No more laundry detergent or smell

Research for better environment

“Tenants in Malmö Sweden now becomes the first in the world to test a technology that cleans clothes in cold water and no detergent. Laundry room installed in two high-rise residential Nydala in Malmo used by 70 tenants and has according to owner minimal environmental impact.
– No more buying laundry detergent and fabric softener and additionally wash machines with cold water. This is something that we are the first in the world to offer. It is clean and odor-free, says Magnus novel that is project manager at MKB. In the installed laundry room is a facility in a cabinet that filter the water and de-ionize it. When the deionized water come in contact with the fabrics in the washing machine breaking the ionic bond between the fibers and dirt.

MKB Fasighets AB has high hopes for the technology. Totally are washed six million washes in the property company laundries every year and to wash with cold water would give a very large energy savings. Detergent and fabric softener is no cost for the property, but also here the company sees many benefits as it would save the environment by creating less pollution, less packaging waste and less risk of allergies.
– We want to contribute to ecologically sustainable Malmö, says Magnus Röman. By testing this solution we hope to find one of the ways that can help us achieve our ambitious goals.

In the project, electricity consumption, water consumption and customer satisfaction will be measured during the six months that the company will then decide how to proceed.” aktuellhallbarhet.se

Tested: Eyeglass cleaning wipes – Brillerenseservietter

(Scroll down for English)

Brillerenseservietter

I dag var jeg på Europris igjen for å kjøpe en termometer, det hadde de ikke en slik jeg ville ha men jeg fant denne som sto på hyllen ved siden av. Det jeg la meg merke i var at det sto parfymefri på pakningen så jeg tenkte at dette må jeg prøve.

image

Renseservietter for briller for en billig penge.

De innholder ikke parfyme, dok har de en lukt som av sprit eller annet liknende middel. Jeg har ikke tatt astmamedisin siden i morges og da jeg stakk nesen i de kjente jeg ingen umiddelbar reaksjon, dette tross at jeg normalt reagerer mye på vaskesprit og andre liknende alkoholer. Det kom bare et lite host så om jeg trenger vaskeservietter så kan jeg leve med det, det blir godkjente med forbehold.

Disse bør være rimelig trygge å bruke. Dok er de ikke merket med noen anbefaling fra noe astma og allergiforbund. Du bør prøve de med forsiktighet om du kjøper de slik at du er trygg. Alle har jo som kjent ulik alvorlighetsgrad på astmaen.

image

Hver pakning innholder flere små pakninger som du enkelt kan ta med i vesken eller lommen.

Brillerenseserviettene bør bare brukes for briller med herdet glass. Det er også velegnet til pc- og tv-skjermer av glass, speil, innsiden av bilruter, kameralinser, hjelmvisirer av glass og kunststoff.

Det burde ikke måtte nevnes (ingen er vel så dum at dem gjør det?) men det står at “må ikke brukes på kontaktlinser”.

Du kan kjøpe de bl.a hos Europris.
www.Europris.no

Ellers bruker jeg til vanlig kun lunket vann og en myk klut, om jeg trenger noe sterkere bruker jeg en liten dråpe parfymefritt og fargefritt oppvaskmedel i tillegg. Dette kan jo være litt vanskelig å  ha med seg i lommen slik at det kan være greit å ha noe man kan ta med seg.

About the test 
This is a pure inhale test of the products. I test the products on my self. This is a real life asthma product suitability test done at home in real life settings. I am my own guinea pig. Whitelisted products should be safe for you to use, while blacklisted are not safe. But as with all sensitivities some are more sensitive than others, always try new products with care. Make the first time trying it gently, if you got a skin condition try it on a small area, and washing agents on a hidden area or a cloth you can afford to waste.

My lungs are very picky when it comes to hygiene products, beauty products, hair products, washing and cleaning products and so on. Products not meeting the standards of no asthma reaction are blacklisted.

Please, buy such items whitelisted as gifts for friends and family. They are designed and made for a better personal health and are more environmentally beneficial than the fragranced ones. Use them yourself, care about your fellow-man. Do not make other people sick with your fragrance presence.

Eyeglass Cleaning Wipes

Today I went to Europris again to buy a thermometer, I did not find what I wanted but I found this one which stood on the shelf next to. I noticed that it stood fragrance free on the pack so I thought this I must try.

