Toxic Ingredients

Do Your Homework

It’s interesting how some companies disguise ingredients, or don’t list them at all.

Recently I noticed a company advertising organic propanediol to replace propylene glycol. This is a propylene glycol derivative, derived from the element CARBON and according to The National Cancer Institute as well as other studies, this chemical may cause broad systemic toxicity as well as possibly being mutagenic. So I am unsure why I would want to be exposed to this chemical at all.

What does organic mean? An organic chemical is merely a chemical derived from the element Carbon.In the periodic table there are 118 known elements so far. The chemistry of CARBON is called organic chemistry. The chemistry of other elements is called inorganic chemistry. So when someone says something is ORGANIC, are they referring to a carbon derived chemical or a chemical or substance not exposed to pesticides?

My daughter came home from a party with a lip gloss that she had won. It was a purple liquid in a glass tube, made from another country. The ingredient listing said “castor oil”. It was the only ingredient listed. The lip gloss had a fragrance and was purple!

I have never seen purple castor oil that smelled like bubble gum.
