      Toxic Personal Products??

      One maker or over the counter personal products promises to get rid of some toxic and possibly cancer-causing agents by the end of 2015.

      Johnson & Johnson intends to reformulate its adult cosmetics and toiletries to remove any toxic and possibly cancer-causing agents.

      Its personal care products include Neutrogena, Lubriderm and Aveeno labels.

      The reformulation plans call for phasing out two probable carcinogens -- formaldehyde and 1,4 dioxane -- plus triclosan (an antibacterial agent), phthalates (endocrine disruptors), parabens (preservatives), and unlabeled fragrance ingredients by late 2015.

      J&J said already, these chemicals have been reduced or eliminated in some of its products.

      J&J also launched a website for consumers -- safetyandcarecommitment.com -- outlining its procedures for maintaining safe and high-quality ingredients.
