1,4-Dioxane is not only in Tide Detergent, it is also in other products too. It is a man made flammable colorless liquid with an odor. It is a dangerous fire and explosion hazard when it is exposed to heat and flame.

Dry 1,4-dioxane is stable, but it becomes unstable when temperatures and pressures are elevated.

1,4-dioxane is found in everyday use of household products such as detergents, soap, shampoos, deodorant, body lotions, dishwashing soap, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

Exposure to 1,4-dioxane could lead to severe health effects.
It has been indicated, by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health that 1,4-dioxane can cause symptoms including dizziness, vomiting, unconsciousness, abdominal pain, and eye irritation.

1,4-dioxane can also trigger skin rashes in some children and adults.

It had been once said that 1,4-dioxane is banned throughout the European Union and has been listed since 1988 as a chemical known to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity under the State of California’s Proposition 65.

If exposed to carcinogenic compounds it is believed to have the strongest effect during the growth and development stages of children.
Therefore, the greatest concern about 1,4-dioxane in personal care products is the potential exposure to children.
Since the effects of many carcinogens are cumulative, low-level of exposure to children beginning at a young age may result in considerable cancer risk over time.

Also The NIOSH International Chemical Safety Card on 1,4-dioxane indicated that 1,4-dioxane can be absorbed through the skin, which is of considerable concern, considering it is in many personal care products.

Many children's bath products contain 1,4-dioxane, which may cause cancer and skin allergies.

1,4-dioxane has been founded in Baby products…Baby Wash, Bubble Bath, Baby Tubs, Baby Shampoo and many other personal care products for Babies, Toddlers, Young Adults and Adults.

Should parents be given complete and accurate information about products for kids and themselves, as well? How can consumers better protect themselves?
