Godrej Consumer Products: toxic hair relaxers

It was in 1920 when Godrej Group, one of India's leading companies, ventured into the personal care business, becoming a hair care leader in Africa, Asia, and America. In 2016, Godrej Consumer Products acquired Strength of Nature LLC to enhance its leadership in hair care for women of African descent through geographical expansion and brand building. The collaboration between the companies resulted in the Profectiv MegaGrowth brand with a wide array of hair care products, including non-lye chemical hair relaxers. Recent lawsuits against Godrej Consumer Products cite a decade-long clinical study data of increased estrogen perturbation-caused ailments rates among women who used at-home or professional chemical hair relaxer products.
