Johnson and Johnson's Reformulated Formula

Johnson & Johnson
January 30, 2014 Reviewed by Marta 0 Comments

Johnson & Johnson is reformulating its baby products to phase out a toxic formaldehyde-releasing chemical. As we wrote a while back, Johnson & Johnson has been strenuously lobbied for years to eliminate toxins and it has finally responded.

Sold with an "improved formula" label, Johnson & Johnson's No More Tears baby shampoo no longer contains quaternium-15, which releases small amounts of formaldehyde. The federal government declared formaldehyde to be a known human carcinogen in 2011.

The company also says it has reduced levels of a suspected carcinogen, 1,4-dioxane, to traces in both its baby and adult products. By 2015, it has pledged to remove more chemicals from both its baby and adult product lines. It’s a great start and we hope that Johnson & Johnson will extend its clean up to chemical fragrances and parabens.
