Brazilian Blowout maintains product safety

Executive Summary

Following independent testing conducted Oct. 9 by "one of California's leading environmental safety companies," Brazilian Blowout says formaldehyde exposure levels at an unnamed salon performing Brazilian Blowout straightening treatments were found to be six times lower than the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration's "most stringent and conservative standard for air quality safety." Health Canada had issued an advisory Oct. 7 urging stylists to stop using Brazilian Blowout products based on consumer complaints and testing that identified formaldehyde concentrations at higher-than-accepted levels (1"The Rose Sheet" Oct. 11, 2010, In Brief). In an Oct. 11 release, Brazilian Blowout distributor Cavideu USA suggests discrepancy between test results highlights need for updated testing standards. "Industry experts have for years expressed concerns that standardized government testing methods for formaldehyde in water-based cosmetic products are inaccurate and do not measure the actual formaldehyde levels.
