No One Knows How Many of the World’s Skin-Lightening Creams Are Tainted With Mercury
 
Tests keep turning up the toxic element, even in products the manufacturers claim are safe.
 
 
The $5 jar, labeled Goree Beauty Cream with Lycopene, registered 23,000 parts per million of mercury, according to the XRF. A mere 1ppm is considered dangerous. In a second test, a jar labeled Goree Day & Night Whitening Cream measured 19,900ppm.
 
 Mercury’s poisonous properties are legendary: In Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter is mad—as in insane—because a common milliner’s mercury compound presumably ravaged his nervous system.
 
Yet hundreds of millions of women, and a growing number of men, are literally bathing in the stuff.
