Due To Cancer Risk Effect, Few Products Of Dry Shampoo Recalls In The US - ebuddynews

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported that the US subsidiary of consumer goods giant Unilever announced a voluntary recalls of several types of dry shampoo due to potentially elevated the benzene levels.

This substance, a colorless chemical liquid, is classified as a human carcinogen, which promotes the appearance of cancer. There are several ways that benzene can be absorbed into the human body, such as by inhalation, orally, or through the skin.

Its infiltration into the body can lead to serious diseases, such as leukemia, a type of blood cancer, bone marrow cancer, or multiple myeloma, affecting the tissue inside the bones.

The FDA explains that benzene is a widely present substance in the environment that humans are exposed to daily through multiple sources.

According to the tests, the benzene level detected in the recalls of the dry shampoo products of Dove, Nexxus, Suave, Bed Head, and TRESemmé would not cause adverse health consequences.
