Today's science tells us there's reason for concern about the health impacts of synthetic fragrances like the ones uncovered by WVE's investigation
If you want to make an informed choice about products like air fresheners for your home, you need to read everything on the label, don't you? You can take action now
via WVE to ask SC Johnson to be open about what synthetic fragrances it's using.
