The FDA has agreed to investigate claims by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, an advocacy group, that certain lipsticks contain high levels of lead. Among the top brands testing positive for lead were:
â€¢ L’OrÃ©al Colour Riche “True Red”: 0.65 ppm
â€¢ L’OrÃ©al Colour Riche “Classic Wine”: 0.58 ppm
â€¢ Cover Girl Incredifull Lipcolor “Maximum Red”: 0.56 ppm
â€¢ Dior Addict “Positive Red”: 0.21 ppm
While the FDA does not set lead levels in lipstick, the concerns about lead in lipstick are not new.
