This one is a shocker!
Johnson & Johnson, the company that gives us that wonderful baby smell with their "no more tears" products has been using cancerous chemicals this whole time!!
Dioxane, Quaternium-15, and Formaldehyde!!!
The chemicals are described as:
Dioxane is classified as a probable human carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It is known to be carcinogenic in animals and is suspected to damage the central nervous system, liver and kidneys.
Quaternium-15 is a preservative that kills bacteria by releasing formaldehyde.
Formaldehyde has legitimate uses as both a disinfectant and embalming fluid. Formaldehyde was named a human carcinogen by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in June 2011.
Fortunately, JJ has bucked up and
were probably forced to decided to begin phasing the chemicals out…within the next two years.
But think of how many people have been using these products on their children?? We know people who still use it on themselves! It makes for a great face wash in the shower if you have stubborn eye make-up.
But wow, we'll definitely be telling friends to halt their use until 2014!
No more tears?? Uhm, have you ever been to a funeral??
