My child ate Chapstick or lipstick. Are lip products toxic?
Lip products are considered nontoxic in small amounts. Ingredients in lip products vary between the type and brand, but may include oils, waxes, perfumes, coloring agents, pigments, lanolin, antioxidants, preservatives and emulsifying agents.
Lip products may cause irritation if exposed to eyes.
If your child got lip products in their eyes, rinse by pouring clean, lukewarm water across the affected eye(s) for 15 minutes.
For more instructions, please see our page on eye exposure information.
