Polysorbate 80 is regarded as a safe chemical in skincare and is used as an emulsifier to combine oil and water. Because a lot of our bath bombs contain high pigmentation, we use Polysorbate 80 in our bath bombs to prevent any staining. Historically there are concerns about the presence of ethylene oxide and the ethoxylation process by which this ingredient is made. This concern stems from the production of 1,4-dioxane during the ethoxylation process. 1,4-dioxane has been linked to some forms of cancer. This is concerning however, manufacturing processes have been put in place to ensure that 1,4-dioxane is not present in the final product and polysorbate 80 is measured for impurities in the manufacturing process. It is also important to note that many of the studies that informed the link made between cancer and 1,4-dioxane specifically tested 1,4-dioxane not polysorbate 80.
