Ingredients in Shampoo Have Been Linked to Neuropathy

Share

Promises of more volume, shine, and botanical extracts may lure you in as you browse the shampoo aisle, but you may want to turn your attention to the tiny ingredients lists on the bottles to make sure you’re not choosing a product that will have you showering yourself in a neuro-toxic and carcinogenic chemical every day.

 

According to a new report from the Center for Environmental Health, dozens of shampoos, soaps, and other personal care products (the nonprofit group tested) contained cocamide diethanolamine, otherwise known as cocamide DEA. The basis of the chemical—coconut oil—seems innocent enough. But scientists tinker with the ingredient, modifying it into an unnatural, toxic form, merely for the purpose foaming agent.

 

DEA blocks absorption of the nutrient choline, which is essential to brain development and peripheral nerve function. Choline deficiencies can lead to peripheral nerve damage, metabolic syndrome, NAFLD (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease), insulin resistance, and hypertension. All of these disorders can result in peripheral nerve damage and nerve pain, also known as peripheral neuropathy.

Neuropathy, or nerve damage, has been reported to develop due to a variety of factors, primarily as a result of an improper nutrition and diet. Recent studies indicated that several ingredients used in various types of shampoo can and have caused the development of neuropathy, even cancer.
