Lead in Lipsticks and What You Can Do About it
It's widely known that cosmetics contain a great deal of chemicals, toxic, dangerous and even deadly. Though the chemicals are in a small non-lethal dose when used just once, no one knows what the long term effect is on people's health with constant use in one's lifetime.
There are really only three options and an alternative decision.
Option1: e-mail or call the parent company of the lipstick that you're using and ask them to tell you if your lipstick has lead. If so, how much lead does it have. However, don't be surprised if they express unwillingness to disclose this information to you. Corporations like to hide the substances in their products under the claim of "company trade secrets".
One may wonder how come the companies producing organic and mineral cosmetics are not afraid to disclose the ingredients in their products.
The government doesn't have any regulations for lead in lipsticks, but as a reference, by law, the allowed safe level of lead in candy is 0.1 parts per million (ppm). And some more popular lipsticks have shown to have up to 6 times that amount.
Option2: simply switch over to organic lipstick so you're no longer exposed to lead and all the other deadly chemicals present in lipsticks nowadays.

Option3: simply ignore the lead in lipsticks, continue to use lipsticks whether they have lead or not and make sure you constantly cleanse your body of the toxic chemicals accumulating in your body.
The Alternative Decision would be to educate yourself about the toxic chemicals in the cosmetics and what these chemicals can do to your health so you can make better decision next time you buy another lipstick.
