What about these products, do you use these products too?

By now you are probably asking yourself, “What’s he on about this time?” And so you should.

Have you any idea what’s in these products that they don’t tell you about?

“But all the ingredients are on the labels,” says you.

No they aren’t!

That’s the point. There is one chemical that is not listed because the manufacturers DON’T put it in.


1 4-dioxane

You see, this little beauty is a by-product that ‘just happens’ during the ethoxylation of other harsh chemicals to make them less harsh.

Because 1 4-dioxane  is a by-product the FDA don’t require it to be listed as an ingredient.

“So, why all the concern?” you ask.

Read this:

What is 1, 4 Dioxane and why should you avoid it.

Then this:

1, 4 Dioxane

And then this:

Now, you tell me why you should know this dangerous chemical is in the products around your home.

Rather shocking and disturbing, don’t you think?
