Nearly 100 Shampoo Brands Contain Illegal Cancer-Causing Chemicals

How toxic can be your shampoo? More than you can even think. It could not only cause tears, but it can lead to many serious diseases.

The Center for Environmental Health in California conducted a study on soaps and shampoos, and it was found that 98% of the products contain cocamide diethanolamine.

Four manufacturers of personal care products were charged for the presence of this substance into their products. In California, Proposition 65 requires that the manufacturers should warn the consumers of the risk of some substances. One such substance is cocamide DEA, a highly dangerous carcinogen. It was even prohibited because it caused cancer in laboratory animals.

Some of the well-known companies manufacture products with high levels of illegal chemicals such as Paul Mitchell, Palmolive and Prell. This carcinogen is even found in products for children care, such as Kmart’s bubble bath and the shampoo from Babies R Us. Other brands that contain this particular carcinogen include Walmart, Trader Joe’s and Kohl’s.

FDA allows different chemicals to be used in products, so these manufacturers are free to put different chemicals into their shampoos, even chemicals that lead to nervous system disorders and liver failure.

Corporate America Does Not Protect Your Health

Here is a list of 98 products which contain this carcinogen. Because of the last year’s lawsuit, only three companies decided to reformulate their products.

The fact that most of the companies are aware that their products contain harmful chemicals and yet they continue to sell them, says a lot about the morals of the corporate industry. They are more interested in the profit rather than the health of their consumers. However, many of these CEOs and top executives are closely related to the Big Pharmaceutical stock so, they only strive for more money.
