Lead in Lipstick


Recently a lipstick brand called "Red Earth" decreased their prices from $67 to $9.90 because it contained lead.

Lead causes cancer and the lipstick brands that contain lead are:

  • CHRISTIAN DIOR
  • LANCOME
  • CLINIQUE
  • Y.S.L.
  • ESTEE LAUDER
  • SHISEIDO
  • RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
  • CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)
  • MARKET AMERICA-MOTNES LIPSTICK

The higher the lead content, the greater the chance of causing cancer. After doing a test on lipsticks, it was found that the Y.S.L. lipstick contained the most amount of lead.

Here is the test you can do yourself:

  1. Put some lipstick on your hand.
  2. Use a Gold ring to scratch on the lipstick.
  3. If the lipstick color changes to black, then you know the lipstick contains lead.

Please send this information to all your girlfriends, wives and female family members. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center> Dioxin Carcinogens cause cancer, especially breast cancer.
