why it’s better to stink sometimes
When it comes to living a healthier, toxin-free lifestyle, the #1 product ingredient to avoid is fragrance (also often listed on labels as perfume, parfum, or cologne). Fragrance’s only purpose is to smell good. It has no other purpose, which make you wonder, is it really worth the risk?
Fragrance is composed of any number of undisclosed chemicals. Those ingredients don’t have to be divulged on product labels because companies are legally allowed to use the term “fragrance” to protect their trade secrets instead of telling customers what’s really in their products.
Some of the most commonly used toxic chemicals in fragrance are on our ingredients to avoid list, including:
- Phthalates: linked with birth defects, breast cancer, diabetes, obesity, autism, and ADHD
- Parabens: endocrine disruptors, which mimic estrogen, linked with breast cancer, allergic reactions, and skin rashes
Go fragrance free!
Be cautious when choosing products labeled “unscented.” Companies sometimes use fragrance to mask unpleasant odors in their products. Instead, look for “fragrance free” and check the ingredient list for “fragrance.”
