Supermarkets Remove Banned Hair Dye Containing Banned Chemical

Banned Chemical Found In Hair Dyes

Before I say anything else... have a look at the picture to the right. If you have this boxed Hair Dye, DO NOT USE IT!

Here's why... Both Tesco and Sainsbury's have confirmed that they have moved all Hair Dye products from the Bigen range, including Bigen, Blasol and JR Beauty. They have done this as some products were found to contain a banned chemical. A chemical that's banned for a reason - it can seriously harm unborn babies and a women's fertility.

Here's what a Tesco spokesman had to say: "Customer safety is always our top priority, so we have taken the precautionary measure of issuing a product recall for the Bigen hair dye range."

And Sainsbury's confirmed: "We are taking the Bigen product off the shelves."

The chemical involved is called Sodium Perborate, which is not only toxic if inhaled but can harm both fertility and unborn children.

If you do have any of the Bigen Hair Dye products then take them back to where you bought them and you will be refunded. Tesco and Sainsbury's are fully aware of the recall as should others, so you shouldn't have any trouble.
