Class action over lead in lipstick Class actions against a top producer of women’s perfumes and make-up has been provided the green light to proceed in the usa. The legal action is against the major luxury goods company giant LVMH and concerns lipstick created for Dior which has been found to consist of unacceptably high degrees of business lead. Dior’s Addict Positive Crimson lipstick apparently contains double the safe level of lead and reaches the center of the case but is in no way the only culprit. The high lead amounts were revealed pursuing scientific investigations in October last year with respect to the U.S.In addition, simultaneously its lead author, Christopher De Rosa, was removed from the position he held since 1992. The Center for Public Integrity really wants to understand why. The study is called ‘Public Wellness Implications of Hazardous Substances in Twenty-Six U.S. Great Lakes Regions of Concern.’ It had been produced by the CDC’s Company for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry in response to a request by the International Joint Commission . The report combines two pieces of data: environmental data on known ‘regions of concern’ and health data collected by county and occasionally smaller geographical regions. The scholarly study will not try to address cause and effect. Instead, it shows areas for more data and research collection with the link between pollution and wellness.
