do we use 1,4-Dioxane?

March 12, 2009

I found this in my inbox today from the Organic Consumer Association.

the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) released a new study that exposes levels of the petrochemical carcinogen 1,4-Dioxane in leading conventional as well as “natural” brands of personal care and household cleaning products. This cancer-causing contaminant is all too frequently found in products directly applied to the skin, but it is not listed on ingredient labels, making it difficult for consumers to avoid potentially dangerous products.

To help protect us all they created this handy pdf of popular products, both good and bad.

The pdf doesn’t cover laundry detergent, but we use all kinds of cleaning products and this may be a good way to start understanding why we use specific brands.
