We have recently confirmed that one of the ingredients used to manufacture the lipsticks listed above is not consistent with the certificate of analysis provided by our supplier, and is non-compliant with NZ Cosmetic Products Group Standard.

Living Nature purchased an ingredient which we were led to believe was an organic plant material. The ingredient is not consistent with the certificate of analysis provided by our supplier, and in fact contained a synthetic dye called Sudan Red IV (CI26105), prohibited for use in cosmetics.

We have obtained relevant advice from a Toxicologist, and that even if we assume all the lipstick applied is ingested, there is still a very high safety margin. Therefore Living Nature does not consider that the affected Lipsticks may cause injury to any person.

Living Nature has withdrawn these products from New Zealand retail outlets. Should a consumer still feel uncomfortable using any of the above lip products, we will happily exchange your lip product for an alternative Living Nature lipstick of your choice.
