Shampoo maker settles suit over coal-tar content in Denorex

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) September 8, 2001 - The maker of Denorex dandruff shampoo has settled a civil suit that claimed the product had too much coal tar, a potential cancer causing substance.

Whitehall-Robins agreed to a payment of $422,500 and to lower the coal-tar content of the shampoo by 72 per cent.

"We are going to formulate a new product," Whitehall-Robins spokesperson Fran Sullivan said. "It will be out nationwide by mid-December." The company is a subsidiary of American Home Products.

The suit was brought by Occupational Knowledge International, a non-profit organization that has similar suits pending against 20 other manufactures of coal-tar shampoos. The suits are based on a successful California ballot proposition.

"Proposition 65, which was passed by voter initiative in the late 1980's, meant that anyone exposing others to a carcinogen must notify them," said Perry Gottesfeld, executive director of San Francisco-based Occupational Knowledge International.

The other suits include manufacturers such as Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Neutrogena, which makes T/gel, and Reedco, which manufactures Tegrin. Those cases are scheduled for trial in January.

Do a Parasite Cleanse Annually

It's estimated that 90% of the population may have some form of harmful organism lurking in their body and they don't know it! These intruders live and feed off the host, depriving us of vitamins, nutrients, and amino acids, altering our natural pH levels, decreasing our energy, and creating an acidic environment in the body. Paratrex® aids the body in creating an inhospitable environment for these invading organisms.

Once a person is infested, it's not too difficult to eliminate the adult organisms. The more difficult part lies in dealing with the complete life cycle of these intruders. Paratrex® is one of the most powerful aids in helping the body establish an internal environment that is unfavorable and even hostile to unwanted invaders.
