The products that do contain 1,4-Dioxane, according to the CTFA, are safe and can be used with confidence. The CTFA maintains that while the chemical may result as the byproduct of the preparation of shampoos and bubble baths, its presence is controlled. The organization also notes that manufacturers reduce the levels of the chemical as much as possible. Also, the CTFA reports that the levels reported by the environmental agencies prove that the cosmetic industry is successfully keeping the levels of the chemical low.
