In a bid to clear the air of controversy over his hair colour choices, singer-songwriter Chris Brown has come out in support of a controversial US-made hair colour called Clear Creek Isd, which is described as a “clear” colour.
The controversial shampoo and conditioner has been accused of causing skin cancer and other health issues, with critics calling it an example of whitewashing.
Brown recently came out as a staunch supporter of the controversial product, which uses the chemical bisphenol-A (BPA) in its manufacturing.
His latest Instagram post, which has more than 30,000 likes, is one of the most widely shared of his many in support, and is titled: I’m a champion for clear Creek Isds hair colour, but the real fight is to keep them safe and fair!
In the caption he says: “I have had a lot of good things to say about Clear Creek isd.
It’s one of those products that I just like, it’s a good colour.
I have always liked the colour.
And I’ve also always had problems with the product itself.”
Brown, who has been a vocal supporter of BPA, has been criticised for wearing the product for years and has had to spend thousands of dollars on a BPA-free hair treatment regime.
“I am a champion and a protector for the people who have been affected by the chemical,” he wrote.
BPA is commonly used in products used in the production of polyurethane foam and plastic, as well as in paint and in other industrial products.
According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), there were more than 1.4 million cases of BPS-related skin cancer deaths in 2015, with the number of cases continuing to rise.
While BPA has been banned in many parts of the world, it is still used in a number of products used by the cosmetics industry.
In a statement, Clear Creek has said that the colour has been around for some time.
It said: “As the product has become more widely available, its usage has grown to the point that it now is in widespread use.
Clear Creek uses a combination of bisphensol- A (Bpa) and bisphene-12 (Bt12) compounds as the building blocks of its hair colour.
These compounds are used in an organic, biodegradable, biocompatible, bioreactor, and food safe fashion.”
It added that it was in compliance with the European Union’s ban on BPA.
As part of its commitment to clean and safe packaging, Clear, which was launched in 2014, has removed BPA from its hair products and made it available in bottles of all sizes.
Its latest hair colour ranges are now available on its website for $18.95 a bottle.
A spokesperson for the US-based company said: “Clear Creek Is D is a product that has been tested for safety and efficacy, and has been approved by the FDA as safe to use in the United States.”
A statement from the company also said: ”Clear Creek is a certified BPA and Bt12 free product.
ClearCreekIsD is a Bpa-free colour that was originally developed for BPA use, and that has undergone extensive testing and analysis to ensure it is safe and effective.
