If you are still continuing to put a wax based product on your LIPS. Your greatest concern should be the MOUNDS of wax that you will ingest over your life span. Nothing good comes from eating wax. It is an interesting thing when I receive a call from a woman asking me if I have lead in the product? The answer in “NO” with what I am currently applying to my Lips. The caller on the phone is telling me that she uses YSL lipstick.
Wax & Lead!
Interesting enough, My Grandmother was a victim of a nasty problem caused by HAIRSPRAY back in the 50’s. She was involved in a very long lawsuit connected to many hospital stays due to her illness associated with HairSpray. These days, in our most modern world these types of problems related to health & beauty items do not make it past the FDA stringent guidelines. Lead can cause major health problems, although generally not in the smallest form with Lipstick.
When I receive emails that are crazy, I turn to “Snopes”. They will always bust the Urban legends that float about the internet on a daily basis.
There is not yet, ONE single case of any woman contracting lead poisoning from Lipstick. Not to mention that when it relates to cancer that is not one of the adverse effects caused by excessive exposure to lead.
This information only relates to products legally in the US. I would not recommend purchasing products that are produced outside of the US. You would assume a risk unless you are willing to do a your homework with an ingredient list in your hand.
