"That never stopped these nannies in the past."
While that's often true, this one might have some merit. These ingrediants appear to be suspect enough that some companies such as Unilever have removed them from their product lines.
Further, small don't appear to be "harmful" these phthalates are oil soluable which means that repeated exposure causes them to accumulate in the body (not flushed out by the water in the body.) A search of Google indicates these compounds show up in other products, hence, further exposures and accumulations. So how much is enough?
(I've worked in the chemical industry for close to 30 years and people expose themselves to all kinds of hazards they're unaware of. Too, some chemicals receive a much harsher scrutiny than they deserve. Politics and health cause an extreme pain in the a$$) LOL
