Toxic Cosmetics – Are You Putting Yourself at Risk?
Dr. Osborne here,
Most brands of make up are extremely toxic. Women using these products on a consistent basis are putting themselves at great health risk. Below you can listen to the interview I recently did with Jay Harper, founder of Red Apple Lipstick. Some of the highlights of the interview include:
- Make up toxicity – how no safety testing is required in manufacturing of make up
- How gluten in lipstick can cause persistent illness in those with gluten sensitivity
- How chemicals in makeup act like estrogen
- The difference in the ingredients of cosmetic products
- How many brands of make up can increase your risk for breast cancer
- What to look for to avoid toxic chemicals in your products

Make-Up Cross Contamination
Many of those going gluten free are overwhelmed by the diet changes that they don’t even think about the possibility of make up and cosmetics creating a problem for gluten exposure. Fact of the matter is, many of these products contain wheat fillers and other grain based ingredients that can contribute to consistent gluten exposure. I have seen patients who were non-responsive to diet changes because of this issue. Remember that men are at just as great of a risk. Kissing can be a source of cross contamination. Make sure that you take the time to look at your products and read the labels to rule out exposure. I strongly recommend going with a cosmetic company that produces make up in small batches in a dedicated grain free facility. You can visit Red Apple here <<<
