Ask Liz: Lead in Lipstick

Dolce & Gabbana

Should viewers be worried about lead in beauty products like lipstick? The Food and Drug Administration says:

  • Small traces of lead have been found in many popular lipstick brands.
  • However, it does NOT consider the lead levels to be a safety concern.
  • Reports about lead in lipstick date back to the 1990s.
  • The FDA says it will continue to investigate this issue to make sure that there continue to be no safety concerns for consumers.