Cleaning cloth for glasses for a cheap price.
They contain no perfumes, still they have an odor of alcohol or other similar means. I have not taken asthma medicine since this morning and when I stuck my nose in it I sensed no immediate reaction, this despite that I normally react much on disinfectants, degreasers or other similar. It came just a little coughing so if I need cleaning wipes so I can live with it, it will be approved since normally one do not stick ones nose in it and it do not stink from far.

These should be reasonably safe to use. But please note they are not marked with any recommendation of any asthma and allergy associations. You should try those with caution if you buy them in a way that you are safe. Everyone has as we all know varying severity of asthma.

Each pack contains several small packages that you can easily carry in your purse or pocket.

Manufacturer
Sterling  Polish Company A/S
www.sterlingpolish.dk

Cleaning wipes for glasses should only be used for glasses with tempered glass. It is also suitable for PC and TV screens of glass, mirror, inside of windshields, camera lenses, helmet visor of glass and plastic.

It should not have to be mentioned (no one is so stupid that them do it?) But it says “must not be used on contact lenses.”

You can buy the product mentioned in Europris.
www.Europris.no

Otherwise I normally use only lukewarm water and a soft cloth, if I need something stronger, I use a small drop of perfume-free and color-free dishwashing as well. This could be a bit difficult to carry around in your pocket so that it can be nice to have something you can take with you.

Batteridrevne lys – Battery-powered candles

(Scroll down for English)

Frisk luft og kos med lys

Ofte om man har sensitive luftveier da må man avstå fra meget i livet. De senere år har det komt mange varianter av batteridrevne lys, kubbelys, telys osv. Du kan altså ha kos med lys på bordet uten å forurense luften inne.

Da man brenner vanlige lys eller duftlys da spres mange forskjellige kjemiske stoffer til luften som helse- og miljøskadelige stoffer som for eksempel krom, muskxylen, karbondioksid (CO2), nitrogendioksid (NO2), tungmetaller, nanopartikler, Lettflyktige organiske stoffer (forkortes VOC fra engelsk volatile organic compounds) natrium og kalium salter m.m. Lys av parafin avgir mer partikler enn rene stearinlys. I et laboratoriestudie med blåfarget parafin lys kan forhøyede nivåer av metaller som kobber, kobolt, bly og sink m.m. måles i luften.

Ved brenning av telys og stearinlys vil en del av stearinet forbrenne ufullstendig og danne sotpartikler i luften. Noen (men ikke utelukkende disse) av de lys som avgir skadelige stoffer til inneluften er er stearinlys, parafinlys, duftlys, glimmerlys, gelelys, lys med påtrykt dekor, soyalys, bivoks- eller palmelys m.m. Alt man brenner avgir stoffer til luften.

“Brænder du stearinlys i to timer om dagen, står de for næsten to tredjedele af den samlede indendørs forurening.” Videnskap.dk

Stearinlys kan gi samme inneluft som moderat røyking innendørs og i alle fall tilsvarende bidrag man kan få fra utendørsluftforurensning, det er derfor viktig å unngå å brenne lys inne. Hver gang du blåser ut et telys, frigjøres 350 000 sotpartikler – det er like mye som fra en sigarett! Når stearinlys brenner vil en del av stearinet forbrenne ufullstendig. Dette delvis forbrente kullholdige materialet vil danne sotpartikler i luften. Disse partiklene består av en kompleks blanding av stoffer, fra rent kull til sammensatte organiske forbindelser. Flere lys i et rom med dårlig ventilasjon kan føre til luftveisirritasjoner, astmabesvær, svimmelhet og hodepine. Mens stearin er en fornybar råvare, er parafin en fossil råvare som slipper ut skadelige klimagasser og avgir flere sotpartikler. Parafin er i tillegg mer brannfarlig. Undersøkelser viser at vi, dersom vi ikke hadde brukt parafinlys, ville redusert klimagassutslippene tilsvarende det å fjerne 21 000 biler fra veiene. Duftlys er verstingen for astmatikere og allergikere, de sprer stoffer til luften som er allergiframkallende, irriterende på luftveiene og utløser astmaanfaller. Disse lysene lukter godt, men gjør ikke kroppen noen tjeneste. En undersøkelse ved Københavns universitet, basert på 78 personer i 58 boliger i København viser at bruk av brennende lys kan være farlig: Forskerne observerte nedsatt lungefunksjon og tegn på betennelse i lungene hos personer i hjem hvor det er mange partikler fra levende lys. Ifølge overlege Kåre Refvem, som er spesialist i lungesykdommer og indremedisin, er det ingen tvil om at sotpartiklene man puster inn fra levende lys påvirker lungene. Det er en del mennesker som reagerer på slike sotpartikler, det skjer en reaksjon når man blir eksponert for forurenset luft: Slimhinnen blir irritert, det dannes mer slim og det kan forekomme en betennelsesprosess i bronkiene. I praksis, over tid, kan hyppig bruk av telys og andre levende lys blant annet forverre en tilstand av kols eller astma, og noen holder seg til og med hjemme fra selskaper, for å unngå alle lysene.
Barn har sensitive og mer følsomme luftveier enn voksne uansett om de har astma, allergi eller andre sjukdommer som gir dem sensitive luftveier. Barn som vokser har en hurtigere pust enn det voksne har og trekker inn mer luft hyppigere enn voksne. Både barn og voksne med luftveisproblemer og allergier har en bedre helse om man unngår å brenne levende lys.

