What is Butyl Cellosolve & Why Are Alternatives Necessary?

Negative health effects of short-term exposure to this chemical include, irritation to the eyes, nose, throat, and skin, dizziness, unconsciousness, abdominal pain, nausea, and more. Long term effects include blood disorders, central nervous system depression, pulmonary edema, and liver or kidney damage. It has also been shown to be capable of damaging developing fetuses.
