Is there lead in lipstick and if so is it dangerous to use lipstick?

Four hundred types of lipstick contain trace amounts of lead, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which found some products tested for levels that exceeded safety recommendations.

See Related Links for a link to the list.

Go to the website called pg com and you'll find the MSDS for every product Procter & Gamble makes, which means there are untold thousands of MSDS on their site.

Lipstick contains oils and waxes, along with lanolin and mica. There's no lead in it.

The colorants you might find in it include various food-grade reds, yellows, oranges, a blue, a green, and white. No lead, and the MSDS states, "The product(s) does not contain ingredients considered hazardous as defined by OSHA, 29 CFR 1910.1200 and/or WHMIS under the HPA.

The potential health effects:

Eye contact: Contact may cause mild, transient irritation; some redness and/or stinging may occur.

Skin contact: Not expected to be irritating, sensitizing, photoallergenic or phototoxic when used as intended--which makes sense because this product is intended to be applied to human skin.

Inhalation: Not expected to be irritating; not volatile therefore limited inhalation exposure anticipated.

Ingestion: Product used as intended is not expected to cause gastrointestinal irritation. Accidental ingestion of undiluted product may cause mild gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

Based on this, and on the millions of people who wear lipstick every day without damage, I would rate lipstick as a very safe product.
