CHEMICAL LIST:


TRIETHANOLAMINE:  
Mutagenic for mammalian somatic cells.  The substance may be toxic to kidneys, liver, skin.  Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage.  Repeated exposure may cause liver and kidney damage. May also affect the liver, blood, urinary system and cardiovascular system. Can also cause eye and skin irritation. Harmful if swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin. Preliminary findings from the National Toxicology Program suggest an increased incidence of liver tumors in mice, but their relevance to humans is not clear. Large releases to wastewater-treatment facilities can result in poor treatment and toxic shock to biologically active species. (MSDS information)  Warning:  Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothes. Wash thoroughly after handling.

METHYLPARABEN:
  
The EPA states that ALL PARABENS -- methyl, propyl, butyl -- have been proven to have endocrine-disrupting effects. Endocrine disruptors are chemical substances, primarily man-made synthetics, that interfere with the function of the endocrine system. These chemicals mimic, block or disrupt the actions of human (and animal) hormones and, unexpectedly, do more damage at low levels of exposure than at high levels. These chemicals can also work in sinister yet subtle ways by disrupting the body's ability to produce adequate quantities of hormones or by interfering with the body's hormonal pathways. One single chemical can affect many parts of the endocrine system. Often minute amounts of several of these environmental hormone chemicals can combine to create effects thousands of times more potent than a single chemical. Endocrine disruptors are stored in a body's fatty tissues and do not get flushed out with water, thus they accumulate over the years. It is now recognized that the dramatic increases of breast cancer, non-Hodgkins lymphoma and thyroid cancer have been linked to exposure to environmental estrogens. In the past twenty-five years in the US, alone, thyroid cancer has increased more than 45%, with more women being affected than men, and has become the number one cancer in children under age twenty, many of whom suffered from fetal endocrine disruption exposures.


PROPYLPARABEN: 
CANCER
In a 2008 study published by Mutation Research, exposure to propylparaben showed positive mutation results. According to a 2004 study published by the Journal of Applied Toxicology, parabens were detected in malignant breast tumors.
ALLERGIC REACTIONS
According to Cosmetics Industry Review, propylparaben can cause itching, burning, scaling, hives and blistering of skin in sensitive individuals.
REPRODUCTIVE TOXICITY
Propylparaben can mimic estrogen in the body. It can disrupt the hormonal function of the reproductive system in both males and females.

SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE:   The American Journal of Toxicology has found that SLS irritates skin tissue, corrodes hair follicles, and impairs the ability to grow hair. It also enters and maintains residual levels in the heart, liver, lungs and brain, and has been linked to cancer, neurotoxicity, organ toxicity, skin irritation and endocrine disruption.

FD&C BLUE #1:  
Blue 1, Red 40, Yellow 5, and Yellow 6 have long been known to cause allergic reactions in some people. The Center for Science in the Public Interest says that while those reactions are not common, they can be serious and provide reason enough to ban those dyes. Furthermore, numerous studies have demonstrated that dyes cause hyperactivity in children. Tests on lab animals of Blue 1, Blue 2, Green 3, Red 40, Yellow 5, and Yellow 6 showed signs of causing cancer or suffered from serious flaws.

FD&C YELLOW #5:
  
Yellow 5 has caused mutations, an indication of possible carcinogenicity, in six of 11 tests, but the biggest concern regarding dyes is cancer. In 1985, the FDA commissioner said that Red 3, one of the lesser-used dyes, “has clearly been shown to induce cancer” & was “of greatest public health concern.” However, Secretary of Agriculture John R. Block pressed the Department of Health & Human Services not to ban the dye, & he apparently prevailed—notwithstanding the Delaney Amendment that forbids the use of cancer-causing color additives in foods. Each year about 200,000 pounds of Red 3 are poured into such foods as Betty Crocker’s Fruit Roll-Ups & ConAgra’s Kid Cuisine frozen meals. Since 1985 more than five million pounds of the dye have been used.
FDA tests show that the three most-widely used dyes, Red 40, and Yellow 6, are tainted with low levels of cancer-causing compounds, including benzidine & 4-aminobiphenyl in Yellow 5. However, the levels actually could be far higher, because in the 1990s the FDA & Health Canada found a hundred times as much benzidine in a bound form that is released in the colon, but not detected in the routine tests of purity conducted by the FDA.

POTASSIUM HYDROXIDE:
 
 
A highly corrosive chemical that can severely irritate and burn the skin and eyes leading to eye damage.  Higher exposures may cause a build-up of fluid in the lungs (pulmonary edema), a medical emergency.  Exposure to Potassium Hydroxide can cause headache, dizziness, nausea and vomiting.  Potassium Hydroxide may cause a skin allergy.  WARNING:  Skin Contact:  Quickly remove contaminated clothing. Immediately blot or brush off excess chemical and wash gently with large amounts of soap and water for at least 30 minutes. Seek medical attention immediately.
Potassium Hydroxide has not been tested for its ability to cause cancer in animals or its ability to affect reproduction. 

SODIUM HYDROXIDE:   Sodium hydroxide is a very strong chemical that is also known as lye and caustic soda.  Actions on skin:  burns, irritation, necrosis (holes) in the skin or underlying tissues.  (Information Source:  Medline Plus)

CARBOPOL 980 polymers of acrylic acid cross-linked with polyalkenyl ethers or divinyl glycol. In studies, the CIR Expert Panel (Cosmetic Ingredient Review) called attention to the presence of benzene, a carcinogen, as an impurity in the Carbopol polymers and recommended efforts to reduce it to the lowest possible level. (PharmaInfo.net)

ETHANOL  Adverse effects of topically applied ethanol may include skin irritations or allergic contact dermatitis. Ethanol and its metabolite, acetaldehyde, are potentially carcinogenic for humans. Further concerns include the permeation-enhancing capabilities of ethanol, which could lead to an increased absorption of other components of topically applied formulations (e.g. nitrosamines from cosmetics). Safety assessments of ethanol in any form of application must include the carcinogenic and genotoxic properties of ethanol and its metabolite acetaldehyde. (Journal of Occupational Medicine & Toxicology)

OLETH-3 PHOSPHATE A diethanolamine salt, this ingredient is not harmful but while sitting on the stores shelves or in your cabinet at home, but can react with other ingredients in a product to form an extremely potent carcinogen called nitrosodiethanolamine (NDEA). NDEA is readily absorbed through the skin and has been linked with stomach, esophagus, liver and bladder cancers. The National Toxicology Program (NTP) completed a study in 1998 that found an association between the topical application of diethanolamine (DEA) and certain DEA-related ingredients and cancer in laboratory animals.
