Tag benzene deodorants

After Valisure released its revealing report in November 2021, the public became aware of the widespread benzene contamination of antiperspirant and deodorant products. Contamination was detected in more than half of the 108 batches of tested products from 30 separate brands. Several Tag brand deodorants showed elevated signs of benzene. Benzene has no safe level of exposure and has been categorized as a class 1 solvent. The FDA allows tiny quantities of benzene (2 parts per million) in a small range of therapeutic drugs, and the EPA enforces a strict 5 parts per billion standard for drinking water. Still, benzene isn't allowed in self-care products due to its carcinogenic potential.

Benzene Testing Results

Valisure's detailed report found that 3 Tag branded deodorants and antiperspirants contained high levels of benzene, with one batch exceeding FDA safety levels by 7 times.

  • Tag Midnight, Fine Fragrance, Body Spray, Long Lasting Scent - 14.1ppm
  • Tag Sport, Fearless, Fine Fragrance Body Spray, Long Lasting Scent - 2.53ppm
  • Tag Sport, Dominate, Fine Fragrance Body Spray, Long Lasting Scent - 2.30ppm

It should be noted that even though benzene's presence was confirmed, it isn't an ingredient used by manufacturers. Contamination is more than likely a byproduct of propellants used to dispense the product, like hydrofluorocarbon 152a, alcohol, propane, isobutane, and butane.

When Valisure's results became public knowledge, consumers started filing class action lawsuits against the liable companies. As a result, Unilever, P&G, and HRB Brands progressively recalled the products suspected of contamination. However, Tag's owner My Imports USA, did not issue a recall.
