Timeline of actions taken against hair straighteners containing formaldehyde
FDA need to take action to protect salon workers and consumers from formaldehyde in hair straighteners
The fight over whether a popular hair-smoothing salon treatment contains hazardous levels of a cancer-causing chemical is heating up.
California ordered a hair products company Monday to pay $600,000 in penalties for selling a popular concoction that releases toxic formaldehyde gas while smoothing out those pesky curls.
GIB, which had advertised its hair-straightening treatments as 'formaldehyde free,' will have to warn hairstylists that two of its products can expose users to formaldehyde gas.
The maker of a popular line of hair-straightening products has agreed to alert consumers that two of its formulations emit formaldehyde gas, a possible carcinogen, California’s attorney general announced Monday.
