Johnson & Johnson To Phase Out Certain Chemicals From Products

Johnson and Johnson has announced that it plans to remove all potential carcinogens and dangerous chemicals from its line of toiletries and cosmetics for adults by 2015. Among the chemicals that will be removed from the products, which include adult skin care brands such as Aveeno and Neutrogena, over the next 3-4 years are 1,4 dioxane, formaldehyde, triclosan, phthalates, parabens, and fragrance ingredients. However, products will be allowed to contain chemicals that release formaldehyde in the event that there is no safe alternative. J and J's decision to remove the chemicals from its products comes after the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics began pressuring the company to do so in order to protect consumers and its own employees.
