I thought you gals might be interested in this site. It lists various types of cosmetics from lotions to perfumes and gives you a numbered score key of it's hazard to you. 0 to 10

Then you click on the product brand or name and it gives you a full description of why it may be a hazard and the ingredients that are harmful. If you don't see a product you use you can type in the name in the search box on top of the page. It's a great site for people to have the option of knowing this information and you can decide if you still want to continue using that particular cosmetic.

yeah, I've tried a few of the products I use, one of my favorite perfumes is the one from Jean-Paul Gaultier.

It tested 9 :o !!! Can you believe that? Wow, it's very high, I almost died when I saw it and I really do love the fragrance :(

A few other stuff I tried tested rather safe, or, let me say, reasonable, better than that perfume anyway :-(
