The makeup industry is secretly one of the most corrupt industries in the world, whether you believe it or not. The chemicals women are putting on their faces today are toxic; if you don’t believe me see for yourself.
The makeup industry uses some of the most profound carcinogenic chemicals ever known. Lots of lipsticks contain toxic heavy metals in them. Always check the ingredients labels before you purchase your next lipstick. The CEO’s of these makeup companies are making billions per year at the expense of your health. Of course, they’re not the only ones doing this. Many corporations that control our food and water do the very same thing. It’s no wonder cancer is on such a rapid rise.
Were you aware of the fact that the US has little health regulations and no required health testing before their products hit the shelves? This is an open window for the greedy CEO’s to save millions of dollars; at the price of your health. They particularly use harmful chemicals in deodorants, foundations, powders, lipsticks, and shampoos. The Environmental Defense Group tested 49 makeup items for their levels of toxic metals. What they found was stunning. In fact, almost all of the most popular makeup brands tested for highly toxic metals. They tested the following.
- 5 foundations,
- 4 powders,
- 4 concealers,
- 8 lipsticks or glosses,
- 5 blushes or bronzers,
- 7 mascaras,
- 2 eyeliners, and
- 14 eye shadows.
Around 96% of the makeup products tested contained lead-based ingredients. 90% contained beryllium based ingredients, and 61% contained thallium based ingredients. That’s not all either; 51% had cadmium and 20% contained arsenic. It’s clear to see that these are not chemicals that belong in makeup products, or anything else that comes in contact with people for that matter.
