Johnson & Johnson Says Its Removing Dangerous Chemicals From Baby Products

November 16, 2011: 02:15 AM EST
Johnson & Johnson announced that it will continue work toward removing traces of two unsafe chemicals from its baby products. The announcement reportedly comes after two years of pressure from the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, an international coalition of consumer and environmental groups, to remove two potentially carcinogenic ingredients from Johnson's Baby Shampoo. J&J recently said it had removed the potential carcinogen 1,4-dioxane and quaternium-15, a chemical that releases the preservative formaldehyde from products in several countries, including the U.K., Scandinavia and South Africa. The campaign is pushing J&J to remove the chemicals from products sold in the U.S., China and elsewhere. J&J told The Associated Press that all quarternium-15 will be gone from its baby products within two years, and sooner for baby shampoo.
