Fragrance is present in most deodorants, shampoos, sunscreens, skin care, body care and baby care products.  Many of the compounds in fragrances are carcinogenic or otherwise toxic.  “Fragrance on a label can indicate the presence of up to 4,000 separate ingredients.  Most or all, are synthetic.  Symptoms reported to the FDA have included headaches, dizziness, rashes, skin discoloration, violent coughing and vomiting, and allergic skin irritation.  Clinical observation by medical doctors have shown that exposure to fragrances can affect the central nervous system, causing depression hyperactivity, irritability, inability to cope, and other behavioral changes,”  Home Safe Home.
