ABC News Reports Brazilian Blowout has Dangerously High Amounts of Formaldehyde. Government issues "cease" warning to salons.
A couple of days ago, the government revealed a report revealing that the popular Brazilian Blowout product, which advertises itself as being “Formaldehyde Free”, actually contains dangerously high concentration of formaldehyde and OSHA’s COERT has issued an official “Cease” warning to salons on their website.
Salons across the United States and Canada are now wondering what to do with the expensive product purchased from Brazilian Blowout which the government has issues a warning to “cease” using or apply proper hazardous chemical precautions in place which may be impractical for most salons. The Brazilian Blowout company has not publicly agreed to returns or refunds and its probably too early to accurately assess the legal liability salons may face by continuing to use this product on their clients. This incident has left salon professionals in a very bad situation as keratin treatments are often among the highest priced services they offer.
