Health Canada is reporting that they’ve conducted tests and found Brazilian Blowout solutions to contain up to 12% formaldehyde. (I know I keep hammering this into your heads, but as a point of comparison, anything over .2% formaldehyde is considered unsafe by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Panel.)
I’ve also just been sent documents containing formaldehyde testing from a variety of brazilian treatments, including Keratin Complex, Global Keratin, Marcia Teixeira, Brazilian Gloss, and Simply Smooth. (And yes, they all contain varying levels of formaldehyde, according to these documents.) As soon as I can figure out how to post them (they’re in PDF format), I will.
