A third of all fragrance chemicals currently in use are either known to be toxic, or considered potentially toxic by scientists around the world.
New data compiled by environmental health non-profit, Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE), reveals that a third of all fragrance chemicals currently in use are either known to be toxic, or considered potentially toxic by scientists around the world. This data fully compliments a report released today by Breast Cancer Prevention Partners (BCPP), which tested household products and clearly revealed the presence of harmful fragrance chemicals linked to cancer, hormone disruption, reproductive harm, and respiratory toxicity that do not appear on the label.
In a major victory for ingredient safety, SC Johnson (Glade®, Windex®, Pledge®) confirmed last week that it is transitioning away from the toxic fragrance chemical, Galaxolide.
Top scientists join us to express their concerns about the environmental impacts of Galaxolide, a toxic fragrance chemical that is ending up in the environment and in you.
