Wash that cancer right into your hair!

Something that people need to know about- not because it's just one brand, but because you need to investigate ALL the products you use on your delicate children!!! Visit the Skin Deep Database for information on thousands of consumer products and toiletries and the ingredients that are commonly used in them. Another good site for information is The Environmental Working Groups site- for info on sunscreen, chemicals and environmental concerns.

If you purchased Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Shampoo or Wal-Mart brand Equate Tearless Baby Wash, you may want to stop using it. A class action lawsuit has been approved this month that claims these products may contain a toxin linked to cancer.

The class action lawsuit, filed earlier this year, accuses Johnson & Johnson and Wal-Mart Stores of selling shampoo and baby wash that allegedly contains methylene chloride, an ingredient banned by the FDA in cosmetics because it’s linked to cancer. The law firm that filed the lawsuit is also investigating Target’s Night-time Bath and Body Wash, which is not currently named in the suit.

A third Johnson & Johnson plant is now also under investigation for alleged quality concerns. The new Johnson & Johnson plant is one that manufactures Pepcid and Mylanta among other products. You can read the details on that investigation at Legafi.
