Industry Lobby Opposes Disclosure of Fragrance Ingredients

November 30, 2011

If you are worried that ingredients in cleaning products may aggravate your allergies, mess up your sex hormones, or cause cancer, you may just be out of luck when it comes to finding out what they are.

The International Fragrance Association North America and the American Cleaning Institute don't want you to know what chemicals you may be using in your kitchen or bathroom. They are opposing parts of a bill introduced in the House that would require cleaning products to carry ingredients lists on the package label. The bill (HR 3457) was introduced by Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY).
