Brazilian Blowout Facing FDA and Congress . . . Again

Brazilian Blowout Products Still Contain Carcinogens

The salon brand Brazilian Blowout is back in the hot seat again. Three congressional representatives sent a letter of censure to the Food and Drug Administration on their lack of reprimand for formaldehyde complaints in the brand's hair-straightening treatments. You might recall that Brazilian Blowout came under scrutiny in 2010 for having formaldehyde levels far over the health standards. For hairstylists and consumers, the toxic chemical could cause adverse effects including cancer.

In February of this year, the brand agreed to place hazard warnings on the products where safety was suspect due to a California lawsuit. But the formulation has not changed. Now Congress is hankering for a more severe investigation of formaldehyde in the beauty industry. The first name on the list is . . . Brazilian Blowout. The products in question are already banned in Canada, Ireland, and Australia. And it seems the FDA might be forced to give more than a meager warning letter and slight slap on the wrist this time around.