Lysene i videoen herover kjøpte jeg på Jernia, de går på to AA batterier og de tennes med en fjernkontroll. Du eller barnen kan altså sitte trygt i sofan og tenne lysene på avstand, og de  er helt parfymefrie og sotfrie, og du kan være trygg på at det ikke begynner å brenne i duker og gardiner.

God luft inne.

Clean air and cozy with candles

If you have sensitive airways it is rather often you have to avoid things in life, but in recent time it have been produced battery-powered candles in many different kinds. Therefor you can have that cozy time and fresh air at the same time.

When you burn regular candles og scented candles many health and environmental hazardous chemicals are delivered to the air for example chromium, musk xylene, carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) heavy metals, nanoparticles, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) sodium o potassium salts and more. Candles made of paraffin produce even more particles than pure stearin candles. In a laboratory study with blue-colored paraffin candles is elevated levels of metals such as copper, cobalt, lead and zinc and more measured in the air.

When burning candles a portion of the stearic burn incompletely and form soot particles in the air. Some (but not exclusively these) of the candles emitting harmful substances to indoor air are stearin candles, paraffin candles, scented candles, glimmer candles, gel candles, candles with printed decoration, soya candles, bee wax or palm candles and such. Everything is burnt do emit substances into the air.

“If you burn candles for two hours a day, they account for almost two thirds of the total indoor pollution.” Videnskap.dk

Candles can provide the same indoor air pollution that moderate smoking indoors and at least equivalent contribution one can get from outdoor air pollution. It is therefore important to avoid burning candles indoors. Every time you blow out a light, released 350,000 soot particles – it is as much as from a cigarette! When candle burning, part of stearin burn incompletely. This partially combusted carbonaceous material will form soot particles in the air. These particles consist of a complex mixture of substances, from clean coal to complex organic compounds. More candles in a room with poor ventilation can cause respiratory irritation, asthma symptoms, dizziness and headache. While stearin is a renewable raw material, paraffin is a fossil raw materials that emit harmful greenhouse gases and emit more soot particles. Paraffin is also more flammable. Studies show that we, if we had not used paraffin candles, would have reduced greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to removing 21,000 cars from the roads. Scented candles are worst fumes for asthma and allergy sufferers, they spread substances to air that are allergenic, irritating to the airways and trigger asthma attacks. These candles smell good but do not do your body any service. A survey by the University of Copenhagen, based on 78 people in 58 homes in Copenhagen shows that the use of burning candles can be dangerous: The researchers observed reduced lung function and signs of inflammation in the lungs of people in homes where there are many particles of candlelight. According to consultant Kåre Refvem, who specializes in lung diseases and internal medicine, there is no doubt that the soot particles they inhale from candlelight affects the lungs. There are some people who react to such soot particles, there is a reaction when exposed to polluted air: The mucus membranes becomes irritated, forming more mucus and there be an inflammatory process in the bronchi. In practice, over time, the frequent use of candles and other candles including aggravate a condition of COPD or asthma, and some remain even home from social events, to avoid all the lights.

Children are sensitive and got more sensitive airways than adults whether they have asthma, allergies or other diseases that give them sensitive airways or not. Children who grow have a faster breathing than adults have and draws in more air more frequently than adults. Both children and adults with respiratory problems and allergies have a better health if you avoid burning candles.

