Thanks I'll look into those as well. As far as the testing and MSDS page, its pretty vague. The dermatologist tested is merely a claim without verification. I'm not very concerned, just generally interested (Molecular Biologist ). Additionally, the MSDS page is nothing more than a basic telling of the known hazards of the chemicals used in the product and is prepared by the manufacturer themselves; In this case a manufacturer called "Wonder Marketing, Inc." It is unlikely any kind of extensive research was done because of cost and time restraints.
Regulation is light as long as the paper work looks fine, many things can pass by as an oversight.
The "main" ingredient used in Leather CPR is Lanolin. It's a natural grease that comes from sheep's wool. Sound okay, right? Well...
...a majority of the Lanolin used in products is contaminated with pesticides and insecticides which are carcinogens.
There are a few companies out there that ensure their Lanolin is free of such contaminants through a purification process ($$), but it would be hard to verify who Leather CPR's supplier is.
Because it is impossible to obtain "organic" lanolin due to the nature of caring for sheep with pesticides/insecticides, only a purified version is available.
Unless you're allergic to Lanolin specifically it would be unlikely that you'd experience an immediate side effect; However, science has proven decade after decade that what was once considered safe in the past may be found damaging later. Just food for thought. I'll probably end up using it or a similar product .

My ears usually get pretty warm with most closed cans. My M50's with the pleather on my skin was a hot mess. The MadDogs in comparison can get warm after a while, but I don't find myself sweating or having to remove them from heat discomfort.
