Fragrance

𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝘁𝗼𝘅𝗶𝗰 𝗺𝘆𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝗼𝗳 “𝗳𝗿𝗮𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲” has been discussed in this community countless times, and yet… I still feel like I need to share more!

»» When working towards eliminating toxic exposure, transparency on your labels is VITAL!

 “Fragrance” is a loophole that needs to be avoided. There are NO laws requiring the ingredients in fragrance to be disclosed to consumers and it’s always a toxic storm that compromises your health.

»» After years and years of asking for it… the International Fragrance Association finally provided an alphabetical list of individual ingredients/chemicals/compounds that can be utilized in any fragrance composition.

 

𝗧𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗹𝗶𝘀𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝟯,𝟭𝟲𝟰 𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗺𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹𝘀 𝗹𝗼𝗻𝗴.

 

»» Plugging those individual ingredients into the EWG database tells us that… 1 in 20 earned a “high” hazard score (7-10 of 10), and 1 in 6 rated at least a “moderate” hazard score (3-10 of 10). 25 of them scored a 10, the highest toxicity rating.

 

Most humans have daily exposure multiple times to any number of proprietary “fragrances”, and each time it accumulates in your body. Fragrance can be found in…

•Sunscreen

•Laundry detergent

•Fabric softener

•Dryer sheets

•Air freshener

•Perfume

•Body spray

•Dish soap

•Hand soap

•Candles

•Cleaning supplies

•Shampoo and conditioner

•Body wash

•Body Lotion

•Foundation

•Primer

•Lipstick

•Lipgloss

•Hair spray

•Dry shampoo

•Shaving cream

•Deodorant

•Nail polish

•Moisturizer

•Night cream

•Cleansers

•Acne treatments

•Sunless Tanner

… and the list goes on!

 

Thankfully it’s easy to spot of you read those labels!
•”Fragrance”
•”Parfum”
•”Aroma”


All the same mess! If it’s being absorbed in through your skin or it’s being inhaled… it’s not doing your health any favors.
