New Lipgloss Packaging Can Detect Date Rape Drugs

New Lipgloss Packaging Can Detect Date Rape Drugs

Cosmetics company 2 Love My Lips has created a line of lip glosses which include a card within the packaging that detects GHB and ketamine.

Laura Feinstein

When most young women in American begin college as a freshman they are given a lecture about how to protect themselves from date rape. While most of these tips include environmental awareness and not leaving drinks unattended, a new British company has come up with a way to guarantee you won’t become a victim of tampered cocktails. Cosmetics company 2 Love My Lips has created a iine of lip glosses which include a card within the packaging that detects GHB and ketamine (two of the most commonly used drink sedatives), “so women can test their drinks for date rape drugs”. However, the gloss isn’t 100% foolproof- the tester doesn’t work with drinks that contain certain fruit juices, lactose, oily liqueurs, or tonic water. In addition, it doesn’t detect the presence of Rohypnol (roofies).
