Can your perfume or cologne kill you? The top fragrances that will make you ill

My-Perfume-is-making-me-sickI was researching ingredients in a new beauty product that I had just received to review.  I came across a very helpful website that tells you exactly what ingredients are harmful for you.  There is a scale from 0-10 and each ingredient is ranked by how harmful it is to your skin and body.  10 is high hazard. There is also a nifty little way to find the worst products with the highest ratings.

I found out that some of my most favorite perfumes and colognes are extremely bad for me and my loved ones.  I am angry.  Spread the word and check your fragrances!  This is outrageous!  Even some of the expensive brands are on the 10 rating!


Here are some popular Women fragrances that will probably make you sick.  There are tons rated at 10’s. Check your perfume here!
You can click on the rating and a new window will open to read which ingredients have a high hazard.

From the EWG website:  “It’s our mission at Environmental Working Group to use the power of information to protect human health and the environment. EWG’s Skin Deep database gives you practical solutions to protect yourself and your family from everyday exposures to chemicals. We launched Skin Deep in 2004 to create online safety profiles for cosmetics and personal care products. Our aim is to fill in where industry and government leave off. Companies are allowed to use almost any ingredient they wish. The U.S. government doesn’t review the safety of products before they’re sold. Our staff scientists compare the ingredients on personal care product labels and websites to information in nearly 60 toxicity and regulatory databases. Now in its eighth year, EWG’s Skin Deep database provides you with easy-to-navigate safety ratings for a wide range of products and ingredients on the market.”
