Is Triethanolamine In Dangerous Cosmetic Ingredients?
Hello, I’m Nisa. I bought a cosmetic product and then contained triethanolamine. Is this product that I bought dangerous?
Triethanolamine or TEA is an ingredient used in cosmetic products which is alcohol which functions as a counterweight to the acidity or pH level. TEA itself can cause several reactions such as allergies, skin becomes dry, hair becomes dry or also if used for a long time can be toxic to the body and increase the risk of cancer. By the FDA TEA levels should not be more than 5% and not for prolonged skin contact and continuous use.
For that we need to pay attention to some dangerous ingredients in cosmetics before buying so that the benefits provided are more than the risks that can arise. Choose cosmetics that are safe and use well, also store your cosmetics in the appropriate place and packaging, not exposed to direct sunlight or at the right temperature to avoid changes and health risks. Remove cosmetics immediately after use, and if complaints arise, stop using them immediately and consult a doctor.
