However, US NGO Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE) has expressed surprise that the five phthalates were among the ingredients recently added.
Writing in a blog post, WVE director of science and research, Alex Scranton, said: “While we greatly appreciate the improved transparency with respect to the use of these chemicals (which we assume never really had disappeared from use in fragrance in the first place), their potential presence in fragrances we are exposed to everyday is certainly troubling.”
She also questioned why the phthalates DBP and DEHP are included on the list when Ifra claimed ten years ago that these were not in use in the fragrance industry.
