Lipsticks are easier to get absorbed into your body while we are eating, drinking or simply just talking. It’s important that at least this makeup product is devoid of all the chemicals which could affect your baby. Most lipsticks contain lead even though the amount varies from one brand to other. Lead has been linked to stillbirth and premature birth.

Dr Hauschka skin care products are 100% natural and contain no synthetic ingredients or preservatives of any kind. The ingredients are selected with great care and the products are manufactured at the company’s German facilities.
The products are truly pure – no parabens, no GMOs, no nanoparticles, no lead, no aluminium, no chromium, and definitely no artificial preservatives, colours, fragrances, or any petroleum or synthetic by-products. Just good old fashioned natural ingredients.
All of the brands also produce other makeup products which don’t contain any other harmful ingredients. Ingredient absorption from skin makeup and eye makeup is less since absorption through skin takes time but through the mouth, it’s very direct. Therefore, it’s important that you at least substitute your lipstick with natural/lead-free ones.
