formaldehyde content comparison

With other brands that don't certify their product batches, fluctuations of formaldehyde occur. As seen in the chart below, some fluctuate by as much as 4.0% of formaldehyde content. The range of this fluctuation alone is over 3 TIMES the TOTAL level recommended by the CIR and Health Canada. Based on the testing by Oregon's OSHA Analytical Laboratory, salon owners should be concerned about whether the product they're using is at the low or high range of formaldehyde percentage. But even at the lower range, the formaldehyde levels are much higher than the CIR and Health Canada recommends.

A LETTER FROM DOREEN GUARNERI

about FORMALDEHYDE

Fellow Stylist,

My name is Doreen Guarneri. I am a professional stylist and the mother of four children- two of them teenage girls. I regularly treat their hair with Simply Smooth Keratin Treatments. I work with keratin treatments, all different kinds, every day in our test salon. I too, am concerned with the safety of the product you and I use. I am a manufacturer that you can find in the lab, our test salon behind a chair, or on stage. Decisions are made using our conscience and our heart over purely financial factors. We are a company of stylists sharing information. With this in mind, I believe, we at american culture brands have created the safest most efficient products on the market. Here's why... The Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) and Health Canada, are government agencies that do not test hair care product prior to market release. They rely on manufacturers to comply voluntarily with industry standards. (THE HONOR SYSTEM) When it comes to the topic of "FORMALDEHYDE", The CIR, and Health Canada suggest a maximum level of % 0.20 and .075 ppm present in beauty product. In the past two years I have seen the keratin treatments go from 12 weeks of smoother calmer, frizz free hair that gradually wears away, to eliminating curl, lasting 26 weeks, and re-growth! Manufacturers blinded by the drive for sales put the dollar before safety. By hiking up the formaldehyde levels, the salon environment became compromised. At american culture brands we batch test every Simply Smooth Keratin Treatment and we publish and guarantee that every batch is compliant with the CIR and Health Canada.

Formaldehyde is a colorless, strong-smelling gas. Commonly known as a preservative in products such as chemicals, particle board, household products, glues, permanent press fabrics, paper product coatings, fiberboard, and plywood, chemical resins,rubber products latex paints, plastics, cosmetics, vehicle exhaust and tobacco smoke. It is also widely used as an industrial fungicide, germicide, and disinfectant.

Vanillin (from vanilla) is commonly used in our Keratin Treatments. It is an FDA approved, food grade preservative that is frequently used in the baking industry and chocolate production.

Formaldehyde

Permissable exposure limits

is the liquid form of Formaldehyde

The most common form of formaldehyde, when in a liquid form, is called "formalin". Formalin more precisely describes aqueous solutions, or formaldehyde in liquid form.

Formalin

The Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) and Health Canada have set recommendations for what they feel the levels of formaldehyde should be limited to. The CIR and Health Canada recommend the limits not to exceed 0.20% of formaldehyde and or formaldehyde releasers/donors. These two government agencies monitor the ingredients in the liquid form and the possible release when heated.

Aldehydes

Some aldehydes are Formaldehyde donors- also known as releasers. Not all aldehydes are formaldehyde donors/ releasers.
