Synthetic Perfume is really bad for you!
I have not worn perfume for many years, it started when I was pregnant with my eldest daughter and I have not worn a synthetic perfume since. When I was pregnant, the smell made me feel instantly ill, dizzy and light headed. So I started to research why? I was horrified with what I found out.
Fragrance is a ‘cluster ingredient’ that can contain up to 4000 chemicals. Phthalates, used in fragrances to cause longevity of scent, are plasticizing ingredients and are, according to Professor Carole Hungerford, the number one endocrine disruptor and the number one ‘gender bender’ wreaking havoc on our delicate hormonal (endocrine system). A small amount of these synthetic estrogens can cause major challenges. Only 800 of the approximately 4,000 chemicals used as fragrances have been tested for toxicity, either alone or in combination with others.
These chemicals are so bad that “the U.S. National Academy of Sciences has grouped fragrances with insecticides, heavy metals, and solvents as categories of chemicals that should be given high priority for neurotoxicity testing.” (Gill Deacon).
But the good news is you can still smell amazing, and feel great
