The Fragrance-free Checklist


It seems like the best way to clear up some confusion about being fragrance-free, is to provide a checklist of products and places where fragrances that can make you not be fragrance-free are found, so that you don’t inadvertently bring fragrances with you when going  somewhere with a strict fragrance-free policy.

The checklist addresses some common misconceptions about what being fragrance-free really means.

Being fragrance-free is about more than not using perfume or cologne.
It’s also not about skipping deodorant, as some people seem to think.

The checklist provides information about how to check products for fragrance, as well as a list of frequently used products that have  fragrances added, so that you can check your labels.

  7. I became seriously sensitive to all scent and fragrance this last two years, my home, myself, my husband are now chemical smell free.. I have to wear a special mask to keep out all fragrance when I go outside my home, visiting family… horrible isolated life I now have… the world it polluted in unnecessary scents…
