Did You Know: “EWG scientists recently found more than 4 million asbestos fiber structures in a single gram of a talc-containing eyeshadow. Exposure to even small amounts of asbestos can cause grave, often fatal, illnesses like cancer.
Asbestos fibers are a common contaminant of talc, and based on EWG’s Skin Deep® database, there are more than 2,000 cosmetics and personal care products containing talc. But there are no federal requirements to test cosmetics for asbestos, so we have no way of knowing for sure how many of those products may be contaminated!”
For more information on this and other important items please go to the Environmental Working Group (EWG).
