Seminar: What’s That Smell? Fragranced Products in Our Lives

Thousands of synthetic chemicals are used to create fragranced products. Some of these chemicals have been linked to health impacts ranging from eye and skin irritation to hormone imbalance and increased risk of breast cancer.

Participants will learn:
1. Which toxic chemicals are commonly found in fragranced products.
2. Current research on fragrances.
3. The fragrance industry's standards of safety.
4. The movement for fragrance-free zones.
5. Online resources that allow participants to look up fragranced products.
