Dear Mr Nikitas,
It is not recommended to use Grecian Formula if you have any broken skin on your scalp and there is a product called D-Lead soap [see www.esca-tech.com; Email Address which is recommended for washing your hands after using the Grecian Formula. You can wash down the sink and taps with sugar soap or any other high phosphate detergent or if you want to go phosphate-free, then you can use D-Lead Equipment and All Purpose Cleaner [see contact details above].
If you ask your doctor for a blood lead test you will be able to determine whether you have absorbed some lead either through your skin or by the more usual pathways of ingestion or inhalation. Based on your blood lead level you can ask your doctor to advise whether you should continue to use Grecian Formula or not.
I hope this helps.
Update 2010: see D-Lead Soap Australia
