Product Warning! Suave Dragonfruit 2in1 Shampoo Plus Conditioner for Kids

May 17, 2008   //   by David Bates   //   All About Daniel, Life Stories  //  6 Comments

WARNING!
Me and the wife just got the baby to sleep after he had a bath. We had just bought the Suave Dragonfruit 2in1 Shampoo Plus Conditioner for Kids and when we tried it he started crying furiously. I quickly rinsed it off but the damage had already been done. He recieved several burns to his scalp and left eye. I would advise not to buy this product, and if you have return it at once. It is not worth the risk, see for yourself.

We contacted Suave and gave them the lot # etc of the shampoo.

BTW, the marks around his chin are from slob.

We will be switching back to Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Shampoo, it is $6 more a bottle but worth it if the cheaper shampoos will burn my baby.

Thanks for reading

  • Time to roll out the attorneys. They will pay just to avoid the bad publicity. Hope the kid is ok…
    Re:
    Frank,
    Thanks for your concern, the dude is ok. We (the Wife) have called Suave and they requested that we send the product back to
    them for testing. I don’t want to sue but if I could have got a hold of the R&D guy in that instance…. Who knows. I hope that by posting it
    someone will be saved the grief I went through.

    Thanks for the comment

  • THIS HAPPEN TO MY 1 1/2 YEAR OLD BABY GIRL WITH SUAVE SHAMPOO. SeCOND DEGREE BURNS. ON HER FACE. EXCRUCIATING PAINS AND A VIST TO SHRINERS BURN HOSPITAL. CALLED SUAVE TO SEE IF WE COULD DO ANYTHING TO COUNTERACT THE CHEMICAL NOT A CALL BACK TILL 4 DAYS LATER AFTER A SECOND CALL. THEY TOLD US THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME THEY HAD HEARD OF SOMEONE GETTING A CHEMICAL BURN FROM THEIR PRODUCT. ANYWAYS SHE IS THREE NOW AND IS FINE STILL HAS A red mark on her face though.

  • My 7-year-old is covered in hives. The only thing new we’ve done is use Suave Dragonfruit during a visit to Grandma’s.

  • If the hives look like burns or rashes that then turn to hives discontinue use and contact the number on the bottle.
    As soon as we quit using the product our son went back to normal

  • We have used this product for years and no problems here, it does a good job and this shampoo stacks up against higher priced salon stuff. There has never been any burns and the smell is great! I would suggest that a weak shampoo would give you a poor cleaning and that is why shampoo is used, to clear the hair.. If you have trouble with this product it is with the child being allergic to the formula and therefore other shampoo would cause burning of the scalp area.

  • Jashuh,

    My child is now 3 and was never allergic to any other formula of kid shampoo. I think this was a bad batch as we have tried it since with no problems.

    Thanks for the comment.
