The Material Safety Rating Is Missing

Doccia me satin shower cap

A nice looking shower cap. The strong smell described in the review is worrisome. Anyone have the packaging on this to see what it contains? Wonder if it has volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Would appreciate the material safety rating updated on this item.

From js250's review:

The odor of fresh, new plastic was seriously prevalent when I removed the cap from its box. After about 15 minutes of airing out, it pretty much went completely away. There was no odor whatsoever after about half an hour of airing out.

You know how a plastic shower curtain smells like a plastic factory just threw up in your bathroom when you first take it out of the package and then the smell fades away rather quickly and you never think about it until you have to buy another one? Well, I think that's pretty much the same thing going on here.

Safety ratings are issued for things that go inside of your body, not on your body. I don't think anyone would be exposed to something dangerous just by using a shower cap.

The material is plastic, so find a toy made of plastic or plastic-like materials and it'll show you the safety rating of plastic. It's extremely safe, just so you know

You might want to research that statement a little further.

What, that shower caps aren't dangerous? Or that Eden issues safety ratings for things that go in your body, not on your body?

Eh, some of us have sensitive noses and shower curtains continue to reek for their entire existences. This is why some hardware stores carry cloth shower curtains (which you have to launder pretty frequently, but it still beats your bathroom smelling like shower curtain), or glass-doored showers.

Good point my dear! I'm pretty sensitive to smells, but I know that plastic off-gasses while in the package and then gets easier to deal with as time goes by, for me. But, I guess I just don't see how it could be "dangerous" to an adult.

Studies have shown that vinyl shower curtains off-gas over 100 different chemicals when you buy them new. The liner of this cap is the same material, i'm relatively sure.

Well, if you're worried, I guess don't buy it? I suspect it's got some form of rubber/plastic in it to be able to repel water when you wear it to take a shower. Which contain chemicals that might off-gas.

Agreed. If worried, don't buy it!
