The screams in the stadium could be heard far and wide when this was announced...because WE. HAVE. MAKEUP!!! This makeup line is already tried and true because Young Living has acquired the two-year- old well beloved makeup company of Young Living Crown Diamond, Melissa Poepping. It has been specially crafted it without fillers, synthetics, or parabens, making it a great make-up line for sensitive skin.
"Lipsticks and lip glosses contain lead, cadmium, chromium, aluminum, and five other toxic metals, some are at levels that could raise potential health concerns, according to a new U.S. study."
The research was conducted by experts from the University of California, Berkeley's School of Public Health who analyzed 32 different lipsticks and glosses commonly sold in drugstores and department stores. S. Katharine Hammond, study author and professor of environmental health sciences, said:
"Just finding these metals isn't the issue; it's the levels that matter. Some of the toxic metals are occurring at levels that could possibly have an effect in the long term."
"High use of these cosmetics could lead to overexposure to cadmium, aluminum, and manganese as well, and exposure to high concentrations of manganese over time has been associated with toxicity in the nervous system." via Courtney Critz
