Toxic Toiletries...

It seems ironic that raw ingredient containers showing warning labels and the "skull and crossbones" symbols of potentially harmful ingredients, are still commonly used in personal care products such as shampoo, baby bath, cosmetics, lotions, treatments, etc. 

So why do they use such ingredients in our personal care products if they have been documented to be harmful? Mainly because they are cheap.

*  Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS)
Found in shampoos, hair conditioners, toothpaste's, body washes.  Strong detergent which can cause eye irritation, permanent damage to the eyes, especially in children, skin rashes, hair loss, flaking skin and mouth ulceration.

When combined with other ingredients, can form nitrosamines, which are carcinogenic.  Easily penetrates the skin and can lodge itself in the heart, lungs, liver and brain.

Industrial Use
     1.  Harsh Floor Cleaners
     2.  Engine Degreasers
     3.  Car Wash Detergents
     4.  Laundry Detergents

Personal Care Products
     1.  Toothpaste

SLS can damage the immune system; causing separation of skin layers and inflammation of skin. -Journal of the American College of Toxicology; Vol. 2, No. 7, 1983

SLS penetrates into the skin and into the eyes, and is also held in the brain, heart and liver. A single drop stays in the brain and body for a few days - Doctor's worry: Is your baby safe? -By David L. Kern, New health and longevity

SLS is a mutagen. It is capable of changing the information in genetic material found in cells. SLS has been used in studies to induce mutagen in bacteria. -Higuchi, Araya and Higuchi, school of medicine, Tohoku University: Sendai 980 Japan

SLS is a potent carcinogen when contaminated with any nitrosamines. -FDA Report 1978

Material Safety Data Sheet (SLS)

*  Fluoride

On a tube of toothpaste that is supplied abroad, there is the following warning in bold faced capitals


o   "Fluoride is linked to 10,000 cancer deaths yearly.
           Flouridation is also responsible for 40 million cases
           of arthritis, dental deformity in 8 million children and
           allergic reactions in 2 million people." -Dr. Dean
           Burke and Dr. John Yiamouyiannis, National Cancer
           Institute, USA, 1997

o   "Research from St. Louis University, the Nippon (Japan)
          Dental College and the University of Texas show that
          fluoride has the ability to induce tumors, cause cancers
          and stimulate tumor growth rates." -from Spotlight,
          May 1992

o   "The NTP (National Toxicology Program) tests confirmed
          what the Burke - Yiamouyiannis tests showed - fluoride
          is carcinogenic. Flouride causes bone cancer and
          increases the rate of oral cancer." -from Spotlight,
          May 1992

The Toxic Toothpaste -
The Times Newspaper

*  Propylene Glycol (PG)
Material Safety Data Sheets warn users to avoid skin contact with this substance, and protective clothing should be worn at all times.  It is the cosmetic form of mineral oil found in automatic break fluid, hydraulic fluid and industrial antifreeze, yet is also found in make-up, hair and skin care products, deodorants, and aftershave.

Industrial Use
     1.  Anti-Freeze
     2.  Paint
     3.  Floor Wax

Personal Care Products
     1.  Shampoos
     2.  Hair Conditioners
     3.  Hand and Body Lotions
     4.  Skin and Beauty Creams
     5.  Deodorants

     o   Implicated in contact dermatitis, kidney damage and
          liver abnormalities; can inhibit cell growth in human tests
          and can damage membranes causing rashes, dry skin
          and surface damage. -From Material Safety Data Sheets

"why a dollop of the wife's moisturiser makes light work of removing paint."  "research has revealed that what may look like an innocent tube of white cream could in fact have unforeseen circumstances"  Daily Mail, October 14th 1999.

o   Propylene Glycol causes significant number of reactions
          and was a primary irritant to the skin in low levels of
          concentrations. -The American Academy of
          Dermatologists Inc, Jan 1991

o   May be harmful by inhalation, ingestion or skin absorption.

o   May cause eye irritation. Exposure can cause
          gastro-intestinal disturbances, nausea, headache and
          vomiting, central nervous system depression. -From
          Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)

*  Talc
This is found in baby powders, face powders, body powders as well as some contraceptives such as condoms.  Talc is a known carcinogen and is a major cause of ovarian cancer when used in the genital area.  It can be harmful if inhaled as it can lodge in the lungs, causing respiratory disorders.

*  Isopropyl
This is a poisonous solvent and denaturant (alters the structure of other chemicals) and can be found in hand lotions, body rubs, hair colour rinses, fragrances and aftershave lotions.  Isopropyl dries hair and skin, creates cracks and fissures in the skin, which encourages bacterial growth and can cause headaches, flushing, nausea, vomiting and depression.

*  Imidazolidinyl urea and DMDM

These formaldehyde-forming preservatives can cause joint pain, allergies, depression, headaches, chest pain, chronic fatigue, dizziness, insomnia and asthma.  Can also weaken the immune system and even cause cancer.  Found in skin, body and hair products, antiperspirants and nail polish.

*  Alcohol
This is a colourless, volatile, flammable liquid that is frequently used in beverages and medicine.  When it is used in ingestible products it may cause the body to be more vulnerable to carcinogens.

Mouthwashes that have an alcohol content of 25% or more have been implicated in mouth, tongue and throat cancers.

"Most popular mouthwash brands have a higher alcohol content than beer or wine and that can be dangerous, even deadly to small children that accidentally swallow mouthwash, now that's according to the Non-prescription Drug Manufacturers Association".  "Many of the top selling mouthwash brands have between 12.5% and 27% alcohol.  Now in alcohol terms that's from 25-54% proof."

*  Petrolatum & Mineral Oil
This is used industrially as a petroleum based grease component and is also known as liquid vaseline, mineral oil jelly, baby oil and paraffinum liquidum.  This substance strips the natural oils from the skin and forms an oily film over the skin, which prohibits the release of toxins in the same way as Mineral Oil does.  It can also cause photosensitivity, chapping, dryness and premature ageing.   

"Mineral Oil has a tendency to dissolve the skin's own natural oil and thereby increase dehydration.  Mineral Oils have been found to be probably the single greatest cause of breakouts in women who use a new product."  Deborah Chase, 'The New Medically-Based No-Nonsense Beauty Book, 1989.