The lights in the video in this blog post I bought at Jernia store, they run on two AA batteries and they can be lid using a remote control. You or your child (if you have children) can therefore sit comfy and safely in sofa and light the lights from a distance and they are completely fragrance-free and soot free, and you can be assured that it does not begin to burn in tablecloths and curtains.

Fresh air indoors.

Tested: Natural makeup remover

Makeup remover

When you finally have found this fragrance free waterproof mascara you will probably need to find a fragrance free makeup remover. I have been thinking for a while and since fatty skin care products make even waterproof mascara running I thought maybe something from the kitchen will work instead of those chemical filled products you find in the store.

Olive oil

Olive oil is fatty, greasy and also good for your skin. It do not hold much that is bad for you and it is fragrance free. It is also a good mascara remover.

image

Do like this:

Put a little ecological olive oil on a cotton pad and wipe your eye lids and lashes clean.

image

Wash with a mild fragrance free soap and water after. You get clean and you lotion your skin at the same time.

Just keep your eyes locked when wiping with the olive oil.

Only small minus is that it leaves you with a little white looking shine for a hour or two. But if you put it on some time before you go out that should not be a problem.

Tested: Jane Iredale Lash Conditioner – Whitelisted

I talked with Fedora Minerals Makeup representative about their mascara I find a little thin when adding it to the lashes. They suggested I should use a lash conditioner the first layer, and then add mascara, this will thicken the lashes and make them appear better they said. And during this talk on Facebook they were kind enough to promise to send me one for free so I could try it. Really nice of them. :-)

By accident they sent me Jane Iredale instead of Fedora. Same manufacturer. This little accident gave me something new to write about. :-)

A lash conditioner is like a primer you add to the lashes before adding mascara. It is supposed to protect the lashes and thicken and stiffen them before adding mascara. It make the first layer of mascara better visible faster. One can also wear it as a care product at night for conditioning the lashes while sleeping, Fedora Minerals told me.

It came by post

I was at the pharmacy to buy Decubal Intensive Cream and by mistake I took Decubal Body Cream from the shelf, the tubes look so much alike.

It is fragrance free and no hormone disrupting chemicals added. It is scent free. Nice to the skin too.

This is a pure inhale test of the products. I test the products on my self. This is a real life asthma product suitability test done at home in real life settings. I am my own guinea pig. Whitelisted products should be safe for you to use, while blacklisted are not safe. But as with all sensitivities some are more sensitive than others, always try new products with care. Make the first time trying it gently, if you got a skin condition try it on a small area, and washing agents on a hidden area or a cloth you can afford to waste.

My lungs are very picky when it comes to hygiene products, beauty products, hair products, washing and cleaning products and so on. Products not meeting the standards of no asthma reaction are blacklisted.

Please, buy such items whitelisted as gifts for friends and family. They are designed and made for a better personal health and are more environmentally beneficial than the fragranced ones. Use them yourself, care about your fellow-man. Do not make other people sick with your fragrance presence.

Tested: Coop Änglamark deodorant rollon – Whitelisted

Many believe that to stay fresh one must use fragrance, but fragrance itself have absolutely no antispirant ability or function. Fragrance only hold a lot of extra unnecessary health and environment damaging chemicals, because fragrance my friend is nothing but chemicals. But there are options more environment and healt beneficial.

I try products, and today I tried Coop Änglamark deodorant rollon. It is fragrance free. It do have preservatives but no parabens.

It is rich when adding it. You do not need to make many rolls. The company recommends that you let it dry before you put clothes on.

Tested: La Roche Posay Makeup – Whitelisted

I have started trying La Roche Posay fragrance free makeup. It is nice and plenty to choose from. It is also possible to mix with Fedora Makeup also fragrance free.

Today I bought

Concealer
This is brush concealer. You brush the concealer to the face and then smudge it with your fingers or a blending brush. It comes in 4-5 colors and even yellow and green to cover spots, red skin, and dark and blue areas.

image

Lipstick
It got a moisturizer coor. It is a rich color, and I would suggest to use a lipstick brush to applicate it. Many colors to choose from.

image

Mascara
A while back I tried La Roche-Posay Respectissime perfume free mascara. It works good. I got no sore eyes, and no asthma problems from it. Only bommer is it runs when you get warm or you wear a fat face cream. This one went ok.

wpid-IMAG1048.jpg

In Norway you find La Roche Posay makeup at the pharmacy (Vitus Apotek) If you are somewhere else than Norway write to La Roche Posay and ask them to introduce it where you live.

