Class Action Lawsuit Accuses Dry Shampoo of Having “Dangerous” Levels of Benzene

A new class action lawsuit says a dry shampoo sold in the U.S. actually had “dangerous” levels of benzene in it.

A 27-page lawsuit says dry shampoo products by Not Your Mother’s brand, including Beach Babe, Clean Freek, and Plump for Joy, expose consumers to “high levels of acutely toxic” benzene. According to the US Food and Drug Administration, benzene is a cancer-causing chemical and is unsafe in cosmetic products.

The lawsuit says an independent laboratory found some Not Your Mother’s shampoos had benzene levels reaching up to 158 parts per million, but the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health says workers should wear protective equipment if exposed to benzene concentrations of 0.1 parts per million or higher.
