Campaign for Safe Cosmetics Wants Cap On Lipstick Lead, Proposes 0.026 PPM

Executive Summary

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is not satisfied with FDA’s safety conclusions regarding lead in lipstick, asking for more data and pointing to a new CDC report suggesting there is no safe level of lead for children. The activist group has launched a new campaign singling out L’Oreal as the “worst offender” in selling “lead-laden” lipsticks, based on FDA test results posted in December.
