Scientists from The University of Pittsburgh have raised concerns that methylisothiazoline commonly used in shampoos and hand lotions may affect fetuses if the mother uses the product while pregnant. The substance may affect the growth of developing nerve cells in the fetus. The scientists claim that there have been no neurotoxicity studies done to determine the chemicals safe exposure level and more research needs to be done to follow up on this.
