Did you know that 60% of what we apply on our skin (including makeup) gets absorbed into our body and sometimes even our bloodstream? With most conventional lipsticks containing heavy toxic ingredients that can harm your health, it’s more important than ever to be mindful of the ingredients we use on our skin, including our lips.
Lipsticks, lip glosses, and lip balms are must-haves in any makeup kit. With their vast array of colors and finishes, these lip products can help you achieve the perfect pout.
However, one of the common ingredients found in lipstick is Methylparaben, which is used as a preservative due to its antifungal properties. This chemical is restricted in Europe due to its potential carcinogenic and endocrine-disrupting properties.
Another ingredient to avoid is Retinyl Palmitate, a synthetic derivative of vitamin A that can increase the risk of skin cancer and cause developmental and reproductive problems.
Lastly, lead and other heavy metals, like titanium and aluminum, are commonly found in lipsticks. These metals are naturally occurring in the manufacturing process, but the concentration levels in lipsticks can be harmful.
Lead, in particular, is a neurotoxin that can cause various health issues, including neurodevelopmental problems in children, infertility, and even miscarriages.
To avoid these toxic ingredients, it’s best to opt for natural and organic lipstick brands. Look for lip products made with safe, all-natural ingredients that you can trust.
