Use this list while you shop to avoid the worst offenders:
1. parabens – they are used as preservatives
2. formaldehyde – following ingredients break down into formaldehyde: 2 bromo-2nitropropane-1, 3diol, diazolidinyl urea, DMDM hydantoin
3.phthalates – not listed on label, found in fragrance
4.diethanolamine (DEA) and triethanolamine (TEA)
5.diazolidinyl urea and imidazolidinyl urea

Remember just because a product claims to be all natural doesn’t mean it is. You have to read the label!
