Personal Care Products Contain Harmful Ingredients, French Consumer Group Says

February 22, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Some personal care products, such as creams, shampoos, and toothpastes, manufactured by companies, including L’Oreal and Procter & Gamble, may contain potentially harmful substances, according to France-based consumer protection group UFC-Que Choisir. According to a list of 185 products published by the group, these products included substances that were legal but could cause allergies, irritations, or endocrinal disorders. Data from the study revealed that eight brands of baby wipes, such as L’Oreal’s Bebe Cadum and Mixa, contain phenoxyethanol, which could be toxic for the blood and liver.
