Information About Lead Acetate From Wikipedia

Lead(II) acetate, also known as lead acetate, lead diacetate, plumbous acetate, sugar of lead, lead sugar, salt of Saturn, or Goulard's powder, is a white crystalline chemical compound with a sweet taste. It is made by treating lead(II) oxide with acetic acid. Like other lead compounds, it is toxic. 

Lead acetate is a white crystalline compound of lead with a sweetish taste. Known as “sugar of lead”, it is water-soluble and one of the most bioavailable forms of lead. Similar to other lead compounds, it is very poisonous and soluble in water.

Lead Acetate Solubility

Lead acetate is soluble in water and glycerin. With water it forms the trihydrate, Pb(CH3COO) 3H2O, a colourless or white efflorescent monoclinic crystalline substance.

Lead Acetate in Hair Dye: What You Need to Know [ Video From Dr. Jen Caudle]

Lead Acetate For Grey Hair

Lead acetate is common in hair dyes — particularly, in “progressive” hair dyes. Progressive hair dyes, more commonly used by men, work to cover gray hair gradually. Continued exposure to lead acetate is potentially a serious health concern, and it is time for the FDA to ban its use in hair products.

Information On Lead(II) Acetate From PubChem

Lead acetate appears as a white to gray crystalline solid. Denser than water. Contact may irritate skin, eyes and mucous membranes. May be toxic by inhalation, ingestion, and skin absorption. Used in dyes, waterproofing, insecticides, antifouling paints, hair dyes and many other processes. Read more here.
