On 15 May 2020 The Guardian reported:
From candles and cleaning products to lotions, soaps [etc] we live in a scented world. What is lurking in the air? About 4,000 chemicals are currently used to scent products, but you won't find any of them listed on a label. Fragrance formulations are considered a 'trade secret' and therefore protected from disclosure -- even to regulators or manufacturers. Instead, one word, fragrance, appears on ingredients lists for countless cosmetics, personal care, and cleaning products. A single scent may contain anywhere from 50 to 300 distinct chemicals. Three-quarters of the toxic chemicals detected in a test of 140 products came from fragrance, reported a 2018 BCPP [Breast Cancer Prevention Partners] study of personal care and cleaning brands. The chemicals identified were linked to chronic health issues, including cancer.
