We have not tested our wipes of the presence of Benzene for the following reasons:
1. Benzene can form at the parts per billion (ppb) level in some beverages that contain both benzoate salts and ascorbic acid (vitamin C) or erythorbic acid (a closely related substance (isomer) also known as d-ascorbic acid).
2. Elevated temperatures and light can stimulate benzene formation in the presence of benzoate salts and vitamin C, while sugar and EDTA salts inhibit benzene formation. (FDA, 2007)
3. We are informed that this benzene formation occurs generally in the beverage industry, therefore it is not tested for in cosmetics industry.
