Phenoxyethanol

Phenoxyethanol er på EUs liste over farlige stoffer, men benyttes ofte i kosmetiske produkter.

Jeg kikket i dag på forskjellige hudkremer på butikken som var parfymefri fordi jeg var tom for ansiktskrem. Det jeg fant i hyllene var hudkrem fra HTH og Neutral. HTH er ikke godkjent av astma og allergiforbundet NAAF, men det er Neutral.

Da jeg kikket på innholdet fant jeg at begge to kremene innholder Phenoxyethanol. Det som skuffer meg mest er at kremen fra Neutral er godkjent av Norges Astma og Allergiforbund  (NAAF), det er dok ikke hudkremen fra HTH.

Fra Wikipedia:
“In 2005–06, methyldibromoglutaronitrile/ phenoxyethanol was the ninth-most-prevalent allergen in patch tests (5.8%).

The Food and Drug Administration has warned that the chemical is toxic to infants via ingestion, and “can depress the central nervous system and may cause vomiting and diarrhea.” Combined with Chlorphenesin, these two chemicals can cause respiratory depression in infants. Since these chemicals are often present in cosmetics and lotions applied to the hands and are easily ingested, caution should be exercised.

German research in 1999, concluded that it had neurotoxin potential, but in a concentration-dependent manner.

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) data sheets show chromosomal changes and genetic mutation effects in testing as well as testicular atrophy and interference with reproductivity in mice for other glycol ethers, although phenoxyethanol is not mentioned in the abstract.” Wikipedia

Hva med cocktail effekten, og bruk av flere produkter med dette i, det vil jo øke forbruket av Phenoxyethanol. Hvorfor tillater et Astma og Allergiforbund kjente farlige stoffer i produktene?

In English

Phenoxyethanol

Phenoxyethanol is on the EU list of dangerous substances, but is often used in cosmetic products.

I looked today at various skin creams in the store that was fragrance free because I was out of face cream. What I found on the shelves was cream by HTH and Neutral. HTH is not approved by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation NAAF, but Neutral is.

When I looked at the contents, I found that both creams contain phenoxyethanol. What disappoints me most is that the cream from Neutral is approved by the Norwegian Asthma and Allergy Association (NAAF), but the skin cream from HTH is not.

What about the cocktail effect and use of multiple products with this chemical added, that cause increasing consumption of phenoxyethanol. Why does a Asthma and Allergy Association grant use of known dangerous substances in the products?

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
