Is mercury lurking in your beauty products?

Mercury can cause serious health problems. Yet, some beauty products contain it. Is mercury in your beauty products- Ask your Charlotte Dermatologist

How will you know if mercury’s in the cosmetic, especially one that’s marketed as “anti-aging” or “skin lightening”? Check the label. If the words “mercurous chloride,” “calomel,” “mercuric,” “mercurio,” or “mercury” are listed on the label, mercury’s in it—and you should stop using the product immediately.

The products are usually marketed as skin lighteners and anti-aging treatments that remove age spots, freckles, blemishes, and wrinkles. Adolescents may use these products as acne treatments.

Here are some ways you can find out whether any of your products contain mercury.
