34 Migraine-Inducing, Stomach-Turning Toxic Chemicals in Perfume

Post by Tee on Sat Dec 24, 2011 12:03 am

Try as you might to prevent migraines from ruining your day, some migraine triggers such as perfumes are unavoidable. Fragrances found in synthetic perfumes, scented shampoos, lotions, and detergents permeate your atmosphere, triggering migraine headaches, nausea, dizziness, and even slurred speech. That’s because many leading perfumes contain actual poisons that endanger your health, chemicals proven to cause central nervous system disorders, damage to reproductive organs, and cancer.

Do perfume labels include a list of all ingredients?

No. Current federal law allows perfume companies like Calvin Klein and Christian Dior a special loophole for trade secrets- the right to list harmful headache-inducing chemicals as ”fragrances”- an undisclosed cocktail of ingredients, thus protecting their top-secret formula. Most popular perfumes contain chemicals that the EPA recognizes as carcinogens, allergens, and narcotics- some of which the FDA banned years ago, and many of which are identical to the toxins cigarette manufacturers put in their tobacco to hook consumers.

What are the side effects of perfume exposure?
Toxins from perfumes seep into your skin, permeate your lungs, cause damage to your nervous system and ailments like severe headaches, skin rashes, and respiratory illnesses. Here are some of the most common reactions:
