The traditional spray foam used for many revelers during carnival can cause serious damage to health, according to alert the Health Department of the Federal District. The product composition presents substances which, in contact with skin can cause allergic reactions and rashes, and irritation in the throat and eyes.

Furthermore, the gas used to make the mechanism function is derived spray oil highly flammable and partly responsible for the destruction of the ozone layer.

The guidance is not to use the product directly on the skin and always divert the Jets face foam. If there's spray contact with some part of the body, the recommendation is to wash the area with enough water. Persisting symptoms, the reveler should seek medical attention.

Since 2007, the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) establishes safety criteria that must be followed for the manufacture and marketing of these products. Toxicological testing should be done to show that the spray is not absorbed by the skin and all packaging must submit specifications as the manufacturer's name and what to do in case of an accident.
