Halloween is tomorrow and we’ve just heard that certain face paints contain lead, nickel, cobalt, or chromium. These elements can cause neurological problems and are considered dangerous.
“Parents should not have to worry that face paint contains lead and other hazardous substances,” said Lisa Archer, national coordinator of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics at the Breast Cancer Fund and a co-author of the report, “Pretty Scary,” quoted ENS. “Companies are not making the safest products possible for children, even though kids are particularly vulnerable to toxic exposures,” Archer added.
The CDC has urged parents to avoid any paints or cosmetics containing lead or other allergens. They are dangerous for children and should be avoided at all costs.
