Consumer safety groups say there are more to these fragrances than meets the eye.

Consumer safety groups say there are more to these fragrances than meets the eye.

In a report released yesterday, the Canadian and U.S. organizations say testing shows many of the most popular brands of fragrances contain potentially hazardous ingredients not listed on their labels.

Canada’s Environmental Defence and the U.S.-based Campaign for Safe Cosmetics had an independent California lab test 17 products — four bought in Canada and 13 in the United States — for 40 chemicals. The analysis found that 38 of the chemicals were not disclosed on labelling, with an average of 14 undeclared chemicals per product.
