Tested Lipsticks for Lead

lipsticks Below you will find the list of lipsticks that The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics have tested for lead.

BUYER BEWARE: The tested lipsticks may or may not be representative of the entire lipstick market. The lead levels could vary widely for other shades, and as the results below demonstrate, levels are not consistent by brand, shade or state of purchase.

This list should not be used to decide which brands are safe or unsafe. Instead it highlights two important findings: First, there is lead in some lipsticks and consumers cannot determine it based on the ingredients, the price or the brand. Second, there are lipsticks containing no detectable levels of lead at every price level. Manufacturers have the ability to make lead-free lipsticks and we should require that they do so.
