Is your Personal Care, Caring for YOU?
A Cleaner Beauty Future
It’s hard to define which products are healthy enough to use on your body. If you don't follow beauty industry news, you may not have seen the recent studies outlining Proctor & Gambles recall of 18 Secret and Old Spice aerosol spray deodorants after a harmful carcinogen called Benzene was found in over 50% of spray deodorants.
Lets talk ingredients
What is Benzene & Why is it in P&G’s Products?
Benzene is a carcinogen that is known to cause serious and even long term health effects such as numerous cancers, and blood disorders. Though the FDA allows “small levels” of use to be “unavoidable” we at Cleo+Coco believe your skincare and beauty products should be carginon free! You’re probably wondering why P&G has Benzene in their products…and how it was discovered. According to Valisure, an independent lab that conducts small batch testing on popular products, an independent study was conducted and Valisure discovered off the charts benzene levels ranging from fan favorites like Secret and Suave.
So why was Benzene only found in Spray deodorants?
This is not the first (and probably won't be the last time) that benzene has been discovered in aerosol products. Aside from aerosols' harmful impact on the environment and its direct correlation to the emittance of greenhouse gases; aerosol products require a specific type of gas to propel the product from the can….said gases are said to be contaminated with…you guessed it…Benzene!
