CSE Study Finds Leading Brands Using Mercury, Chromium And Nickel

New Delhi: Your make-up may be leaving you with a touch of toxic heavy metals, with potential health implications over long-term use. A study by Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) claims to have found high levels of mercury in several well-known national and international brands of skinwhitening creams and chromium in several brands of lipsticks.

Popular cosmetic products, including fairness creams and lipsticks, contain mercury, chromium and nickel, according to a report released by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) here on Wedn

A new study by the NGO Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) on Wednesday said that several popular cosmetics are loaded with toxic heavy metals such as mercury and nickel.

A new study has found mercury in fairness creams and chromium and nickel in lipsticks.

Nickel (Ni) is a natural element of the earth's crust and, therefore, small amounts of it are found in food, water, soil, and air.

Use of cosmetic products is increasing rapidly in India and various chemicals including the heavy metals are used in the cosmetics which pose health risk to consumers. The present study was conducted to determine heavy metals - lead, cadmium, chromium and nickel in lipsticks, lip-balm and anti-ageing creams and mercury in fairness creams available in the Delhi market. The results were compared with the available standards.

New CSE study finds mercury in fairness creams and chromium and nickel in lipsticks. Mercury is not permitted to be used in cosmetics in India – their mere presence in these products is illegal. India has very weak regulations and almost no enforcement, which is why some companies are getting away with flouting the law.

India has made its first ever claim before the International Seabed Authority (ISA) for the exploration of poly-metallic sulphide from the Mauritius seas.

Prior to country's first ever seabed exploration for sulphides, a preliminary study has been completed with the help of the National Centre for Antarctic and Ocean Research (NCAOR) in the Rodriguez Triple Junction, a geologic junction in the southern Indian Ocean where three tectonic plates meet, near Mauritius.
