Warnings on Perfumes hazerdous to your health

Greenpeace Says'

The more stories like this in the mainstream press, the more opportunities
for natural perfumers to promote their healthier alternative products:

36 perfumes carry ‘scent of death,’ says Greenpeace

By Ronnie Calumpita, Reporter

The next time your boyfriend or girlfriend gives you perfume as a Valentine
gift, think twice­he or she might be giving you a scent of “death.”

The environmental group Greenpeace said Monday that at least 36 well-known
perfume brands contain chemicals that are hazardous to health and the
environment.

At a press briefing at the Chicken Bacolod Restaurant in Quezon City,
Francis de la Cruz, Greenpeace Southeast Asia toxics campaigner, said that
phthalate esters and synthetic musks­two toxic man-made chemicals­are
contained in several perfumes.

“These chemicals are known to be persistent and they intensify once they
enter the body by inhaling or through the skin,” he said.

“It’s not acute poisoning but it’s chronic, it stays in our system and
accumulates in the fatty tissues of living organisms,” he added.

De la Cruz said phthalate has been found to have bad effects on the DNA,
male sperm and restricts lung function in men. Synthetic musks can attack
living tissues, he said.

The perfumes containing these toxic agents, he said, are CK One, Eternity
for Men and Eternity for Women of Calvin Klein, Boss in Motion of Hugo
Boss; Envy Me of Gucci, Blue Polo of Ralph Lauren, True Star of Tommy
Hilfiger, She of Armani, Chance and No. 5 of Chanel, Floral Dream of
Adidas, Cinema of Yves Saint Laurent and Sunset of Naomi Campbell.

Greenpeace randomly selected 36 brands of perfume for a quantitative
analysis for phthalates and synthetic musks at the Netherlands laboratory,
TNO Environment and Geosciences, which conducted the study from 2003 to 2004.

De la Cruz said Greenpeace has started meeting the manufacturers of these
perfumes to discuss how these hazardous chemicals can be phased out of
their products.

“Other ingredients that are not harmful can serve as substitutes,” he said.

Greenpeace will coordinate with the Bureau of Food and Drugs to regulate
the entry of the “toxic” perfumes.

“The bureau should make the adjustments on perfumes with hazardous
chemicals once the regulation is passed in Europe,” de la Cruz said.
