About The Report:
Environmental Defence tested the makeup bags of six Canadian women. 49 face makeup items were chosen, including five foundations, four concealers, four powders, five blushes or bronzers, seven mascaras, two eye liners, 14 eye shadows, and eight lipsticks or glosses. The results weren’t pretty. Read our report “Heavy Metal Hazard: The Health Risks of Hidden Heavy Metals in Face Makeup” and take action: tell Canada’s government to get toxic chemicals out of consumer products.
