Perfumes' chemical safety unknown!!! PLEASE READ IMPORTANT STUFF!

Soo i was watching the news yesterday and came across this and thought i should share the info here,because a lot of us wear perfume so this hits home!!

(taken from CBS NEWS)
"Top-selling fragrances contain chemicals that can trigger allergic reactions or disrupt hormones but are not listed on labels, according to a new report calling for changes in federal regulations."
", assessed 17 fragrances bought in both countries that were tested by an independent laboratory in California. They included Britney Spears' Curious, Calvin Klein Eternity, Abercrombie & Fitch Fierce and Old Spice body spray."
The tests found a dozen or more chemicals not listed on labels, multiple chemicals that can trigger allergic reactions or disrupt hormones, and substances that have not been assessed for safety by the beauty industry's self-policing review panels, the groups said. 
The findings in the report included:
  • An average of 10 sensitizing chemicals that can trigger allergic reactions such as headaches, wheezing, asthma, infant diarrhea and vomiting and reduced pulmonary function were found in each product.
  • An average of four hormone-disrupting chemicals were found in each product. The chemicals may mimic the hormone estrogen.
So Basically what its saying is that the ingredient list is USELESS it does not even tell what is in it!! 


So i suggest to you some natural perfumes like pure essential oils . Or i love the natural fragrances from LUSH
This is a new one its vanilla of course and smells sooo yummy and its only $39.95!!

Check out the site they have tons more ,i wear the karma scent and get so many compliments on it and a little goes a long way!A bottle usually lasts me more than 6 months and i wear it often!
One spray and im good for the day!! AMAZING AND VEGAN :)
