Looks like even more restrictive IFRA regs coming.
"â€śEuropean negotiations are ongoing. An initial proposal restricting coumarin and twelve other allergenic substances to 0.01 per cent of a product looks like it has been dropped. This would signal a partial success for the perfume lobby. However, it looks like at least three ingredients will definitely be banned.â€ť And, â€śItâ€™s a breathtaking battle between well-organized business lobbies and patient groups, between scientific researchers and political powers. The new law will be on the table next year".
What is interesting to me, is that I have seen more people that are allergic to the synthetic chemical substitute perfume oils than the natural absolutes.
I guess it's say bye! to some current perfume formulations and look for more reformulations again.
This is insane. They should all take a 25 yr (at least) hiatus.
Pre packaged foods people eat daily are loaded with unhealthy chemicals and preservatives.....and the worry is over natural perfumers substances? oy!
