Ethylhexylglycerin, Laziness and Fake News

Posted by Evangeline Stacy on

One of our future blogs is about the dangers of parabens.


Our most recent blog features our Everything Botanical Soap. I love researching to get the facts,

I wanted to find more information about Ethylhexylglycerin, this natural plant-derived preservative we use.


Instead, I found shocking misinformation.



The first three pages of search were dominated by bloggers who seemed to all grab onto misinformation started by a blogger who sounded like she knew, without providing any reports or studies for proof. Blindly, they all copied without checking facts. Even in this time when we hear so much about "fake news", it's hard to believe how much laziness leads to some misinformation.

Repeated in numerous blogs by so many lazy bloggers who failed to research, they wrote that Ethylhexylglycerin is found in breast cancer cells and known to disrupt the endocrine system, just like it’s been proven of some parabens.


It isn’t true. Searching deep into Google results, there is absolutely no study to back up these bloggers' claims. As soon as we discovered this kind of fake news is out there, we want to make sure you can be aware what’s true, if you didn’t already know.

Ethylhexylglycerin is safe, except for a few very rare cases of people whom it is said to have caused dermatits, a minor possibility compared to the blog rumors


If you’re nerdy enough to be interested in reading proof of how safe this natural alternative is, here is a link showing various studies in a report prepared for the Environmental Defense Fund. http://business.edf.org/files/2017/05/70445-33-9_Ethylhexylglycerin_GS-593_v_1-2_Certified_Jan_2016_EDF.pdf


Ethylhexylglycerin, a safer preservative choice,, is used in Roots Essential's Everytthing Botanical Soap, body lotions and hair care products.
