Claire's Scare Revives Concerns About Asbestos-Tainted Kids' Cosmetics

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

Another retailer of cosmetics aimed at girls, Claire's, faces allegations of asbestos-contaminated makeup products, less than six months after tweens-focused Justice came under similar fire. Both retailers say their own independent testing showed products in question to be asbestos-free, but the PR damage may be done.
