Benzene deodorant replacement initiative

Benzene deodorant replacement initiative video

In November 2021, the independent laboratory Valisure found dangerous concentrations of benzene in 24 lots of aerosol deodorants from 8 big brands. While the safe limit of benzene is 2 ppm, Valisure discovered 24 lots of deodorant from 8 brands to contain between 2.24 ppm and 17.7 ppm of benzene, 14 lots from 8 brands to have between 0.20 ppm and 1.89 ppm benzene, and 21 lots to contain detectable traces of benzene. Exposure to benzene from deodorants occurs by inhalation and skin absorption. Over time, the chemical accumulates in the body, which may lead to life-threatening diseases such as leukemia. If you have been using one of the deodorants found to contain benzene, you can now request a safe, non-toxic product by virtue of our Benzene Deodorant Replacement Initiative.

The brands of deodorant with benzene you should avoid buying or using

Benzene was found by Valisure in 30 different brands of deodorant. It is important to know that manufacturing deodorants does not require the use of benzene. More than half of the body spray batches analyzed by the laboratory were found to contain benzene. The brands you have to look out for are:
