For those who are concerned about avoiding products with dangerous fragrance or flavor ingredients, it can be all but impossible to do so because, not only are companies allowed to sell products that contain toxic chemicals, many don't even disclose these ingredients.
Great news! SB 312, the Fragrance and Flavors Right to Know Act, has passed the California legislature. TAKE ACTION now to make sure Governor Newsom signs this important ingredient disclosure bill into law!
Fragrances are well known to be sources of VOCS; emissions which contribute to air pollution. But they have always had a sweetheart deal with California Air Resources Board. It's time to change that. TAKE ACTION!

If passed, SB 312 will be the first bill in the nation to require disclosure of fragrance ingredients for personal care and professional salon products.
Fragrances and flavors are found in thousands of beauty and personal care products, yet there is no state or federal regulatory oversight of the safety of these ingredients. Furthermore no federal law requires the disclosure of fragrance or flavor ingredients to consumers, manufacturers or even regulatory agencies. This labeling loophole allows dozens – sometimes even hundreds – of chemicals to hide under the word ‘fragrance’ on product labels.
