Does Re-Applying Lipstick, Gloss Expose Women To Toxic Levels and could men be affected too?
Share your thoughts and opinions
I'm a lady and have known this for many years. This is why I only use lipsticks/lip balms, toothpastes, body lotions, soaps, fragrances that are all natural and have done so for years. It costs more but I'd rather pay more at the counter now than pay for it with my health and wallet times one thousand later. I am also very allergic to some of the man made garbage that these products are made with.
It still surprises me that so many people don't understand why women are still diagnosed with cancers and heart problems when compared to men. Look at all that stuff she's using to beautify and slowly kill herself with day in and out. These days, even toddlers are using chemical laden lipbalms and glosses.
So many people are uninformed about all the chemicals in the foods and products they use every single day. Men can be affected as well. Chemicals are stored in our body fat as well as our internal organs and while I would suspect that the man's issues would be less than the woman's due to him getting second hand exposure to her lipstick/gloss/balms, it's still possible as problems from chemical exposures are very often of a cumulative nature. Don't even get me started on fragrances/perfumes/body sprays.
In recent years there have been reports that perfume is as cancerous as second-hand cigarette smoke.
The Holy Spirit showed me that part of the work to kill off most of the world's population is being performed by slowly poisoning people. Because it is relatively simple to identify a carcinogen in a product, they have confused the scenario.
They add only a part of a poison to each of several commercial products. In a few only, they add activators, components that utilize the parts already present in the body from toothpaste, underarm deodorant and shampoo (and all other products that go onto the body, and are absorbed through skin.)
Sure! they put lots of terrible things in many popular cosmetics brands, it migh tlook good but it's terrible for the health. There are tons of terrible things in makeup: things that have been linked to cause cancer, cause thyroid problems and cause birth defects. That's why I am a huge supporter of natural products, and whenever possible I try to make my own products or buy healthier choices.
I am sure this could happen, depending on the product. Unfortunately the manufacturers are not obliged to reveal what is in these cosmetic products. I doubt that men would be affected, unless they kissed all day, or wear the products themselves!
I think most cosmetics are safe. Men will be okay too. If they are afraid, they can give up kissing! : ) I plan to live my life educated, but not fearful!
Lip Stick is not toxic if it was then we would be having Herbal Lipstic but there are no Herbal Lipstick so present lipstick is vegetable color.
I think it's common knowledge that all cosmetics contain chemicals that could be toxic if applied in excess or ingested. It's up to the consumer to educate themselves about what's in the products they're using. I don't believe this poses any real threat as long as the public is aware of the risks involved and uses makeup in moderation.
By the way...doesn't this remind anyone of the plot from that terrible Cat Woman movie with Halle Berry? (Lol)
This all depends what the gloss lipstick is made out of. Most make up contains parabens but I do not know if they are actually "toxic". As a physiologist I have worked with toxic materials, and I know that certain make up brands may contain led or mercury bases but this mainly applies to eye make up imported from China. arab
Yes, whatever you put on your skin absorbs into your bloodstream to an extent, depending on what kind of solvents are in it. So if you want to stay healthier by reducing the amount of toxins going into your body, a good rule of thumb is:
Don't put anything on your skin that you wouldn't eat or drink.
