You would have to be living under a vanity table (or not keeping up with The Healthy Home Dream Team® weekly newsletters) to be unaware that synthetic fragrance really stinks! When it comes to the fragrance industry being legally allowed to bombard you with hundreds of chemicals – all under the guise of one word (fragrance) on any given personal care or household cleaning product ingredient list – ignorance surely isn’t bliss!
If you were already aware, you go girl (or, guy)! If not, pick your pretty little self up and keep reading ‘cause there are more dirty secrets when it comes to this industry! Did you know that the term “unscented” slapped on the fancy packaging of your fave product doesn’t necessarily mean the product is fragrance-free? Yep, it could mean that there are still fragrance chemicals in the product intended to mask the scent of the other ingredients! Say what?! That’s right — there are numerous products that are labeled “unscented,” but the ingredient list on the back includes “fragrance” or other chemicals that are common perfume and fragrance ingredients. Don’t know ‘bout you, but in my book – fragrance paired with unscented is – how shall I say – an oxyMORON!
If that isn’t bad enough, today, tens of millions of people suffer from skin and respiratory allergies caused by hidden chemicals in fragrance. Don’t be miss-informed. Move over Justin Timberlake ‘cause we’re bringing sexy back…in the form of full disclosure and natural ingredients! There ain’t nuthin sexy about cancer causing; hormone disrupting; neurotoxic; or respiratory-irritating chemicals lurking in the products designed to make you feel attractive. Besides,
A smile is the best makeup any girl can wear. ~Marilyn Monroe
