At TRESemmé, we always make sure to only select and use professional-quality ingredients in our products. Each and every ingredient is rigorously screened by our team of scientific experts before it goes into our shampoos and conditioners. This commitment to safety never ends, and we are continually improving our products and checking the latest science to make sure they meet the highest standards in quality and safety.

We do not use formaldehyde in our products. We do use formaldehyde donors such as DMDM hydantoin in some of our shampoos and conditioners.  Formaldehyde donors release low levels of formaldehyde throughout the shelf-life of a product, which protect the product from spoiling.  Formaldehyde is a natural substance which is present in food and produced within our bodies, and the low levels present in our products are well within safe and regulated levels. This has been confirmed by regulators and scientists around the world.

DMDM hydantoin is used in some of our products and it’s a widely used ingredient in the beauty industry. DMDM hydantoin is a formaldehyde donor and it is an important ingredient because it helps to prevent the growth of bacteria and moulds. Health authorities and regulators around the world agree that DMDM hydantoin is safe at the levels found in our products, this includes the US Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel and Europe’s Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety. 

If you would like to find out if your TRESemmé product contains DMDM hydantoin, please check the ingredients list on the product label.

We understand that hair loss can be an incredibly distressing experience.  It can occur for several reasons including hormonal changes, stress, genetic makeup, pregnancy, serious illness, medication, diet, and certain hair styling techniques.

There is no evidence to suggest that DMDM hydantoin - an ingredient widely used in the beauty industry - causes hair loss. Our team of scientific experts rigorously screens each and every ingredient before it goes into our formulations. If we have any concerns or doubts about an ingredient, then we won’t use it in our products. As with any topical product, some people may experience sensitivities to the ingredients used, natural or otherwise. If you are experiencing an adverse reaction, please stop using the product and consult your doctor.
