There are more than 4,000 chemicals used in synthetic perfumery. Majority of synthetic chemicals used in perfumery are not required to be labelled, they can be present in a formula without being declared on the packaging.
HIDDEN CHEMICALS IN SYNTHETIC PERFUMES
There is growing scientific evidence that many undeclared chemicals used in synthetic perfumes can have potential carcinogenic or teratogenic as well as allergenic effects. Further studies accompanied by stricter labelling measures are required to protect both consumer (particularly pregnant women) and environmental health.
