Fragrance is now considered among the top five allergens in North America and European countries and is associated with a wide range of skin, eye and respiratory reactions according to the study commissioned by The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.
The more I discover about the health effects of fragrances, the more fervent I get about getting information in front of people! Fragrances are ubiquitous in personal beauty products and cleaning products that we use in our homes. It is almost impossible to find products that are fragrance free! Last year, we organized a Fragrance Free Day and brought together a veterinarian, a chemist and moi to answer questions posed via Twitter…and we are doing it again this year!
I am hosting the 2nd Annual Fragrance Free Day on Thursday, August 11, 2011, which will include a live Twitter chat from 12 Noon – 1 PM Eastern Standard Time.
Like last year, we will have a panel – a veterinarian, a chemist and me – to answer your questions. So mark the date and time, and send in your questions to #fagrancefreeday on Twitter. Watch the live feed of questions and answers on http://www.twitter.com/seayu.
Please join us so we can answer your questions. Keep getting educated on why you should NOT purchase and use fragranced products in our home around your pets and family.
