I am astounded by how so many people are insensitive to what I believe are harsh chemicals.

Often I will stand next to people who have used particular hygiene products or soaps and I feel like choking, and physically feel horrible afterwards. I am very surprised than they can bathe in this stuff and not notice a thing.

I know it is not just my imagination because I can distinguish very specific fragrances and chemical odors that cause particular reactions. Also I can say that this is not an allergic reaction. I feel these chemicals are very dangerous.

I think these chemicals pervade a great number of commercial personal hygiene products, soaps and colognes.

I notice many European (e.g. French and German) and even British Isles people will not bathe for days and then just bathe themselves in this cologne, thinking that people don't notice. Certainly, they themselves do not notice. Maybe it is an ancestry thing that makes them immune and insensitive to such odors. I know for certain many Europeans practice this because a friend of mine was actually made fun of by a group of Germans when they discovered that he took a shower every day and they found it amusing. Anyway its pretty gross, and likely unhealthy in more ways than just one.

Suspecting that these chemicals were not healthy for you, I did a Google search -cologne cause cancer

And it came up with a bunch of links:

Expert Panel Confirms that Fragrance Ingredient Can Cause Cancer

Toxic Perfume Chemicals Linked to Cancer ..

Amongst many..

I would not be surprised if cancer causing agents were intentionally put into personal hygiene products as part of a depopulation campaign.

Possibly depopulation, failing that outright moneymaking at any cost.
I am actually so sensitive I can't even use the emollients that dermatologists recommend!
They are all harsh petrochemical derivatives.
I have come to the conclusion they have no interest in healing people, only sales for the pharmaceutical and petrochemical industry.

Most deodorants use aluminium which has been linked to Alzheimers and cancer.
All creams contain preservatives that are carcinogenic.

Only natural products are safe.

Great Post. People need to be more aware of this.

This is the ingredients of Pantene Shampoo


This is what you're putting into your children's hair, everything applied topically is absorbed into the bloodstream.

In an informed world, "which we use to live in, hmm , can't label the food from which country it came from", anyway, I'm a firm believer that hair coloring is a major cause of many medical problems, such as high blood pressure, notice I didn't say "brain tumors". Hmm, I wonder why. In japan there has been an increase of males with brain tumor due to that they like to color their hair blonde.

What a gift you have, sounds like your sense of smell is more sensitive than others. They may be dousing themselves with cologne because their sense of smell isn't.

You can hire that out to fragrance companies, they pay well for that I think.

If you eat good wholesome food, with very little meat, you don't have offensive body odour.

Organic Vegans have very little body odour, and their Number 2's are hardly smellable.

OP, you are right.
However if you go down that route, you have to avoid everything from shampoos to bubble baths etc.

Having worked in a chem lab for many years I also wonder when women put several different things onto their faces if they are concerned about chemical reactions between the ingredients of various creams and moisturizers etc. I wouldn't just willy nilly mix two or more chemicals together but women do this every day.

In the end however I have to say that those amounts are minuscule and as most people my age survived the 70s with all it's formaldehyde in everything, we'll probably be ok with anything else, if used in moderation.

This.

Although the amount of chemicals we use every day probably doesn't do us any good. I think sometimes people underestimate the human body's capabilities.

small amounts are absorbed and REMOVED by the body naturally.

Not if all these cancer cases are related to it. Then they're doing a decent job.

The TLDR version: Not everything causes cancer. Yes bathing is good.

The long version: Maybe.

"But...", you say, "...scientific studies! Google!"
You'll get just as accurate an answer if you asked a random toddler "Does Cologne and fragrances cause cancer?" than if you Googled it.

It's much like checking WebMD with your symptoms. You'll always end up with some sort of cancer.

Over the years there has been pretty much enough "scientific studies" that claim that everything we eat, drink, smoke, wear, breathe or look at either causes cancer or prevents cancer.



This is why you shouldn’t believe that exciting new medical study

Everything we eat both causes and prevents cancer

John Oliver also did an episode on this.

I've seen healthy people succumb to cancer. I've seen chain smokers live to 85.

That being said, IF colognes/perfumes cause cancer because of chemicals my money would be on synthetic aromas and not the more expensive natural variations.

However, if it was true that Cologne and fragrances cause cancers, then, statistically speaking a lot more people should have cancer... Undoubtedly unnatural chemicals are bad for you, bad just like everything else in life - if you overdo it. IMO.

Except for bathing. No amount of fragrance or cologne can mask the smell of someone that hasn't seen clean water for a couple of days. Bathing is good.

LOL What?? I shower twice a day, and most Brits and other Europeans I know shower every day. And I have never met anybody laughing at others for showering every day. Just because you met a couple of dirty people, don't assume it is 'an ancestry thing'. Ridiculous. Where are you from?

What's wrong with them? Let's see:
* Behentrimonium Chloride, extracted from the seeds of Brassica Rapa (Rape Mustard - a plant). Used because its oils are good at conditioning.
* Cetearyl is a mixture of fatty alcohols, used in natural beauty products too.
* Ethylhexyl is another organic compound. etc etc
Most 'natural organic' shampoos have the same ingredients.


everything applied topically is absorbed into the bloodstream.


Please provide evidence as that's not true, it's actually really difficult for shampoos and creams to be absorbed as absorption dependes on the size of the molecules, how it is transported, solubility etc.

Cheap Perfume!!!

Loved it when the factory slaves walked past me, it was in my nostrils for hours. Luckily i dont work in a factory anymore, unluckily i dont get that fragrance anymore, i miss it

Being in the UK, these people would bathe or shower everyday then ........... spray the cheap stuff, they were not unhygienic just overly perfumed

Perhaps i have a thing about Yves Saint Laurent, i know it a mile off

That is good news.
I am topically applying air that contains oxygen to my skin. I should be able to stop breathing through my lungs and use my skin to oxygenate my blood.


It’s far too easy to present a frightening statistic in a believable manner, which is why it’s important to question the motives of a flashy headline that proclaims death by lipstick/body lotion/etc. It’s also easy to present distorted research on skin penetration and absorption—as it can be complicated to research to find the truth. The facts are that very little is capable of penetrating skin, and even less is absorbed into our body. So the next time you read a headline, judge for yourself what’s true by asking questions and consider the source!

The skin provides an effective barrier between the organism and the environment, preventing the invasion of pathogens and fending off chemical and physical assaults, as well as the unregulated loss of water and solutes.

Disgusting.

I wear perfume. Nice perfume . But it's put on after bathing.
Under clean clothes.
It's not a mask.
