How to choose and use natural fragrances

Fragrances can make us smell fresh and feel great—but today, there’s much more to consider than whether to choose a musky or floral scent.
For those label readers out there, picking perfume can be tricky. Companies aren’t required to list the ingredients used in fragrances, and the word “fragrance” on a label is usually a catchall term for a cocktail of any number of chemicals. According to a report by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, popular fragrances contain an average of 14 secret chemicals from a pool of 3,100 chemicals utilized by the fragrance industry. Not surprisingly, “fragrance” is now among the nation’s top five allergens and is found not only in perfumes but also in shampoo, skin care products, household cleaners and more. Last year’s critically acclaimed documentary Stink! explored the issue in depth, asking the question: Why are toxic chemicals hiding in America?
The good news: As more consumers stop and smell the roses, companies are creating plant-based products that lend a beautiful scent—with no secret chemicals. And although current cosmetics laws don’t require companies to be transparent about what’s in fragrance, a new verification from the Environmental Working Group (EWG) encourages brands to rise to the occasion. The "EWG Verified: For Your Health" seal leverages the EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database safety ratings and requires companies to fully disclose ingredient lists. “We are particularly happy to see the unveiling of fragrance in these standards,” says Cynthia Barstow, executive director of nonprofit Protect Our Breasts. “So many chemicals are found in that single proprietary recipe.”
