It is said that eyes are the mirror to a woman’s soul, and hence women prefer to enhance the look of their eyes by applying kohl or kajal. Applying Kajal gives a pop effect to the eyes making it more attractive and beautiful.

Studies have proven that some types of Kajal available in the market are harmful to the eyes, as they may contain lead which gets absorbed into the body resulting in lead poisoning. Also, if you use the product with uncleaned hands or share the product with others it can result in eye infections.

Eyeliners and kajal sticks which contain only pigmented powder is not harmful to the eyes. So it is important to check the ingredients of the product to make sure that it does not contain any lead. Also, make sure that you do not share the eyeliner or kajal with others to prevent the development of eye infections. Always make sure that you buy a quality brand kajal that does not harm your eyes.
