critical thinking; not to mention, I owe her my feistiness.
