Health and Beauty Aids

Health and beauty care products such as shampoos, nail products, deodorants, toothpaste, mouthwash, and hair spray account for many calls to the NJ Poison Control Center. These products are often stored on bathroom counters, dressing tables, etc. making them easily accessible to children and pets. Like all products, these may be harmful if ingested or splashed into the eye.

  • Follow directions on the label when using these products.
  • Read all warning labels.
  • Keep all products in their original bottles or containers.
  • Properly dispose of all unused products.
