Sodium Benzoate in Pantene Pro-V linked to cancer, organ system toxicity, irritation to eyes...
Blog post posted by Natural Skincare Authority on January 27, 2010 at 9:35pm
Today we are continuing our quest to know more about the ingredients of Pantene Pro-V Always Smooth Shampoo and looking into the more important topic of why unsafe products are being so successfully marketed to consumers, and why we keep buying them!
Sodium Benzoate is another chemical which is an irritant to the eyes (and skin and lungs), among many other serious effects. This chemical performs the tasks of fragrance, preservative and even anti-corrosive. The other risks for this chemical include the following:
* links to cancer
* linked to toxicity of the developmental, reproductive, brain and organ systems
* possible biochemical or cellular level changes, and
* interrupts the body's natural hormones and chemicals carrying messages around the body.
Looking at these effects, this chemical has the potential to be a very serious human health threat. It is again very concerning to find that this is not considered a hazardous chemical by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review of the FDA. It is was, it would not be allowed in consumer products.
A useful ingredient in your shampoo? It may provide fragrance, preserve all the other chemicals or ensure the product against corrosion, but is it necessary, or even useful, in cleaning hair?
We will continue our quest tomorrow...
