Tresemmé Keratin Smooth Color Shampoo Reportedly Causing Hair Problems
TRESemmé is known worldwide as a great hair care product, but it has its own share of woes.
Its manufacturer, Unilever/Conopco, Inc., is allegedly involved in a lawsuit because of its TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Color shampoo product.
Among its ingredients is DMDM hydantoin, which allegations point to as the primary reason for hair loss and scalp irritation.
But TRESemmé has been around for some time, and some people have had no issues using TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Color shampoo. But there are still some who have had problems using the product.
What is DMDM Hydantoin?
It was used as a preservative in hair care products for years and is the usual cause for lawsuits filed against hair care manufacturers.
There are also claims that DMDM hydantoin is a formaldehyde donor that leaches formaldehyde when it touches water, and we know formaldehyde as a human carcinogen that causes cancer and deadly reactions when taken in by the skin.
Unilever had a lawsuit filed because of DMDM Hydantoin in relation to Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion products.
Products were recalled in 2012 because of complaints, and a settlement in 2016 amounted to $10.25 million.
What Else To Know About the Case
As complaints reiterate that DMDM hydantoin is a dangerous product to be included in a hair care product, even in moderation, an appropriate warning would have been sufficient from the manufacturers, but it is never seen either on the packaging or in their marketing efforts.
Further allegations also attest that despite the many lawsuits filed against Unilever, and the numerous horror stories from consumers that were also included in the case, the defendants should have known and done their job on properly informing consumers what they need to know about their hair care products that make use of DMDM hydantoin.
Founded on the 2nd of September 1929 when Dutch margarine producer Margarine Unie and British soapmaker Lever Brothers completed a merger.
Its headquarters are located in London, England, and its products range from skincare, personal care, cleaning agents, food and drink, and a lot more.
