Lipsticks Can Be Dangerous

Southwest Sunshine

You may be using a so-called, “Natural lipstick,” but unfortunately not all lipstick companies are on the up and up when it comes to lipstick ingredients.

Some of the largest make up companies in the world fill their products with chemicals that are not so nice. In fact, some women say that certain lipsticks make them break out in sores along the top and bottom of the lips or even burn their lips. People say that they do not have sensitive lips when they use the Longest Lasting Lipsticks from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE.

If you follow the SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE blog, you will know that lipstick companies often use lead as a base in their lipsticks. Lead can be dangerous as it is a neurotoxin. Neurotoxins can cause serious health problems, even in small doses. However, it isn’t just the lead that causes problems.

Some lipsticks contain methylparaben, which is a preservative that is outlawed in some countries because it can disrupt your endocrine system and may be linked to cancer.

Propylparaben is another ingredient that is often used in lipsticks. Propylparaben can irritate your eyes and skin and cause serious problems. Recent studies indicate that it may cause endocrine disruption and cancer.

Retinyl Palmitate, a synthetic Vitamin A, may be toxic to women who are pregnant.

Colorants, such as D&C Red 22 Aluminum Lake and D&C Red 36 are posing health concerns as these colorants that are typically tested on animals and have been linked to nervous system damage.

Tocopheryl Acetate or Vitamin E acetate is used in a number of makeup and skin care products including foundation, moisturizer, and lipstick. If you use a product that contains Tocopheryl Acetate, your skin or lips can burn or itch. This chemical additive can also cause skin blistering, scaling, and hives.
