Today I wanted to talk to you all about heavy metals in cosmetics. Exposure to heavy metals in cosmetics is an important piece of the environmental health puzzle. For the most part, cosmetics companies are not intentionally using heavy metals as ingredients in their products. However, heavy metals are frequently found in makeup because they contaminate the colorants that companies use. Whether those colorants are natural ingredients that come from the earth (where heavy metals are present at random and may attach to the intentionally mined ingredients), or whether they are synthetic, heavy metal contamination seems to be common in a wide range of makeup products.

Even small amounts of heavy metals are concerning. But because heavy metals are are ubiquitous, it is impossible to avoid them all together. For this reason, we have set extremely low "allowable levels". For the most dangerous heavy metals (lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic) we often have ZERO or "NO DETECT" levels, and have set our allowable levels below 2 parts per million. This is a strict standard in an industry that normally does not test for contamination or set any limits.
