Asbestos has been found in a variety of beauty products from Justice Stores.

The Just Shine Shimmer Powder has tested positive for asbestos, which is a poisonous substance when ingested and is potentially deadly.

Good Housekeeping has reported that scientists at the Scientific Analytical Institute in Greensboro, North Carolina tested the products and discovered the asbestos in the talc used to create the shimmer powder.

Talc is a clay-based mineral that's commonly used in makeup to give powdered products their texture. 

The mineral is usually tested for asbestos before being used in any sort of beauty processes but no one is sure how this contaminated talc slipped through the system.

Justice Stores have released a statement regarding the shimmer powder and said that they have started their own investigation into the matter.

"Justice is committed to the safety and integrity of our products.

"Upon receiving the inquiry from WTVD, we immediately began an independent investigation.

"We cannot speculate regarding the matter until we have more information. 

"Nonetheless, out of an abundance of caution, we have stopped the sale of this product while we investigate."

The Just Shine Shimmer Powder has now been recalled and anyone who is currently using the product should dispose of it and seek medical attention.
