What in the edges is going on here?!  I about had a fit when I heard that Eco Styler Gel could contain an ingredient that causes cancer!  So I’ve set out to find out the truth and thank God I did!

I don’t know about you but the labels on most products are so confusing to me and I have no idea what the stuff listed really is beside the obvious water, alcohol etc.  But thanks to the natural curly community online I was able to find out exactly what is in one of our favorite gels.

According to natural beauty blogger, AlopeciaFreeWithJass, Eco Styler Gel does contain an agent that is known to cause cancer.  In a YouTube video she breaks down the ingredients in the popular gel and came across one troubling one, Tetrasodum EDTA.  After reading this I immediately went to my bathroom to see if my jar had Tetrasodum listed.

Tetrasodum is known for causing allergic reactions and is also linked to causing cancer.  This ingredient is also said to contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.  Additionally, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Cosmetics Ingredient Review (CIR), triethanolamine is best suited for products that should be washed off after application.”
