    [h=1]Mercury found in lotions and cosmetics, says FDA[/h]LINDSAY GOLDWERT

    Wednesday, March 07, 2012

    Women are being warned to stay away from beauty products that contain a toxic ingredient — mercury.

    The ingredient has been found in skin-care products, soaps and cosmetics in stores that tend to cater to Latino, African-American, Asian and Middle Eastern communities.

    The FDA has counted 35 potentially poisonous products, which include goods made by the brands Diana, Stillman’s, Lusco and Crema Aguamary, that are manufactured abroad and sold illegally in the U.S. They may claim to lighten skin, cure acne and reduce wrinkles.
