Date Rape Drug-Testing Kit Contained in Lip Gloss

Posted on Oct 16, 2009 at 5:24AM

Okay, Mother Blogger was a little aghast when this date-rape drug testing lip gloss came across her desk, but The Working Girl said date rape is a rampant problem and this beauty product weapon might save a woman from sexual assaultpicture of a woman in hair rollers and lip gloss

It's a sad reality of the modern-day social scene: if a woman takes her eyes off her drink for just a moment, it gives her date or a stranger the opportunity to spike that drink with a tasteless, odorless drug that could leave her more vulnerable to assault. The most effective prevention is attentiveness, but a new cosmetics company is now offering women an unexpected weapon: lip gloss.

2 Love My Lips is much more than just a minty, plumping gloss—it's also a drug-testing kit. Each of the five flattering shades comes equipped with a simple strip treated to detect gamma hydroxy butyrate (GHB) and ketamine, which are notorious date-rape drugs.

If a woman is concerned that someone may have tampered with her drink, she can dip her finger or straw in the liquid—it works with most alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages—and place a drop onto the strip. If GHB or ketamine is present—it cannot currently detect Rohypnol (Roofies)—it will turn dark blue within a few seconds.

"Through personal experience and those of my close friends, I identified a need for such a product," explains British brand founder Tracy Whittaker, "so [I] set about researching drink-spiking drugs and what type of testing kit I could put in a lip gloss pack alongside developing the perfect lip gloss for a glitzy night out."

Although the glamour of lip gloss doesn't naturally correlate with the graveness of sexual assault, Whittaker's unconventional concept could turn out to be an unexpected impetus for the decline of drug-related rapes.

2 Love My Lips was just launched in the UK, and is expected to become available in the US and Australia in the near future. Find out more at 2lovemylips.co.uk

Have a safe and happy weekend,

Mother Blogger
