Little girls often love to play dress-up and put on makeup. To encourage creative play, you may have bought your daughter makeup kits, costume jewelry and princess dresses. Understandably, you also might not have given a second thought about the safety of these products, since children’s items in Connecticut and elsewhere should be safe for those the manufacturer intends them for. However, what would happen if you found out the eye shadow you bought for your little girl had harmful ingredients in it?
This was the case for a mother recently, who had sent some of her daughter’s makeup from Claire’s to a laboratory to test its ingredients. She learned that the cosmetics contained asbestos. Soon after, testing of additional products from stores across numerous states also reportedly came back positive for asbestos, prompting Claire’s to pull nine products from shelves nationwide.
