radioactive beauty

The use of radium in the cosmetics industry during the 1920s and 1930s, an era crazed for radium-based products and radioactivity in general.

Commerically, radium was added to a wide range of products including wool for babies, water dispensers, chocolate, soda water, condoms, toothpaste, cigarettes, cleaning products, boot polish, fertilizers, luminous paints and cosmetics. More, here.
