Lead | Naturalpedia



Lead may be naturally occurring but it has no place in our products.  Young children are particularly impacted by this toxic metal as it can cause brain and nervous system development problems.  In adults, there is a risk of kidney damage and increased blood pressure.  This is why lead is on our Red List and banned from cosmetic use in Canada.  Our bodies absorb anywhere between 21 and 100% of what we put on it so you’ll never find toxins such as lead in our products.
