Protect Your Health
The air freshener industry uses over 3,000 synthetic chemicals as ingredients in the
air fresheners you use everyday.
Some of the most commonly used ingredients are:
Phthalates known as DEP and DBP
What These Chemicals Can Do To You
Formaldehyde: causes irritation of the eyes and mucous membranes; inhalation may cause headaches, a burning sensation in
the throat, and difficulty breathing, as well as triggering or aggravating asthma symptoms.
Phthalates: cause damage to the liver, kidneys, lungs, and developing testes.
Petroleum Distillates: cause irritation of eyes, nose, throat; dizziness, drowsiness; headache; nausea; dry cracked skin;
chemical pneumonitis (from aspiration of liquid).
Para dichlorobenzene (also called 1,4-Dichlorobenzene, p-DCB, etc.): causes dizziness, headaches, and liver problems.
Propellants (usually Butane, Isobutene or Propane): inhaling butane can cause drowsiness, narcosis, asphyxia, cardiac
arrhythmia and frostbite, which can result in instant death from asphyxiation, acute toxicity and ventricular fibrillation.
Most of these ingredients have been shown to cause cancer in humans.
Protect Your Family
Research shows that air fresheners are linked to many health problems:
• 32% more babies suffer diarrhea in homes where air fresheners are used every day, compared with
homes where they are used once a week or less, and they have significantly more earaches in
these homes as well.
• Air fresheners also affect mothers - - those who use them daily suffer nearly 10% more headaches.
• Women who live in homes with daily air freshener use have a 26% increased risk of depression.
• Homes where air fresheners are used regularly
also have a higher rate of occupants inflicted with
asthma, allergies, and cancers.
Protect Your Environment
Currently 75% of American households turn to air fresheners when they
encounter odors in their homes.
Most air fresheners last 30 days, but the containers they come in can last
1000’s of years.
In America alone, this produces over 4 billion used/empty air freshener
containers in our landfills per year.