However a German friend told me La Roche Posay makeup did not make it very well in a Eco test in www.oekotest.de Things like this is up to you to take in consideration.

According to politiken.dk La Roche Posay uses hormone disrupting Chemicals in their Products.

Car care with steam cleaning

(Scroll down for English)

Rengjør bilen med damp

Bra for miljøet og bra for luften vi puster. Kepler AS på Sem har begynt å bruke nye teknikker for å vaske biler. Kjemiske produkter koster nesten ti ganger mer i måneden enn steam, altså damp med høyt trykk. Arbeidet går raskt og resultatet blir bedre. I stedet for tradisjonell såpe og vann. Mindre vann og ingen såpe. I andre land er det mer vanlig å bruke denne metoden. Hoteller, næringsmiddelindustrien og helseintitusjoner bruker dette. Det blir faktisk renere enn med såpe. Omtrent fire liter vann per bil. Det kommer ut med 160°C, så den tar bakteriene også. Vanligvis bruker vi syre for å rense felg. Her steamer vi og tørker rent med en klut. Det blir helt rent nesten umiddelbart. Til rengjøring av en bil bruker man vanligvis 1,5 liter med midler som avfetting, felgrens (syre), alkaliske såper og tjærefjerner ved polering. Så er det et tonn med vann på høytrykk. Det er ikke miljøvennlig. – Målet er å kjøre helt økologisk, uten bruk av kjemi. Steameren er skånsom mot lakk, ideell til krinker og kroker, som i dørkarmene og i motorrommet. Pass på å følge opp med mikrofiberklutt rett etter steameren, så får du et rent og tørt resultat. Det fungerer også til motorvask, og fordi man bruker så lite vann så blir det mindre problemer med motorene. Man kan rengjøre alt, til og med interiør og seter.

Maskinen koster 75.000 kroner, men så spares det kjemi for 10.000 kroner i måneden.

Clean the car with steam

Good for the environment and good for the air we breathe. Kepler AS Sem have started using new techniques for washing cars. Chemical products costing almost ten times more a month than steam, ie steam at high pressure. The work goes quickly and the result is better. Instead of traditional soap and water. Less water and no soap. In other countries it is more common to use this method. Hotels, food industry and helseintitusjoner use this. It is actually cleaner than soap. Approximately four liters of water per car. It comes out at 160 ° C, so it takes the bacteria too. Typically we use acid to clean rim. Here we steamer and wipe clean with a cloth. There is absolutely clean almost immediately. To clean a car uses 1.5 liters normally with means degreasing, wheel cleaner (acid), alkaline soaps and tar remover for polishing. Then there’s a ton of water pressure. It is not environmentally friendly. – The goal is to run completely organic, without the use of chemicals. Steam heater is gentle on paint, ideal for nooks and crannies, which doorframes and the engine compartment. Be sure to follow up with mikrofiberklutt right after steam heater, so you get a clean and dry result. It also works to engine wash, and because it uses so little water so there is less problems with the engines. You can clean everything, even the interior and seats.

The machine costs 75,000 NOK, but then saved the chemistry of 10,000 NOK a month.

Tested: Cosmica fragrance free lotion – Whitelisted

It get a whitelist with a caution. The caution is not about asthma, but Methylparaben and Propylparaben. Paraben imitates the female hormon and is a suspected cause of cancer, and Methylparaben is also found hindering medicine against breast cancer from having full effect.

Because of the paraben I do not put a recommendation on it, but in the aspect of asthma it is scent free.

Tested: Fedora makeup – Whitelisted

Fedora is made from natural materials, it is scent free. I will show you some of the products available and maybe add more later as I buy them.

image

Here is all you need.

image

wpid-IMAG2152.jpg

With Fedora you get a nice little beauty box with a good mirror inside. It is very good. But I would like og the powder and rouge pieces to be bigger, and that there were bigger boxes that could hold three rouge, three all powder only, one box for 3 blush only.

In today’s great boxes 1 powder, 1 blush and 3 eye shadows fit in the box and is held there by magnets. (Lip stick is from La Roche Posay also perfume free with a balm function.)

This is what I chose, there are many more colors to choose.

