Harmful toxins, many of them carcinogens, are found in almost all perfumes and perfumed, fragranced or scented product today, hidden within the insidious ingredient, “perfume”, “parfum, or “fragrance”. Sounds harmless, doesn’t it? But in reality, these three words hide from the consumer the thousands of poisonous synthetic chemicals, made from coal tar, that they contain.

It’s so worth leading a toxin-free life! Luckily, a growing number of toxin-free products are becoming available today, not only in natural health stores but also in regular grocery stores. Shop wisely for the sake of your health and that of your family. Prevention is always better than cure.
