But in recent decades, synthetic dyes made from harsh chemicals like formaldehyde and heavy metals like lead have become widespread because they dye fabrics quicker and more deeply. However, these have been found to be toxic to workers, causing cancer and discoloring skin, according to research from the Greenpeace Dextox Campaign and the European Chemicals Agency.
