Allergic contact dermatitis to glutaraldehyde in a hair conditioner1

Author and Disclosure Information

Abstract

Occupationally related allergic contact dermatitis to glutaraldehyde has been well documented. The authors report the first case of allergic contact dermatitis to glutaraldehyde in a personal-care item—a hair conditioner. Glutaraldehyde was found to be present in 74 cosmetics, providing potential for sensitization from nonoccupational exposure.
