Skin products tainted with mercury
Linda Katz, director FDA’s Office of Cosmetics and Colors. “FDA does not allow mercury in drugs or in cosmetics, except under very specific conditions, which these products do not meet.” Mercury is highly toxic and exposure at high levels can cause damage to the brain and kidneys according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). “Exposure to mercury can have serious health consequences,” says Dr, Charles Lee, a senior medical advisor at the FDA. “It can damage the kidneys and the nervous system, and interfere with the development of the brain in unborn children and very young children.” Even short-term exposure, the CDC says, can cause lung damage, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, increases in blood pressure or heart rate, skin rashes, and eye irritation. So far Texas, California, Virginia, Maryland, Minnesota, Illinois and New York have all reported cases of elevated mercury levels in skin care products. The Agency says consumers should check product labels for mercurous chloride, calomel.
