OCA Campaign Success Story of the Week: OCA's New Study Finds Greatly Reduced Carcinogens in Personal Care Products

OCA Campaign Success Story of the Week:
OCA's New Study Finds Greatly Reduced Carcinogens in Personal Care Products
The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) released a new follow-up study today that assesses hazardous levels of the unlabeled carcinogen contaminant 1,4-dioxane in leading conventional as well as  "natural" and "organic" brands of personal care and household cleaning products. The results indicate significant improvement for 23 products from sixteen major brands that OCA had previously exposed last year as containing potentially dangerous levels of 1,4-dioxane. In other words, thanks to ongoing pressure from the OCA and its allies, some of the best selling personal care products on the market have been reformulated to be safer for human health and the environment.
Of course, our work is never done: the study also found a number of conventional products that had alarmingly high levels of the carcinogen. The study was commissioned by the OCA and was overseen by environmental health consumer advocate David Steinman (author of The Safe Shopper's Bible). The independent third-party laboratory, Bodycote Testing Group, known for rigorous testing and chain-of-custody protocols, performed all testing.
