  1. HI,
    This link is no longer working, could I have a replacement please?http://depts.washington.edu/exposure

    Thanks 🙂

  2. I found the place on my post that had the old link and and removed it. It may be in other blog posts too, as some were written before she moved her info over.
    Hopefully if anyone finds any other links that don’t work, they will comment too, so that I can remove or fix them.

    What did the analyses find?

    No law in the U.S. requires disclosure of all chemical ingredients in a consumer product.

    No law in the U.S. requires disclosure of any ingredients in a chemical mixture called “fragrance.”

    The six products emitted 58 different volatile organic compounds (VOCs), for a collective total of 98 VOCs.

    Of these identified VOCs, 11 are regulated as toxic or hazardous under federal laws, with 3 classified as Hazardous Air Pollutants.

    Virtually none of the identified VOCs were listed on any product label or material safety data sheet.

    What do these findings mean?

    Fragranced consumer products contain and emit numerous ingredients—including some classified as toxic or hazardous—that are not disclosed to the public on either the product label or material safety data sheet.
