Lead in Lipstick?

  1. Mother is always paranoid about getting cancer and other health problems so pretty much everyday she introduces to us new facts (i.e. broccoli helps reduce your risk of getting cancer). A few days ago she told me that she heard from a doctor on a radio show that ALL lipsticks contain traces of lead. She goes on to say that no lipsticks can be made without lead. I want some evidence supporting whether this is true or not.

    Take it away folks!
