Full List of Illegal Cancer-Causing Shampoos! Is Your Shampoo on the List?

You might not be aware of the fact that your shampoo can cause much more that just a stinging sensation in your eyes. Apparently, this hair product can be deadly.

Namely, a study on soaps and shampoos conducted by the Center for Environmental Health, based in Oakland, California, discovered that 98 of the included products contained a potential carcinogen called cocamide diethanolamine (cocamide DEA).

Some of the items high in this ingredient are shampoos produced by Palmolive, Colomer, Colgate, Paul Mitchell and many others.

Furthermore, in violation of California law, numerous of the tested products which were found to contain cocamide DEA were in fact intended for children or had a fake organic label.

The execute director of CEH, Michael Green, stated that “Most people believe that products sold in major stores are tested for safety, but consumers need to know that they could be doused with a cancer-causing chemical every time they shower or shampoo.

We expect companies to take swift action to end this unnecessary risk to our children’s and families’ health.”

Despite the numerous personal care products and brand name shampoos, the testing conducted by the CEH also discovered cocamide DEA in store-brand products sold at Kohl’s, Pharmaca,

Walmart, and Trader Joe’s. CEH also tested the falsely labeled organic products from Organic by Africa’s Best for significant amounts of cocamide DEA. Moreover, the same carcinogenic ingredient was also found in a children’s shampoo/conditioner from Babies R Us, and a children’s bubble bath from Kmart.

To avoid this kind of issues and reduce the potential risk due to harmful ingredients in the products you buy, it is best that you do your own homemade natural shampoo.

This is how to prepare it:

Homemade Natural Shampoo

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup of Castile soap
  • Two teaspoons of almond or olive oil
  • 10- 15 drops of some essential oil
  • 1/2 cup of coconut milk

Method of preparation:

Its preparation is extremely easy. All you need to do is to mix all the ingredients in a bottle, and your natural, toxin- free shampoo is ready!

Use:

Remember to shake the bottle before you use the shampoo. Use it regularly and your hair will be incredibly healthy, shiny and gorgeous!
