Did You Know?

What’s in your kid’s makeup?

Toxic Kids Makeup ReportGlitter everything. Cartoon shampoo. Lip balms.

Oh yeah and Halloween face paint.

In 2009, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics sent 10 Halloween makeup kits to a lab to test for heavy metals, and found lead in 100% of the products tested. 

They also found:

  • Chromium
  • Nickel
  • Cobalt

This year, they tested again plus other “beauty” products from the toy aisle and children’s stores. The culprit: styrene — a carcinogenic chemical sometimes used in fragrance and other ingredients.

  • Petrochemicals
  • Carcinogens
  • Toxic synthetics
  • Mystery “fragrance” ingredients
