Baby shampoos, lotions may contain carcinogens, group says

The Washington Post (3/13, Layton) reports, “More than half the baby shampoo, lotions and other infant care products analyzed by” Campaign for Safe Cosmetics “were found to contain trace amounts of two chemicals that are believed to cause cancer, the organization said Thursday.” However, “the chemicals, both characterized as probable carcinogens by the Environmental Protection Agency, are not added intentionally to the products and do not appear on ingredient labels” but “appear to be byproducts of the manufacturing process.”
