Worlds scariest ingredients


Let's play a game. What is this?:

Ingredients: Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Fragrance, Sodium Lauroamphoacetate, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Polyquaternium-10, Disodium EDTA, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Orange #4.

I don't really know what's scarier: The eleven sylable monstrosity 'Methylchloroisothiazolinone' or the simple-yet-ominous 'Orange #4'.

As long as theres no Hydric Acid. That stuff will kill you.

I hear it can be nearly as dangerous as Dihydrogen Monoxide.

Scary stuff.

Orange #4 - hands down.

The rest I have enough organic chemistry kicking around in my head to sort of picture, and they're just friendly ketones and alcohols and stuff. But something they can't translate in the poetry of chemistry? Terrifying!

EDTA is sort of scary too. I don't think it's actually all that harmful, but it INTERCOLLATES INTO YOUR DNA man!

My guess is some sort of Orange scented/coloured body wash. Axe perhaps?
