Perfumes are poisnous - Regulate cosmetics, especially perfumes, and ban the use of toxic chemicals

Additional Information

Petro-chemicals, and other harmful synthetic compounds are being used in cosmetics and other everyday products.

Perfumes use highly volatile toxic chemicals that can affect other people apart from those who wear them. I have termed this ‘passive toxicity’, Smoking was banned for that reason. Many chemicals used in perfumes can enter other people’s blood streams via the nose and mouth.

They are causing allergic reactions and may have long-term, serious health implications for humans.

The industry is self-regulated = unregulated.

Extensive research should be carried out with each individual chemical.

Only products that have been independently tested and certified safe for human and environmental use should be used.

Certified synthetic chemicals should be heavily taxed to discourage their use in favour of natural alternatives.
