L'Oreal USA, Inc. Complaint - Loreal HIP and Nanoparticles
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND -- After purchasing several lip glosses around October of 2008, I began noticing outbreaks on my lips. I seriously thought I had herpes and eventually got tested only to find out that I did not have herpes. Up until now, I thought maybe I had food allergies or something. It eventually went away after I stopped using my old lip glosses. One in particular that I just picked up again was the Loreal HIP lip gloss in Tempting. I wore it just yesterday and today...another "outbreak." I don't think its a coincidence. I even have a strange rash on my wrist, possibly from rubbing my wrist on my mouth. I don't know what it is in the product that's causing these allergic reactions, but I know that I am staying away from their lip gloss and even hesitant to try other liquid products like the gel cream eyeliner. I do own one of their eyeshadows in Brazen which is really bright, but fades immediately if not used with their HIP cream eye crayon which is a cement-like product that will not budge once you apply it.
Overall, Loreal is the company with the greatest number of patents on nanoparticles, which is a new craze in the chemical industry. No one knows the effects of nanoparticles on the human body since they're a relatively new discovery, but everyone wants to use them in their products to "enhance" them. Be weary...
