Lipstick contains pearl pigment, will it be harmful to the body?

Lipsticks are cosmetics for lips, and they are strictly controlled in China. Products with regular pearl pigments, according to our daily use, will definitely not affect our body. However, color-changing lipsticks and lipsticks with bromate dyes are not recommended for long-term use.

The basic structure of lipsticks is similar to that of lipsticks. They are mainly composed of waxes and oils. Similar to these ingredients, there are many foods. Everyone is concerned about the problems of heavy metals, color-changing lipsticks, and non-stick lipsticks, which will be analyzed later.

With the continuous update and reform of pigments and formulas, in 1915, the tube-shaped lipstick container appeared, and the industrialization of credit lipstick began.

Modern women, in addition to one piece of clothing is always missing in their wardrobe, women's dressing table is often missing a lipstick. It is estimated that 80% of women in North America and Europe use lipstick regularly, and more than 30% of adult women have 20 lipsticks. lipstick.

As a female beautician, I can analyze the ingredients and efficacy of cosmetics, and many friends are concerned about the ingredients and safety of lipsticks. In this article, I will explain some lip colors of all colors with you.

1. The main components of lipstick

The types of lipsticks can be divided into moisturizing lipsticks, satin lipsticks, matte lipsticks, cream lipsticks, pearl frosted lipsticks, lip glazes, and long-lasting lipsticks.

The main components include: colorants, fillers, greases, waxes, lubricants, actives, preservatives, etc.

Waxes: Provide structural strength to lip balms and allow lip balms to be formed into solids, available in both vegetable and petroleum sources.

Grease: Disperses pigments and lubricates, most of the feeling of use is related to grease, upper lip, delivers product softness and luster to the skin There are vegetable oils, mineral oils and synthetic oils.

Pigment (colorant): The core part of the lipstick color, giving the lips the desired color.

Active substances: anti-irritant, lip repairing, anti-aging, nutrient, sunscreen, etc.

Preservatives: used for preservation and preservatives.

2. The safety of lipstick.

The lips are very close to the mouth, and the lipstick can easily enter the human body with saliva and food. Therefore, the pearl pigment and mica pigment used in the lipstick are extremely strict and edible.

Basic oils and waxes rarely contain metals. The pigments of lipsticks are organic metal lakes or mineral sources, and there is a risk of heavy metal pollution. However, the heavy metal content of colorants is strictly regulated in various countries, as long as it is a regular manufacturer. All products are safe to use.

3. What's up with the "non-stick cup" lipstick?

The reason why the lipstick does not stick to the cup is because the core point in the research and development process is to add more volatile silicone oil to the formula, and adjust the ratio of grease and wax. After the lipstick is applied to the lips, the silicone is volatilized, and the film-forming agent is covered. The lower pigment is more suitable for the skin of the lips. In addition, a large amount of silicone oil control oil improves the hydrophobicity of the lipstick. After use, the water resistance is very good, so it is not easy to stick to the cup.

Since the volatile silicone oil "dries" quickly, most non-stick lipsticks are designed to be matte and matte, which can be understood by friends who have used them.

Therefore, the non-stick lipstick has nothing to do with the quality of the product and heavy metals. It is just a metaphor for a lipstick that is not easy to take off makeup. How to choose it is purely based on personal preference. Those who frame other types of lipsticks as a selling point are not good. The remarks are just the obscenity of some businesses.

4. What is the principle of color changing lipstick?

In recent years, color-changing lipsticks have also been on fire for a while, especially in a certain business district. The principle of color-changing lipstick is actually the colorant - bromine acid dye. The common bromine acid dye is tetrabromofluorescein, also known as "eosin red". The lipstick or mouth is orange in color and can be made into a transparent color-changing lipstick. When applied to the lips, due to the pH of the lips. It becomes bright red, plus the temperature of the individual lips, the background color and the amount of smear are different, which constitutes the phenomenon of "thousands of people and one thousand colors".

Bromic acid dye is a discoloration phenomenon that occurs after the action of the lip tissue, and the color ratio is firm and durable.
