Many window cleaners include propylene glycol and 2-butoxyethanol – the same toxins found in Corexit. As noted by host Dr. Robin Falkov and her guest, Richard Gallemore, there’s no need to use these products when safe alternatives exist.
Richard Gallemore is intimately familiar with the symptoms of Morgellons, having been around a close family member who suffered from this strange disease. Finding conventional remedies ineffective and costly, Gallemore capitalized on his scientific aptitude to formulate and sell his own line of affordable skin care products under the Aeon Botanica banner that are free of petrochemicals, parabens, and animal by-products.
Gallemore last appeared on the radio show on Dec. 9 to discuss safe treatments for Morgellons and other skin diseases.
Propylene glycol is a cosmetic form of mineral oil found in automatic brake and hydraulic fluid and industrial antifreeze. In the skin and hair, propylene glycol works as a humescent, which causes retention of moisture content of skin or cosmetic products by preventing the escape of moisture or water. The Material Safety Data Sheet warns users to avoid skin contact with propylene glycol as this strong skin irritant can cause liver abnormalities and kidney damage.
