Banning formaldehyde in children’s soap and shampoo

Children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of formaldehyde, including asthma, chronic bronchitis and other respiratory problems. Formaldehyde is often added to shampoo, soap, body wash, and body lotions, and isn’t labeled as an ingredient, making it difficult for parents to know if the products they’re buying are as safe as possible. Governor Dayton signed into law a bill that bans manufacturers from adding this chemical to personal care products intended for children under the age of 8.
