Mr. Bubble's Toxic Bubbles
Some companies just don’t learn. Almost a decade after all the smart people got rid of the chemical toxins in their children’s bubble bath, Mr. Bubble has gone retro.
Mr. Bubble contained 16 ingredients on the label and almost a third are toxic to babies and children:
Sodium laureth sulfate (SLS) is made with cancer-causing ethylene oxide and often contaminated with the carcinogenic breakdown byproduct diethylene oxide, also known as 1,4-dioxane.
PEG-80 and PEG-150 distearate are often tainted with 1,4-dioxane.
Fragrance is the most allergenic ingredient used in personal care products. Fragrances contain about 600 different chemicals that aren’t disclosed.
Red 33 may contain trace levels of 1,3-diphenyltriazene (DPT) and azobenzene (AB), both cancer causing.
