I've used this stuff for years, but read recently it can be harmful for eyes and may even contain traces of lead. I use stuff sent to me from KSA and Pakistan...In north Africa, it is said that kohl is good for the eyes and can help prevent infections...does someone know more about this? I have found no scientific research results about this....thanks

Old school kohl is made from lead sulfide. I would think that the stuff you use, if you buy it from a semi-legit source, is made with another substance. Check the ingredients if it has any.
Obviously, lead isn't thought to be good for you. Percentages of lead differ in products, but generally, it might not be catastrophically bad for you, but it also cannot help.
