    What is Formaldehyde?

    Formaldehyde is a colorless, strong-smelling gas often used in various industrial applications and consumer products. It's a simple organic compound composed of hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon. Due to its preservative and disinfectant properties, formaldehyde is commonly employed in manufacturing processes for building materials, plastics, textiles, and cosmetics. It's also utilized in medical laboratories for tissue preservation. However, formaldehyde exposure can pose health risks, irritating the eyes, nose, throat, and skin. Prolonged or high-level exposure has been linked to more serious health concerns, including respiratory issues and potential carcinogenicity. Therefore, regulations and safety measures are in place to limit its usage and ensure safe handling.
