Let’s face it – synthetic perfume and fragrance… STINK!

Green Diva Meg recently had a chance to speak with Lisa Beres about artificial fragrance and what we need to know about perfumes, colognes, and the “fragrances” found in household products.  Listen to this Green Divas Health & Beauty podcast… (GD Editor)

When you discover the sinister chemicals lurking behind these words, you’ll realize they should more appropriately be named Eau de Nausea or Toxic Toilette and why you’ll want to discover nontoxic perfume for you and those around you!

The EPA found the following health problems associated with synthetic fragrance exposure: asthma, fatigue, eye irritation, sinusitis, skin problems, kidney and liver damage, immune system damage, nausea, blood pressure change (drop or rise), cancer, and even death due to respiratory failure. More than 95% of the chemicals used in fragrances are neurotoxic and derived from petroleum (um, ew!). These have been known to be harmful to the brain and nervous system. The term “fragrance,” “fragrance oil,” “perfume oil,” or “parfum” may be masking the presence of phthalates which are often used to disperse fragrance in perfumes (read: Shhhh! The Fragrance Industry: SECRETS Revealed). 

Environmental Working Group (EWG) researchers found more than 75% of products with the ingredient “fragrance” contained phthalates (THAL ates) which have been shown to reduce sperm counts, linked to thyroid and reproductive disorders, liver and breast cancer. These may be listed as DBP (di-n-butyl phthalate) or DEP (diethyl phthalate) on the ingredients label.
