"The peer-reviewed study, published in Environmental Science & Technology, detected what the study’s authors characterized as “high” levels of organic fluorine, an indicator of PFAS, in over half of 231 makeup and personal care samples. That includes lipstick, eyeliner, mascara, foundation, concealer, lip balm, blush, nail polish and more.
The products that most frequently contain high levels of fluorine include waterproof mascara (82% of brands tested), foundations (63%) and liquid lipstick (62%). (Perkins T. 2021)
I have been tracking these issues for years. Read this article and then get ready for the 2 upcoming podcasts with
Dr. Randy Jirtle on the field of epigenetics and then the discussion with Ken Cook the President of the Environmental Working Group and Dr. John Wear, a professor and the executive director of the Center for the Environment at Catawba College.These podcasts will lay the framework for further understanding the world of chemicals and disease. How are chemicals affecting us as humans, mothers and children? What should we do to protect ourselves?
