Carcinogenic Found in Baby Shampoo
Shocking! The Carcinogenic Found In Baby Shampoo
Let’s say you run a company that makes shampoo. But not just any shampoo, it’s specifically for new-borns and infants.
But now you need to find a way to prevent spoilage. (Shampoo spoils? Who knew?)
Fortunately, there’s a chemical called quaternium-15 that takes care of spoilage. But it has just one little problem: It kills bacteria by releasing formaldehyde.
And formaldehyde is carcinogenic.
In a BABY shampoo?
Well… that’s the decision you and I would make at OUR shampoo company.
At some point, a similar discussion must have occurred long ago in the offices of Johnson & Johnson. And apparently, that discussion ended something like this: “Sure. Let’s use the quaternium-15.”
And for that, J&J was recently singled out for a public scolding… and who gave it to them? Officials in China.
Yes… China — the country that’s produced milk and baby formula containing melamine, the country that exports honey laced with illegal antibiotics and heavy metals, and the country that makes toothpaste with just a pinch of a chemical used in antifreeze.
THAT’S the country that drew a line in the sand and told J&J, “Enough!”
“Responsible businesses should have ‘moral blood’ flowing in their veins.”
That was one of the rebukes that Xinhua, China’s government news agency, directed at J&J. And it came with this observation: “If you conduct a market survey, it is obviously very difficult to find consumers who could accept products containing carcinogens.”
Agreed, Xinhua — I believe the outcome on the carcinogen question would be unanimous.
Well… among consumers, anyway.
This may sound insane to you and me, but J&J executives claim they’re just operating within accepted limits.
From a J&J statement: “The preservative technologies we use are safe and approved by authorities in the European Union and in the United States, as well as in China and India.”
It’s like a pout from a little child: “Everybody TOLD us it was okay. Yeah — including YOU, China.”
But that statement — in response to an earlier scolding from the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics (CSC) — claims the company is taking “significant steps” to reformulate.
J&J: “We have been phasing out formaldehyde releaser preservatives from our baby products.”
Phasing out? Are we supposed to be impressed!? Don’t “phase out” preservatives that create carcinogens, J&J. ELIMINATE those preservatives! Immediately!
Meanwhile, they try to smooth it over with this absurd claim: “We have not seen any evidence of allergy in hundreds of millions of real life uses of these products.”
CSC brought up the allergy issue along with the carcinogen problem. And of course, J&J knows absolutely that an allergic reaction is NOT the important issue here. But nowhere in the J&J statement will you find the words “cancer” or “carcinogen.” No way they’re going to go on record connecting those words to their baby shampoo.
The J&J statement finishes with this: “Our goal is to provide parents and their babies with safe, gentle, mild products that they can trust and use with confidence.”
Sorry, J&J — you missed your goal by a Chinese mile.

…and another thing
Your bathroom probably contains more chemicals than a college chemistry lab.
According to Chemical Safe Skincare (CSC), “The average woman uses 12 toiletries every day and applies more than 175 chemical compounds to her body in the process.”
All of those compounds aren’t toxic, of course, but some of them very likely have toxic qualities. Still, you have to wonder about the safety of all the ingredients that go into the thousands of cosmetic and bath products that line the aisles of supermarkets and pharmacies.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) can help with that. EWG is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to protecting public health.
I highly recommend one of EWG’s free resources called EWG Skin Deep (ewg.org/skindeep). This is an exhaustive database that rates the safety of more than 69,000 products that include cosmetics, hair and skin care products, deodorants, oral care, fragrances, and many products for children.
Keep in mind that no one requires companies that produce cosmetics and other personal care products to fully list product contents. EWG fills in this gap with information that will help you avoid daily contact with formaldehyde and other nasty chemicals that should never come into contact with your skin.
