Frequently Asked Questions About House Cleaning Products
It has been several years since the 2014 lawsuit, yet this showed me the company is willing to disguise its ingredients so I choose not to purchase their products.
Seventh Generation has agreed to pay $4.5 million to settle allegations it deceptively marketed and labeled many of its cleaning and personal care products as “natural,” “non-toxic” and “hypoallergenic” even though they contain non-natural ingredients, according to court documents filed July 1 in New York federal court.
I bought Biokleen from Amazon since it had all the right words on the front label. Then I noticed it included this chemical.
That is when the research led me to this article:
Phenoxyethanol breaks down to phenol and acetaldehyde, and acetaldehyde converts to acetate. Phenol can disable the immune system's primary response mechanism. Acetaldehyde occurs during the breakdown of ethanol and is a suspected carcinogen. Inhalation studies have shown irritation of the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) data sheets, for example, show chromosomal changes and genetic mutation effects in testing, as well as testicular atrophy and interference with reproductivity in mice. Phenoxyethanol, in turn, has the potential to disrupt the human reproductive system.
Likewise, the European Union classifies it as an irritant, and a study by Europa EU demonstrates that phenoxyethanol can cause harmful reactions at low doses, as well as allergies. When you look at the facts of the matter, there are over 3,000 known allergens that have been studied. Of those, phenoxyethanol ranks in the top 10 most harmful.
