Why Test for Asbestos in Cosmetics?

Asbestos is a substance with a fibrous crystalline structure containing oxides of magnesium, iron, aluminum, sodium and bound silica.

Asbestos itself is not toxic; its greatest danger comes from its fine fibers, which when inhaled or ingested can lead to serious health risks, including lung cancer and mesothelioma. Asbestos has been confirmed as a carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

Asbestos was not intentionally added to cosmetics or other products such as baby talcum powder. However, asbestos can be found naturally in talcum powder. Talc is a substance commonly added to glitter, shimmer and powdered cosmetic products.

While many countries ban the use of asbestos in cosmetics, verifying the absence of asbestos is essential to ensure consumer safety and compliance with regulatory requirements.
