Unilever calls out renowned brands as cause of cancer

Unilever calls out renowned brands of aerosol dry shampoo including Dove as the cause of cancer after discovering that the products contain a chemical called benzene.
Other brands like Nexxus, Suave, Tresemme and Tigi were also mentioned which makes dry shampoos.
The discovery of benzene in products was done by an analytical lab called Valisure which is based in New Haven.
This is not the very first time any brand has been alleged. P&G also tested aerosol products following the findings from Valisure and came up with the result that Pantene and Herbal Essence dry shampoos are contaminated with benzene.
"Given what we've seen, it unfortunately makes sense that other consumer product categories like aerosol dry shampoos could be heavily affected by benzene contamination and we are actively investigating this area", said Valisure Chief Executive Officer David Light.
Dry Shampoos contain propellant like propane and butane which are known as petroleum distillates made by refining crude oil.
Whereas benzene is a contaminant of petroleum products.
As per FDA, it says the products shouldn't contain any poisonous substances.
