This is not the first such case in the market of dry shampoos.
London-based multinational corporation Unilever has announced a recall of leading dry shampoo brands. In the course of research, it was found that the products are contaminated with the poisonous substance benzene, which can cause cancer.
Unilever is reportedly withdrawing products under the Dove, Tresemmé, Nexxus, Suave and Tigi brands. We are talking only about aerosol dry shampoos.
The company confirmed the information that the problem is related to the propellants that are used to spray cosmetics. The amount of benzene found in the products is not reported. Company officials say they are recalling products for safety reasons.
This is not the first such case in the market for the production of dry shampoos. Earlier at the end of last year, P&G was forced to abandon the sale of Pantene and Herbal Essences, citing possible benzene contamination as the reason for the decision to recall products.
The FDA has repeatedly stated that clinical trials show the possibility of cancer due to exposure to benzene.
News agencies remind that in 2021-2022 Neutrogena aerosol products from Johnson & Johnson, Banana Boat from Edgewell Personal Care Co. also disappeared from stores. and Coppertone by Beiersdorf AG, and Secret and Old Spice aerosol antiperspirants by Procter & Gamble Co. and Suave from Unilever. The reason was also the discovery of benzene in the above products.
