9 Toxins to Keep Off Your Body

Do you know what “fragrance” means when you see it on the label of a personal care product? Neither do we! That’s because all sorts of chemicals used to scent products can be clumped under the vague term “fragrance” – and they don’t have to be disclosed. Found in everything from shampoo to deodorant, a single product’s secret fragrance mixture can contain potentially hundreds of toxic volatile organic compounds.

The Safe Cosmetics Act of 2011 would require companies to separate out the components of the “fragrance” used in their product, but for now, this obfuscating term sits on our list as the “number two” ingredient to avoid in personal care products.

Our article “Is it Poison?” lists  the top nine ingredients to avoid (known carcinogens, hormone disruptors,  neurotoxins, and more), and links to a downloadable PDF you can print out to keep at home.

    I wonder is there any progress with Safe Cosmetics Act of 2011 ? Can cosmetic manufacturers still hide toxic ingredients behind the frangrance name?
