California Attorney General Requires Warning Label For Brazilian Blowout Product

Thanks to a lawsuit California filed in November against a North Hollywood-based hair product company, their products proven to emit a potentially cancer-causing gas will be properly labeled to warn consumers of the risk.

GIB LLC produces Brazilian Blowout Acai Smoothing Solution and Brazilian Blowout Professional Smoothing Solution, which were labeled as being free of formaldehyde — a carcinogen that can irritate eyes, skin and lungs.

Fortunately, that's going to change and the company has also has to pay $600,000 in fines for failing to notify consumers and hair stylists of the danger the chemicals in the products pose. Attorney General Kamala Harris said in a statement:

"California laws protect consumers and workers and give them fair notice about the health risks associated with the products they use. This settlement requires the company to disclose any hazard so that Californians can make informed choices."

Brazilian Blowout is used as a salon treatment to straighten curly hair, but is it worth using knowing it contains a chemical that may cause cancer?
