    Recently, CCTV "weekly quality report" and Shanghai consumer protection commission spot check found that more than 40% of the wet towels sold on the market had been detected preservative ingredients, nearly half of which labeled "baby wet towels" products had been detected preservative ingredients. CIT had been found in 21 samples of 50 products sold on the market, with a detection rate of 42%, according to the Shanghai consumer protection commission. CIT was found in 12 of the 25 samples labeled "infant" with a detection rate of 48%, and many of them contained more CIT than ordinary wet towels.
