You surely know that lead is an environmental toxin we should avoid—but exposure is more critical with products we apply directly to our skin. As the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics stated, “Lead builds up in the body over time and lead-containing lipstick applied several times a day, every day, can add up to significant exposure levels.” Such accumulation of harmful metals can affect brain function and cause chronic diseases.
You know that Ecco Bella customers don’t need to worry about our products. Not only do we test for lead, but also for cadmium and mercury. In a test conducted by EMSL Analytical of both Ecco Bella Lipstick and Eyeshadow, the results showed only negligible lead, cadmium and mercury.
Ecco Bella FlowerColor Lipstick is a simple formula of vegetable waxes, oils and mineral pigments that are free of gluten, FD&C dyes, preservatives and fragrance. Our FlowerColor lipsticks also moisturize without flaking or chapping. They go on creamy and won’t feather. What do you expect from a lipstick that thinks it’s a lip balm?
So while some cosmetic companies seem OK with unacceptable levels of ingredients more usually found in batteries and radiation shields, you can be sure Ecco Bella aspires to a much higher standard–Mother Nature.
