Household Products Database

I found a link recently to the Household Products Database. Created by the National Library of Medicine, it provides health & safety information on household products.

You can look up information by product or ingredient. For example, enter Fragrance in the ingredients search and you get this long list. I didn’t read the entire list, but I did look through it.

I learned some interesting things. For example, did you know you could buy Cologne for your pet??? I knew that if you took a pet to be groomed that they put stinky stuff on them. But worse – Crest Toothpaste is on the list as containing fragrance??!? What in the world? Why? Oh, sorry, probably cannot apply logic to this… 😕

  1. did you notice the unscented products that have fragrance as the 1st ingredient?

    -Aussie Sprunch Spray, Non Aerosol, Unscented

    -Olay Bath Bar, Sensitive Skin, Unscented

    -Nivea for Men After Shave Balm, Sensitive Skin, Unscented-Paste

    -Nivea for Men After Shave Balm, Sensitive Skin, Unscented-Liquid

    -Secret Wide Solid Antiperspirant & Deodorant (Low Zirconium), Unscented

    -Clairol 3 in 1 Condition Hairspray Extra Hold, Unscented, Aerosol

  2. That’s why you have to be very careful in reading labels. There is no legal FDA definition for Fragrance-Free so it can mean whatever someone wants it to mean. Reading ingredients is always a good idea. If fragrance is mentioned at all, then what the label says elsewhere doesn’t really matter.
