Johnson and Johnson Baby Shampoo, with its trademark ‘No More Tears’ slogan, has been a mainstay of supermarket shelves and children’s baths for decades. Unfortunately, it has been recently discovered that the company that makes this baby shampoo had been lax in its manufacture and allowed some very harmful ingredients to be added to the mix.
The NY Times Expose on Dangerous Chemicals in Baby Shampoo
According to reporting by the New York Times, Johnson and Johnson had been adding dangerous chemicals, such as formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane to their formula for years. After a public outcry, the company only removed the chemicals from the shampoo by the end of 2013.
The Potential Contamination of Other Products
There is also concern that Johnson and Johnson included chemicals to other products, including Neutrogena and Clean and Clear lines. The company is making moves to remove these ingredients, as well. However, these chemicals can cause severe injury or even death. Formaldehyde 1,4-dioxane have been linked to cancer and could cause health issues for children as they grow.
