New clothes are a chemical exposure many would not consider. Dr. Mercola, a well-known and respected health blogger, wrote an interesting article about this topic. Dr. Mercola wrote “Depending on the country new clothes are manufactured in, they may contain multiple chemicals of concern. Among them are azo-aniline dyes, which may cause skin reactions ranging from mild to severe. If you’re sensitive, such dyes may leave your skin red, itchy and dry, especially where the fabric rubs on your skin, such as at your waist, neck, armpits and thighs. Formaldehyde resins are also used in clothing to cut down on wrinkling and mildew. Not only is formaldehyde a known carcinogen, but the resins have been linked to eczema and may cause your skin to become flaky or erupt in a rash. And there is also Nonylphenol ethoxylate (NPE), which is a toxic endocrine-disrupting surfactant used to manufacture clothing.”
