Toxic Ingredient #1: Fragrance

What is FRAGRANCE?

  • Fragrance is a blend of chemicals that can be disruptive to your hormones and give you allergic reactions. 
  • Unfortunately, the blend of chemicals varies from brand to brand and not a lot is know about what is included in their "fragrance" ingredient.
  • Even if a product says "natural fragrance", very little is known about what those ingredients actually are.

What's so bad about FRAGRANCE in my beauty products?

  • Fragrance can be disruptive to your hormones and give you allergic reactions. 
  • Fragrance chemicals have not been tested for safety.
  • In my case, I get ugly headaches as a result of fragrance in my cosmetic products

What should I look for instead?

  • Look for products that contain essential oils. All ingredients need to be disclosed and not hidden under the word fragrance. 
  • Check the http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ to see how they rate the product you are interested in.
