1,4-Dioxane 101

The post-pandemic accelerated cleaning pace equals higher chemical exposure with higher health stakes, and the risk of your business going up in flames (literally). It's vital to the health of your guests, employees, and your business to be informed about what chemicals are in your cleaning products. 1,4 Dioxane is possibly the most infamous ingredient that appears in cleaning products. Here's what we know about this ingredient:

 

1,4-Dioxane is an industrial solvent and stabilizer produced as a byproduct during manufacturing, not an intentionally added ingredient. Because 1,4-dioxane is a byproduct, the FDA and EPA do not require manufacturers to list the chemical in their ingredient lists. The compound is classified as a possible human carcinogen linked to organ toxicity, cancer and more. 

 

Short-term exposure to 1,4-dioxane may cause eye, nose, and throat irritation; long-term exposure may cause kidney and liver damage. Laboratory studies show that exposure to 1,4-dioxane over a lifetime causes cancer in animals. The skin exposure of animals to 1,4-dioxane has demonstrated that it can increase cancer-causing properties of other chemicals. 1,4-Dioxane is highly flammable and can become explosive if exposed to light or air.
