Ladies – Get the lead out (of your lipstick)

Got two short articles for you.

One is an FDA study that found levels of lead in over 400 lipstick products.

The other is an article that lists several lipstick brands that do not have lead.

Lead is toxic and does not belong in our body.  If you slather lead-based lipstick on your lips the lead will be absorbed.

Is this a huge deal?  I don’t know but I’m glad to know there are alternatives.
