The Soft & Beautiful chemical hair relaxer line is manufactured by the US-based Strength of Nature cosmetics company. Although the company's chemical hair straighteners are marketed as safe hair care products containing natural oils such as olive, argan, and coconut oils, these hair relaxers also have a strong mix of chemicals that can cause severe health conditions. The Sister Study's initial results showing an association between chemical hair relaxers' use and higher uterine cancer rates prompted several toxic hair relaxer lawsuits in the United States. The decade-long major clinical study was conducted by the National Institutes of Health and it was published in 2022.

Risk of cancer for women who use Soft & Beautiful chemical hair relaxers

According to a study conducted by the National Institutes of Health, the endocrine-disrupting chemicals from hair relaxers could increase the risk of hormone-sensitive health conditions such as uterine cancer. Soft & Beautiful no-lye hair relaxer products are created to straighten coily and curly hair. The products contain emollients to create a layer of protection during the relaxing process but also contain harmful chemicals such as phthalates to dismantle the hair's protein structure to change its natural texture. Some of the hair relaxer compounds have endocrine-disrupting effects disturbing the functioning of the endocrine system, leading to health conditions in women. The Sister Study's results mainly concern ethnic women who regularly use chemical hair relaxers.

Soft & Beautiful hair relaxer lawsuits

After the NIH study was published, women filed toxic hair relaxer lawsuits against Strength of Nature. Plaintiffs in toxic hair relaxer lawsuits claim that the cosmetics company promotes the Soft & Beautiful hair straightening products toward ethnic women while failing to warn about the dangers of the chemicals in the products. Lawsuits are being filed by women who have used Soft & Beautiful hair relaxers for years and subsequently developed hormone-sensitive diseases such as uterine cancer, or ovarian cancer.