Mascara
Water resistant Lengthening Mascara

This mascara got a wonderful brush! Wow! Perfect for lashes. :-) This mascara however give away rather little mascara to the brush and I feel it takes too long building the layers on eye lashes. But when finished resault is ok. It do not run much either. But as it the mascara is made today I think it is best used on the eyebrows. It is a remarkable good eyebrow mascara. It looks all natural! I wish they could market this mascara as a eyebrow mascara, and make another richer one with same brush for lashes as well. That would have been best. Cool they have choosen a tube so one can press the very last out of it. :-)

image

image

A little update 24 April 2013: I got a tip from Fedora to use a Lash Conditioner under the mascara, this should make it easier to apply, they said. They where kind enough to send me a Lash Conditioner from Jane Iredale for free to try it. And it worked.

image

image

It is important to notice that water resistant is not the same as waterproof. Water resistant mean it resist water to a degree.

Lipstick

Pretty Pink

image

In Norway you find Fedora make-up at the pharmacy. If they do not have it available, do ask them to order for it and to sell it.

Only product from Fedora I would put on the blacklist is Fedora Lipgloss and Fedora Facial Moisture Spray. That is a pitty since the rest of the products hold such a high standard.

You should know that fragrance and colored fabric softener is one of the worst products you can use, it holds a lot of bad chemicals that is carcinogenic, irritate lungs and skin, make asthma worsen, is bad for the environment, water, not biodegradable, and so on.

Tested: Storfix Perfume free Professional Cleaning – Whitelisted

(Scroll down for English)

Jeg har hatt store problemer på jobben på grunn av det rengjøringsmiddel som er blitt brukt der, men dette vil endre seg. I dag fikk jeg den største gaven jeg har fått på lenge. Sjefen min har lyttet til mine behov og kjøpte en duftfri rengjøringsmiddel. Og det er perfekt! Jeg føler ikke noe i lungene mine, ikke den minste reaksjon! Jeg er så gla at jeg sprudler! La meg presentere deg for

Den vil bli brukt til å rengjøre kontorer, toaletter, kjøkken og spiserom, alle lokaler i bedriften, og alle bussene, så fra nå av vil det være parfymefrie busser! En gode ikke bare for meg, men for alle som er allergiske og sensitive!

Du bruker Storfix Parfymefri for gulv, tak, vegger og alle andre flater, inkludert vinduer.

Nå er det ingen unnskyldning for ikke å ta vare på sensitive, uansett hvor og når! Husk at den som er astmatisk, lungesjuk, allergisk, sensitiv o.l.  mot parfyme o.l. kjemikalier i luften unngår å besøke dine kontorer og forretning, og det er en kunde tapt!

Du slår også et slag for miljøet, da Storfix Parfymefri er både fri for unødvendige  kjemikalier i parfymer, og fri for fargekjemikalier. Ingen av disse gjør noen rengjøringsarbeide. Tensidene i rengjøringsmedelet er biologisk nedbrytbare.

You use Storfix Perfume free for floors, walls, and all other surfaces, icluding , glass, mirrors and windows.

It comes in cans of 3 x 5 liters.

It is aimed to professional cleaning, but you can also buy it for home use.

Now there are NO excuse for not caring for the sensitive regardless where and when! Remember that a allergic, asthmatic or other lung sick person, sensitive as avoid visiting  your offices or buisness if they get sick from entering there, and that is a customer lost!

You also do something good for the environment in all, not only the air quality since Storfix is both free of chemicals in perfumes and free of color chemicals. Surfactants in the Storfix are biodegradable.

About the test
This is a pure inhale test of the products. I test the products on my self. This is a real life asthma product suitability test done at home in real life settings. I am my own guinea pig. Whitelisted products should be safe for you to use. But as with all sensitivities some are more sensitive than others, always try new products with care. Make the first time trying it gently, if you got a skin condition try it on a small area, and washing agents on a hidden area or a cloth you can afford to waste.

My lungs are very picky when it comes to hygiene products, beauty products, hair products, washing and cleaning products and so on. Products not meeting the standards of no asthma reaction are blacklisted.

Please, buy such items whitelisted as gifts for friends and family. They are designed and made for a better personal health and are more environmentally beneficial than the fragrances ones. Use them yourself, care about your fellow-man. Do not make other people sick with your fragrance presence.

I was not paid to try this product out.

If you try this product your self, please leave a comment in the commentary field below.

Thank you
