Introduction:You may not be getting quite the bargain you were looking for when purchasing counterfeit perfume. Are you aware of the dangers lurking in a bottle of fake perfume?
Fake perfumes contain dangerous chemicals such as antifreeze and insulting ingredients such as urine, according to a report by ABC News. Why urine? Manufacturers of phony scents use urine to balance the pH. Further tests have proven that fake perfume will grow bacteria in a Petri dish.
In a segment of "Good Morning News" other dangerous ingredients lurking in knock-off designer products include vodka and acetyl cedrine. (chemicals used in plastics and rubber) These ingredients may burn your skin.
Even the skin's protective barrier doesn't completely block dangerous chemicals lurking in fake perfume from entering the bloodstream. Also, your lungs are susceptible when you spray on phony scents.
Since we spray scent on wrists and neck, these sensitive parts of our body are subject to burning and contact dermatitis when exposed to the dangers that lurk in fake perfume.
Look for the manufacturer's logo. Check the spelling before purchasing any fragrance product. Don't buy your perfume on-line unless it is from a reputable manufacturer. Flea markets and kiosks in malls sell fake perfumes where danger lurks at a reduced price.
The best way to recognize a phony fragrance is by sniffing the bottle cap.
Now that you aware of the despicable ingredients and physical reactions are you really getting a bargain, or simply paying a reduced price for something that may make you sick?
We should also check any perfume we receive as a gift to ensure it is real, not fake.
Another well deserved H5
Thanks for this important information. H5
WOW! Thanks for the list of top five dangers lurking in fake perfumes. That is really shocking! H5!
Educational and meaningful for health sake. You have opened my eyes to something I was not aware of on the market. My daughter buys all my perfumes and she has good taste to only buy name brands. Coty's Lorigan and White Shoulders are my latest. I have another daughter that wanted some samples and I ended up the recipient of the discards.Thank you for promoting this info for all to see; and very well done.
I'm with Penelope; I'm careful on perfumes as I hate heavy scents on me and on other people. Drives me nuts especially in winter when clothes are not dry cleaned as often. The stuff is toxic when it's layered on top of itself time and time again.
Wow! I had no idea!
I can't handle the chemicals at all. Good list.
I'm sort of careful on perfumes. I like the nice middle-of-the road prices. Faith Hill and Burberry are my preferences. Having said that, your first item should be widely read. I am shocked. The whole list is very informative and needed. H5
