Many people think that asbestos is only in buildings and commercial products. However, many businesses are cutting costs in products by using asbestos in them. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) just found asbestos in children’s talc-based eye shadow.

About Asbestos

Black Make Up Palette And Brush Set 208052 1024x682When the asbestos industry was booming, families of workers were at great risk. Workers often came home with asbestos fibers in their hair, work clothes, and tools. This exposed family members to the toxic substance and increasing their risk of related diseases.
The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) presented a Workers’ Home Contamination Study to Congress that showed “families of asbestos-exposed workers have been at increased risk of pleural, pericardial or peritoneal mesothelioma, lung cancer, cancer of the gastrointestinal tract, and nonmalignant pleural and parenchymal abnormalities as well as asbestosis.”
Occupations that are at high risk for exposure in older buildings include firefighters, contractors, demolition workers, electricians, and plumbers. But, women never even knew their baby powder could contain deadly carcinogens.

Mesothelioma Risk Children’s Makeup

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) during routine testing, the group found asbestos in IQ Toys’ Princess Girl’s All-in-One Deluxe Makeup Palette. Each eye shadow tested had more than 4 million asbestos fiber structures. Every child now runs the risk of developing mesothelioma. The makeup has been pulled from the online store.
This isn’t the first time asbestos has been found in beauty products. Johnson & Johnson has more than 16,000 lawsuits against the company. Women used baby powder for years without knowing that it could cause mesothelioma.
Also, in 2018 Claire’s sold asbestos-laden cosmetics are well.
