The accessory retailer has taken the products off of shelves and if you happen to have one of them in your makeup bag, the FDA advises you stop using them immediately and head straight to Claire’s for a full refund.
On the FDA website, they explained exactly how asbestos could have gotten into the makeup.
“Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that is often found near talc, an ingredient in many cosmetic products. Asbestos however, is a known carcinogen and its health risks are well-documented. During talc mining, if talc mining sites are not selected carefully and steps are taken to purify the talc ore sufficiently, the talc may be contaminated with asbestos.”
Claire’s however is contesting the accusations, assuring customers in a statement on Twitter that their “products are safe” and arguing that the FDA’s test showed “significant errors.”View image on Twitter
