Dove’s ‘Real’ Beauty Products Are Filled With Cancer-Causing Chemicals, Fake Dyes And Toxic Fragrance.
Dove White Beauty Bar
Here is the original product that initiated this company. It hasn’t changed and the declaration is still the same:
#1 Dermatologist recommended
Classic moisturizing formula
Dove doesn’t dry skin like ordinary soap
With ¼ moisturizing cream and mild cleansers, helps retain skin’s moisture
Makes skin softer, smoother and more radiant than ordinary soap
Suitable for daily use on hands, face, and body
The formula is the same as well, but the ingredients sound less charming:
Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate, Stearic Acid, Sodium Tallowate Or Sodium Palmitate, Lauric Acid, Sodium Isethionate, Water, Sodium Stearate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Cocoate Or Sodium Palm Kernelate, Fragrance, Sodium Chloride, Tetrasodium Edta, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891).

What do these words even mean?!
The Reality Behind the Ingredients
Here are ingredients rampant in Dove products and what they truly can do to your body.
Methylisothiazolinone – Studies have found this chemical to contribute to neurodegenerative disorders and seizures. They are looking to conduct further research on this toxin. (3)
Fragrance/Parfum is a common skin irritant and the leading cause of dermatitis from cosmetic use. Studies suggest that this is rising skin sensitivities. (4)
Tetrasodium Edta is made from formaldehyde, a known carcinogen. Also, it is a penetration enhancer, meaning it dissolves the protective skin barrier, pathing the way for other toxins to sink into your tissue and perhaps even your bloodstream. Although the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel deemed this chemical “safe,” since it is not well-absorbed into the skin, they did suggest caution when mixing this preservative with other hazardous ingredients. (5)
Sodium Tallowate – Vegans, cover your eyes! Sodium Tallowate, featured in the classic Dove Beauty bar, is derived from the fatty tissue of cattle. The FDA declared this additive to be safe, but according to them, GMOs are fine too. (6)
Sodium Laureth Sulfate – About 16,000 studies testing the cumulative effect and long-term exposure of SLS linked it to:
Irritation of the skin and eyes
Neurotoxicity, ecotoxicology, endocrine disruption, and biochemical or cellular changes
Possible mutations and cancer (7)
