FAROUK CASE SETTLED FOR $5,000
The Monitoring and Laboratory Division analyzed samples of Biosilk Finishing Spray, Biosilk Spray Spritz and Biosilk Silk Therapy Hairsprays and found them to exceed the 55 percent VOC standard for hairspray. The case was settled on October 7, 2004 for $5000. Since the discovery of the violations, all Farouk aerosols and non-aerosols hairsprays have been reformulated to meet the 55 percent VOC limit.
