Why Cancer-Causing Toxins Found In Claire's Makeup Is No Surprise

According to Business Insider last week, small trace amounts of asbestos — a known cancer causer — was found in concealer and sparkly makeup marketed to kids at Claire's.

They explain, "In March, Claire's also voluntarily recalled some of its eye shadow and face powder after asbestos was found in those products as well." But their findings may not be a surprise because the US beauty industry is reportedly rarely regulated.

The U.S. hasn't had new cosmetic regulations in over 80 years.
