Best Natural and Organic Lip Products
Our beloved Lipstick makes us feel beautiful and confident but some of you may have heard scary news that some may have traces of lead. Lead isn’t the only toxic metal you may be applying to your lips. Lipsticks and lip glosses contain lead, cadmium, chromium, aluminum, and five other toxic metals, some are at levels that could raise potential health concerns, according to a new U.S. study. So its very important to look for safe ingredients because we can easily ingest any chemicals that we put on our lips. Lead and other heavy metals builds up in the body over time and can potentially affect our health.
Some ingredients probably aren’t as safe as you’d hope. You can go easily get critical information of your personal products at Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetic Database . If you want to be safe, simply look for certifications like USDA Organic and the Natural Products Association.
