Dutch Authorities Discover Asbestos In Make-Up Products

Renewing fears earlier this year in the United States, Dutch regulators have pulled two of Claires make-up products off the shelves because of the presence of asbestos. The move impacted all 32 of Claires stores in the Netherlands.

According to DutchNews.nl, the move came after the Dutch health inspector found 2% to 5% asbestos in a face powder and 0.1 to 2% of the carcinogenic substance in a contouring powder. There is no safe level of exposure to asbestos and therefore even the small concentration could have dire consequences to include mesothelioma. Additionally, because of the extremely long latency period of mesothelioma, those impacted by the make-up may not know the true extent of their injuries for more than 20 years.

The investigation was sparked by the concern that originated in the United States. The article states that "Products containing asbestos are banned in the Netherlands because of the danger to health. The inspectorate has asked the company to withdraw other products made with the same ingredients until further notice."The Paul Law Firm advocates for victims of asbestos-related diseases.
