Ode To Phenoxyethanol
After a spate of questions about the pro’s and con’s of Phenoxyethanol I decided that rather than write a normal response I’d turn my answer into a rap. Here it is!
People been talking ‘bout me, saying bad things on google TV
They think that I’m not fair
That I damage skin and hair
That I give you cancer, that I’ll make you scared
Well stop. Listen up y’all cause this is my rap
I don’t want to make you sick just wanna make contact
With the microbes that cause you stress
But I guess you couldn’t care less
‘Cause my parents are from nasty sorts – benzene, petroleum and that bad co-hort
But don’t be judging where I’m coming from
‘Cause my dirty past doesn’t make my future wrong.
I’m clean and pure and I ain’t a lot of dollars
I’ll blast the bugs that’ll make you holla
And while I work you won’t feel a thing
‘cause your dermatologist says that I’m OK on your skin (as long as you follow the instructions)
So forget your google scholars and your haters who keep on hating
And get with the clean crew whose hard work you’ll be celebrating.
And that’s the word.
