In today’s post, I have put together a list of 7 best lead-free makeup brands available out there. Unfortunately, lead is a very common ingredient in makeup, especially in lipsticks that are red in colour. Lead is a highly toxic chemical that can affect the organs in the body in many harmful ways. While trace amounts of lead in makeup are safe for use, it is ideal to avoid putting your body in contact with lead altogether. Whether you like to believe it or not, several studies have shown that some of the most popular and well-loved makeup brands around the world have lead as a common ingredient in their lipsticks. And, what is most alarming about this fact is that lead is not even a necessary ingredient in makeup!
