Yes, you read that right, and no, it’s not just a catchy title. It’s been estimated that women on average consume about 4 to 9 pounds of lipstick over their lifetime! While this number differs between every makeup user and how often they wear lipstick, it does affect everyone who wears lipstick to some extent. After all, our lipstick doesn’t just evaporate; it gets smudged and eaten!
What’s scarier than the idea of eating lipstick is eating lipstick made with the toxins found in conventional makeup. Lipsticks can contain levels of heavy metals, parabens, and chemicals, and the high ingestion rate of lipstick increases the impact of these toxins. Studies done by research professionals at the University of California, Berkeley tested the use of over 30 lipsticks and lip glosses by young women. What they found was high levels of heavy metals and ingestion. Estimating an average use of lipstick as a twice daily application and heavy use as ten or more daily applications, the Berkeley scientists found that the average lipstick user ingests about 24 milligrams of product a day, with heavy users as much as 87 milligrams a day, equaling to about 1/16 of a pound per year. If you wouldn’t eat toxins and chemicals in your food, don’t put them on your lips!
You don’t have to give up wearing lipstick. Instead, look for brands who pride themselves on top quality products that are also smudge-proof, made to stay on your lips. Conventional tube lipstick is soft, creamy, and easily smudged off your lips and into your mouth. But Beauty Bakerie doesn’t make just your average lipstick.
