Brazilian Blowout Drops Its Lawsuit Against Oregon OSHA
Quick recap: After receiving health complaints, OSHA tested solutions from many brands, including Brazilian Blowout, some of which were labeled formaldehyde-free. OSHA determined that they contained dangerous levels of formaldehyde. OSHA said so, publicly. Brazilian Blowout sued them for spreading false and misleading information. And the nature of the tests conducted were called into question.
From Oregon Live:
[OSHA] tested 105 samples of hair smoothers from 54 salons, finding significant formaldehyde levels. More than one-third came from Brazilian Blowout Acai Professional Smoothing Solution bottles labeled “formaldehyde-free,” though formaldehyde content ranged from 6.8 percent to 11.8 percent, averaging more than 8 percent.
