America's Beauty Show Challenges Toxic Salons
Date:3/27/2009

ery fine particles which are readily inhaled into the depths of the lungs and can irritate and cause toxic effects. Pump spray products are very much safer as their particles are at least tenfold larger, and large enough to be filtered out through the nose. Polyvinyl pyrrolidine, a common ingredient in hair sprays, is designed to increase smoothness and flexibility of the hair. However, it can cause chronic lung damage and should be banned.

Finally, eyeliners, skin lightening creams, and some brands of mascara used in salons, besides being available for purchase in beauty supply stores, contain mercury as a preservative. However, even small doses of mercury accumulate and can cause neurological damage following long term exposure.
