Official List Of Cancer Causing Shampoos Released By Center For Environmental Health

The Center for Environmental Health in Oakland, California released the results of a study that found a number of common soaps and shampoos may be dangerous. Some 98 products contained deadly carcinogens and reproductive toxins that could put your health at serious risk.

"Most people believe that products sold in major stores are tested for safety, but consumers need to know that they could be doused with a cancer-causing chemical every time they shower or shampoo," warns CEH executive director Michael Green. "We expect companies to take swift action to end this unnecessary risk to our children’s and families’ health.”

One of the most shocking finds was that some brands aimed at kids contained dangerous chemicals. Kid’s Bubble Bath (Bubble Gum Scent) from Little Ones/Kmart, “Ricitos de Oro” Chamomile Baby Shampoo from Grisi, Lalaloopsy Cotton Candy Bubble Bath
by Lalaloopsy, Super Minty Soapy Suds Body wash + Bubbling Bath by Bliss, 2 in1 Shampoo and Conditioner from Toys R Us and Despicable Me Hand Wash (tickled pink rose bonbon) by Delon Laboratories are all among products that parents may use daily on their children.

A lot of discount store products and inexpensive store brands from stores like CVS, Kmart, Walmart, Trader Joes, TJ Maxx and 99 Cent Only Stores had numerous brands make the list.

If you thought shopping at department stores like Ross, JC Penny, Macy's, Sears or Target were going to keep you safe, think again. Common popular brands like Prell, Herbal Essence, Fantasia, African Essence and Paul Mitchell products were found to contain dangerous chemicals.

Some common toxic ingredients you should avoid include Sodium Lauryl Sulfate/Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Triclosan, Dimethicone, Behentrimonium Chloride and Quaternium-15. Also, keep in mind that generic ingredients like 'fragrance' are usually suspect; there are chemicals in the fragrance, but not listing it on the package may mean there's something to hide.
