Lips Against Lead

We the Teens for Safe Cosmetics have created this visual petition as part of our efforts to BAN LEAD IN LIPSTICK. In 2007, the National Campaign for Safe Cosmetics released a study that found lipsticks from many top brands contained lead. Two thirds of the 33 samples tested contained detectable levels of lead; of those, half were above the lead limit for candy. Exposure to lead can cause brain damage, learning, language and behavioral problems and has also been linked to miscarriages, reduced fertility, hormonal changes and delays in the onset of puberty. Lipstick that contains lead applied several times a day, every day is toxic! Every pair of lips that kisses this petition will wear lead free lipstick because LIPSTICK SHOULD NOT CONTAIN LEAD. Each kiss represents an individual supporting legislation to BAN LEAD IN LIPSTICK permanently. We should not have to choose beauty over health. Please sign our online petition to show your vote and support the ban of lead in lipstick
