DEA-CONTAINING PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS CANCER LABEL WARNING URGED by the Cancer Prevention Coalition in a citizen petition filed with FDA Oct. 24. According to the public advocacy group, "DEA in cosmetics can react with nitrosating agents to form nitrosamines." Specifically, N-nitrosodiethanolamine (NDELA), which is the nitrosamine found most frequently in cosmetics, "is readily formed in cosmetics by nitrosation of DEA," the group maintains.
