Headache Causing Household Chemicals to Avoid

Can household chemicals cause headaches? The answer to that is actually yes. There is actually a surprising number of household chemical items that can cause not just migraines, but other health problems such as cancer. Here is a list of chemical items to avoid and the products in which they can be found in: 


  • Ethanol 

Typically found in hand sanitizers and some perfumes, ethanol in addition to being highly flammable is also known to cause headaches and coughing fits, particularly when it is being used while cleaning. For more healthy alternatives, Wellth would like to offer its various products for your use like H2One hand sanitizer. 


  • Formaldehyde 

Usually found in paint and dishwasher detergent, this chemical has been known to cause both nasal allergies and throat damage. 


  • Acetone 

A known VOC (volatile organic compound), this chemical can be found in nail polish remover and varnish. When used, acetone has been known to cause burning sensations in the user’s eyes, nose, and throat. It is also known to cause nausea and dizziness. Wellth offers healthier alternatives for your use to minimize the risk of illness or infection.
