Is lip-gloss dangerous?
According to a German examination by scientists, the daily use of lip-gloss can be harmful to women’s health.
A lot of women these days use lip-gloss on a regular basis. According to a German examination by scientists, the daily use of lip-gloss can be harmful to women’s health.
This has been published in a German consumers-magazine Ökotest. This consumers-magazine examined 24 popular brands of lip-gloss that women can by at drugstores and perfume shops. The results of that examination concluded that only 4 out of 24 brands of lip-gloss appeared to be harmless for women’s health.
The magazine delivers a huge list of poisonous substances that were found in lip-glosses of the 20 remaining other brands. Poisonous substances such as: CI 11680, CI 11920, CI15800, CI 16230. Researchers even found paraffin’s and silicones in the poisonous lip-glosses.
Completely unknown substances for consumers, but according to German scientists they can seriously affect and harm liver, kidneys and nodes if they arrive in a human body and remain there too long. These substances can even cause skin reactions and asthma.
Problem with lip-gloss is that even if it is put on the lips and not inside the mouth, it will move inside the mouth and as a result of this, it will arrive inside the body while drinking or consuming food. The synthetic color substance Tartrazin (E102) for instance, has been allowed to be contained by cosmetics, because it cannot harm the skin. So there isn’t a external risk to skin and body, but there are still discussions going on about the internal risks of skin and body.
