Persil Color - Optical Brightener

Posted by livebetter (My Page) on

I was looking up ingredient lists for some Persil products and noticed this list for the new Persil Sensitive Color version I recently purchased.

I thought the color versions did not contain optical brighteners?? Notice for anyone trying to avoid them that this version does appear to contain them as did some other color versions I checked. That seems odd?

Also, have to say the one ingredient stood out (MELAMINE-FORMALDEHYDE POLYMER METHYLATED) ... this wouldn't be formaldehyde that we've been warned is not safe is it?!
