Part 3 in series: FDA Doesn't Regulate Shampoos & Conditioners – Dioxane – Post 26

FDA Doesn’t Regulate Shampoos & Conditioners – Dioxane

You have now seen the first 2 of the most common chemicals found in personalt care products. Lets take a look at the next one:

Alright , we have seen the first 2 of the most common chemicals found in personal care products.
·         Dioxane – This toxic chemical was one of over 200 carcinogens linked to breast cancer in 2007 in the medical journal, Cancer. This link to cancer was reported as early as 1965, yet it is still found in personal care products today – for both adults and children!
In 1985, the FDA requested a voluntary limit of dioxane in products of 10 parts per million, but that hasn’t happened. 
REMEMBER, your skin cannot protect you against these toxins.  It is NOT a barrier to entry as many of the medical patches have proven for years.  And toxins in your shampoo and conditioner could well be MORE toxic than what is in your food.
