“The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics (a coalition of some 100 organizations, including the EWG, all advocating for transparency in the personal-care industry) commissioned independent laboratory tests on 17 best selling fragrances and found an average of 14 hidden chemicals in each.
Among those hidden chemicals are solvents, stabilizers, preservatives, and dyes, including compounds associated with hormone disruption, allergic reactions, and accumulation in human tissue—and many of them have never been assessed for safety in personal-care products” - Goop —Why Perfume Is the Last—and Perhaps Most Important—Frontier in Clean Beauty
