Although this article was posted yesterday. I have also included a link to a Facebook chat where other consumers discuss this issue, providing pictures as well. The sad part off all of this for me personally, is that Facebook post was originally started in 2013 am I the only one who has not heard of this issue before. I mean Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian both rep for this product. Mold in my lip balm.NO THANK YOU!! I own at least 10 of these things, I was a huge fan. After checking my own, I to found unknown substances in mine. I thought it was an air bubble, guess again. This is of course my opinion, read the article do a little research and make your own informed decision. Peace fellow Chicks xo
Consumer Rachael Cronin has brought a class action lawsuit against the
brand, alleging that use of the lip balm led to "severe rashes,
bleeding, blistering, cracking and loss of pigmentation" on her lips.

I just did a review on this. I thought dirt from my purse was getting into my lip balm until I saw pictures people posted about it actually being mold! So gross. Will never buy it again.

I saw the post on fb. Have never used this but lots of girls I worked with do or did. Wanted to try it but never did. Glad for that!

I've been using it for a long time and to be honest never had an issue

My teenage daughter has them and she's never had a problem,maybe it has something to do with how you store them,for example not putting the cover back on properly

People these days are just litigation happy. She likely had an allergic reaction to some ingredient.

Thanks for sharing this!

I wonder how much truth there is to it. Someone can have an allergic reaction to something. The only way to truly know would be to test unopened packages. I'll be checking mine though.

Never read the article, will search for it later on, but I have had multiple different EOS balms as has my daughter and neither of us have ever had a problem with blisters, rashes or mold growing ours. Could this maybe have been an allergic reaction for some, or that they are t replacing the lid properly?

Like mentioned before, she probably had an allergic reaction to it, it shouldn't be the product's fault. Looking at the ingredients, there's really nothing that should be harmful to a person, UNLESS you are allergic to things like sunflower seed, jojoba, olives etc.
On the case of mold, it's really to be expected. This product doesn't really have any preservatives, and the ingredients that it is known for (shea butter other oils) go bad faster than other ingredients. These ingredients are super great for your lips, they just go rancid faster than others, it's not a big deal. As the consumer, we can't really stop the expiration of the lip balm unless we stick it in the fridge regularly.
TLDR: The incident was probably an allergic reaction, check what you're allergic to! EOS barely has preservatives, and shea butter goes bad faster than others. Because of this, your lipbalm would grow mold eventually. Nothing to worry about!
