Episode #10: Heavy Metal Contamination in Cosmetics

Episode #10: Heavy Metal Contamination in Cosmetics

During this episode of Rebel Heart Radio, Genevieve and Cassie discuss the dangers of heavy metals in cosmetics. Did you know that heavy metals like lead, arsenic, mercury, aluminum, zinc, chromium and iron can be found in a wide variety of personal care products including lipstick, whitening toothpaste, eyeliner and mascara? While most companies aren't intentionally adding heavy metals as ingredients [some ARE], heavy metals tag along as contaminants and we're being exposed in our products every single day. In this episode -- we break that all down for you! Specifically, we chat about...

  • lack of regulation in the cosmetics industry

  • green washing in the personal care industry

  • heavy metals found in personal care products

  • health issues linked to exposure to heavy metals

  • which heavy metals are the most concerning

  • how heavy metals make it into cosmetics

  • why we both reach for Beautycounter as consumers when it comes to cosmetics

  • common heavy metal screening practices in the cosmetics industry

  • why it's important to ask companies: if they are testing for heavy metals AND how often and at what point in the manufacturing process
