Unilever is reportedly recalling 19 of its dry shampoo products due to potentially elevated levels of a known human carcinogen, benzene.

The dry shampoos being recalled include Dove, Nexxus, Suave, TRESemmé, and TIGI, which makes Rockaholic and Bed Head.

The recall is quite substantial as exposure to benzene can occur by inhalation, orally, and through the skin. Exposure to carcinogens such as benzene can ultimately lead to cancers, including leukemia, blood cancer of the bone marrow, and blood disorders.

While Unilever confirmed that daily exposure to benzene at the levels detected in testing would not cause adverse health consequences, the company said it is recalling the products as a precautionary move.

“Unilever has worked with its propellant suppliers to address this issue,” said the company.

Unilever also noted that, to date, it has not received reports of adverse events relating to this particular recall.

All products made before October 2021 are in question and retailers throughout the United States have been instructed to remove these products from shelves.
