Just found some information in my 'turning eco-chic' travels... I was pretty shocked about it & I thought I would share it with you.

Formaldehyde in common household products

Is there any better reason to choose Shaklee products? You can be sure the safety and HEALTH of your family is Shaklee's goal! Shaklee shampoos, conditioners, vitamins, handy wipes, children's vitamins, DO NOT contain formaldehyde, and, as stated with the GetClean household kit, it's about the toxic ingredients NOT contained in Shaklee products:
no napthalene, no kerosene, no formaldehyde, no phenol, no creosol, no lye, no hydrocholoric acid, no sulfuric acid, no petroleum distillates, no benzene, no ammonia, no paradichlorobenzene, no sodium hydroxide, no butyl cellosolve, no phosphoric acid, no chlorine, no phosphates, no nitrates, no borates, no animal testing, biodegradable!

I recently attended a lecture by an ENT Specialist (Medical Doctor), Dr. Benjamin Asher, and he provided the following information regarding products that contain formaldehyde or FRP's which can cause eczematoid-type dermatitis, headache, or symptoms of asthma. He pointed out that aspartame converts to formaldehyde and children are particularly sensitive to this compound. Some products that were listed in an article from Pediatric Annals 36:1, January 2007 were:
