How We Con­ducted the Test

Consumer Voice - - Arsenic On The Lips And Lead In The Eyes -

BIS has spec­i­fied stan­dards for beauty prod­ucts even though they do not come un­der manda­tory cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. We as­sessed the brands of lip­sticks as per IS: 9875:1990 and ka­jal as per IS: 15154:2002. We used the ICP-MS method to de­tect the pres­ence of lead and ar­senic in the prod­ucts.
