Johnson & Johnson baby shampoos contain carcinogens

Johnson & Johnson baby shampoos contain carcinogens. 45778.jpegCarcinogenic substances were found in children's shampoos by Johnson & Johnson. The lab research of the goods was conducted under the order from US-based non-commercial association Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.

The independent laboratory analyzed a series of cosmetic products for children produced by Johnson & Johnson.

Dioxane and quaternium-15 were found in Johnson's Baby and Johnson's Baby Wheat Extract shampoos as well as in Johnson's Baby bubble bath, Independent News Bureau said.

Dioxane is a potentially carcinogenic substance. Quaternium-15 is an antibacterial additive, which emits formaldehyde. The latter is internationally recognized as a carcinogen.

Having received the results of the analysis, spokespeople for the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics addressed the administration of Johnson & Johnson. The specialists asked the company to refuse from the use of the above-mentioned substances in the cosmetic products for children, Medikforum.ru website said.

The administration of the cosmetic giant promised to reduce the content of the dangerous substances in the products to undetectable levels. Company officials also said that they would subsequently refuse from their use in children's cosmetics entirely, Pravda.Ru reports.
