Asbestos Found In Cosmetics Made For Children

NewsMax reports that Clair’s stores have just pulled several of its children's’ brand cosmetics off its shelves after a customer from Rhode Island discovered that her daughter’s cosmetic kit contained asbestos. Kristina Warner wanted to see what was contained in her daughter’s makeup kit so she sent it in for testing to The Scientific Analytical Institute in Greensboro, North Carolina. No one could have anticipated that the results would come back positive for asbestos.

WPRI-TV reported that after additional testing Claire’s found was done, they found that 17 samples of makeup from Claire's stores in nine different states, including eye shadows, blushes, and compact powders. The frightening number of positive results lends to credence to the idea that this was not an isolated event. Because there are no safe levels of exposure to asbestos, the threat posed to the make-up users is grave. While it is not likely that a child will develop asbestos-related cancer from limited exposure there is still a possibility which should have been entirely avoided.

A representative for Claire’s told WPRI-TV "We work closely with our vendors to ensure our products are tested and assessed in line with the relevant country regulations and guidelines. As a result of today's inquiry from WPRI-TV, we have taken the precautionary measure of pulling the items in question from the sale, and will be conducting an immediate investigation into the alleged issues. Once we have more information and have the results of the investigation, we will take the necessary action."
