|Seeing irritated skin? Check your skin care & cosmetic ingredient labels!|
this ingredient, many manufacturers stopped using it directly and therefore don’t have to list it on their labels. Instead they mask (read as HIDE) this preservative under formaldehyde releasers like DMDM Hydantoin and Imidazolindinyl Urea. These ingredients act just like formaldehyde in congealing and preserving products, as well as the damage they can do to our bodies.
Formaldehyde can irritate the respiratory system, cause skin reactions and trigger heart palpitations. Exposure to formaldehyde may cause joint pain, allergies, depression, headaches, chest pains, ear infections, chronic fatigue, dizziness and loss of sleep. So, just because your product does not list formaldehyde directly, doesn't mean it's not in there. Be vigilant and avoid DMDM Hydantoin and Imidazolindinyl Urea too!
