On October 18, New Jersey-based Unilever announced a voluntary recall of multiple dry shampoo brands including Dove, Nexxus and Suave, that are manufactured by the business conglomerate.
The reason is that these products could expose consumers to a carcinogenic substance called benzene.
“Unilever United States today issued a voluntary product recall to the consumer level of select lot codes of dry shampoo aerosol products produced prior to October 2021 from Dove, Nexxus, Suave, TIGI (Rockaholic and Bed Head), and TRESemmé due to potentially elevated levels of benzene,” the company said in a statement.
Unilever confirmed that the problem was discovered as part of an internal investigation which identified the aerosol propellant as the source. Unilever also said that they’re working with their propellant suppliers to address the issue.
