The manufacturer of Brazilian Blowout has made millions of dollars while unfairly exposing stylists to harmful chemicals - putting them in harms way for profit’s sake.
Is a hair straightening service worth exposure to a human carcinogen (formaldehyde)? If you had known, would you have allowed them to put you in harms way?
Although the company that sells Brazilian Blowout continues to deny the use of formaldehyde in their products, recent studies indicate that this is untrue.
According to a study sponsored by the Oregon OSHA, the formaldehyde content in several samples of Brazilian Blowout Solution ranged from 6.4 to 10.8 percent (40 times the acceptable limit), while the formaldehyde content in several samples of Brazilian Blowout Acai ranged from 6.8 to 11.8 percent (44 times the acceptable limit).
Furthermore, under the Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) standards, formaldehyde in excess of .1 percent must be listed as an ingredient. Brazilian Blowout has never listed formaldehyde as an ingredient. It appears that Brazilian Blowout has misrepresented their product.
Formaldehyde exposure has been associated with asthma, pulmonary edema, pneumonitis, cancer of the nose or throat and other severe respiratory symptoms. If you work in the hair care industry and have been exposed to Brazilian Blowout, or a similar product, contact us to discuss your legal options.
