CVS Hypoallergenic Mislabeling Claims
As much as 70% of the U.S. population is allergic to at least one personal care product ingredient. Most of these skin allergies are of unknown cause.
Thus, consumers increasingly seek hypoallergenic products. Those who do not suffer from skin allergies seek hypoallergenic products to avoid developing a skin allergy. Those who do suffer from a skin allergy seek hypoallergenic products to avoid the inflammatory cascade caused by an unidentified skin allergen.
Seeking to capture the growing market, manufacturers label many of their products as “hypoallergenic.” However, some of these products are chock-full of known allergens that cause serious skin damage, skin irritants, eye irritants, carcinogens, mutagens, reproductive toxins and other chemicals extremely hazardous to human health.
