FRAGRANCES HIDE TOXIC CHEMICAL INGREDIENTS

Nobody wants to give their sweetheart a Valentine's Day gift laced with toxic chemical fragrances. But many of us may unwittingly do so. That's because a major loophole in federal law allows manufacturers to hide potentially hazardous chemicals in product scents, including substances linked to allergies, birth defects, and cancer in animal studies.

Cosmetics companies won't tell you what's in the scents they sell you. So the EWG research team that produced Skin Deep, combed through thousands of gift ideas to pick some that smell great and have no hidden fragrance ingredients.
