Aluminum in Dry Shampoo - OH MY!!

Anyone who doesn’t live under a rock has avoided aluminum in antiperspirant at some point but did you know that many conventional dry shampoos also contain aluminum? Why is what you put on your head one of life’s most important considerations, you ask? 

New pharmaceutical research for topical application of drugs studies have found that your scalp is a weak spot on your body for protecting against chemical penetration.  The scalp and forehead show the highest absorption rate for drugs and chemicals (approximately four times greater the absorption rate than your forearms). Follicular penetration allows drugs and chemicals to enter the body with great ease. Not to mention the fact that when you spray dry shampoo you are BREATHING IT IN!! 

Based on 16 year old scientific studies, the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel has indicated that Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate is safe in cosmetic formulations, as long as established limitations imposed on heavy metal concentrations are not exceeded. But who is watching out for these limitations and why take the unnecessary risk when no new information is available? Remember when Talcum Powder was considered “safe”?
