The Ingredient Dunkin' Donuts Just Removed is Found in Popular Hair Growth Vitamins & Supplements
Dunkin’ Donuts just announced that its powdered sugar will no longer contain titanium dioxide — a whitening agent that you can also find in sunscreen, toothpaste and even paint. The scary part? It is also one of the ingredients found in many popular hair vitamins and supplements.
"Titanium dioxide is used for thickening, whitening and lubricating products typically. It is also pretty cheap to use," explains Carla Rivas, co-founder of the all natural hair growth vitamin Hair La Vie. (Hair La Vie is made without titanium dioxide and does not contain synthetic additives, fillers or binders.)
"The long term effects have never been fully tested. One shorter test was completed by the Canadian Center for Occupational Health and Safety that concluded that titanium dioxide may be a human carcinogen. It's been linked to cancer, allergies, autoimmunity and organ system toxicity. We didn't want any cheap fillers in Hair La Vie and decided to avoid any ingredients that aren't completely natural and safe for our consumers. If it doesn't add nutritional value to our vitamin, we don't really see the point of putting it in the product."
How to avoid this when shopping in the future?
"When looking for a good vitamin, always check out the "other ingredients" section and avoid products with things like phthalates, magnesium stearate or silicon dioxide," notes Rivas.
Hair La Vie was designed specifically to change the face of the hair supplement industry, which right now includes a lot of unhealthy, unnecessary fillers, binders and artificial ingredients. They want more brands to follow suit and start making more safe, all-natural products. Hair La Vie is made with only the highest quality of clinically proven, all-natural ingredients. No synthetic additives, fillers or binders have been added to their products. There are no artificial flavors, colors, dyes, or secret ingredients in Hair La Vie either.
My thoughts: I was sent a bottle of Hair La Vie supplements to review. I have been taking them for nearly a month now. I take two capsules each day with meals. I have noticed that my hair is growing much faster than it ever has before. I have really noticed because I usually am able to wait 8 weeks before I need to refresh my highlights, but now after only four weeks they have grown out about 3 inches! I have also noticed that I am getting way less grey hairs popping through. I do not understand this at all, but I welcome it! My hair feels unusually stronger and thicker. I am amazed!
My hair is much longer and looks very healthy, bouncy and vibrant. I am really loving Hair La Vie supplements!
