Yes, they are. Some contain formaldehyde and cause respiritory problems in those with asthma or allergies. Most all contain chemicals that are not good for you. Also scented candles can have the same effect. They make me cough and the longer I am exposed, the worse the cough gets.

    I should bring a present to my mother in law. I'm thinking to buy her a perfume. How can i chose a fragrance for someone else?

    A good rule of thumb is to stay with a classic fragrance. A fragrance that has been on the market for decades is not as risky as new fragrances on the market. The age of the recipient can also influence your choice. If you are purchasing for a women of college age, Potion, Eternal, or Desire may be appropriate. If you are purchasing for a more mature woman, Amber, Opoponax, or Innocence may be a good choice. Lighter floral fragrances are acceptable to almost everyone. Heavier perfumes with oriental notes are more risky. To guarantee the correct fragrance, give a gift certificate and sample the fragrances at a later time.

    How can I make my perfume last longer on my skin?

    Make sure you moisturize your skin prior to application of fragrance(preferebly same brand moisturizer) and your skin will not absorb oils from the fragrance, therefore, it will last longer.

    What's in cosmetics?

    Fragrances and preservatives are the main ingredients in cosmetics. Fragrances are the most common cause of skin problems. More than 5,000 different kinds are used in products. Products marked "fragrance-free" or "without perfume" means that no fragrances have been added to make the product smell good.

    Preservatives in cosmetics are the second most common cause of skin problems. They prevent bacteria and fungus from growing in the product and protect products from damage caused by air or light. But preservatives can also cause the skin to become irritated and infected. Some examples of preservatives are:

    •imidazolidinyl urea
    •DMDM hydantoin
    •formaldehydeThe ingredients below cannot be used, or their use is limited, in cosmetics. They may cause cancer or other serious health problems.

    •mercury compounds
    •vinyl chloride
    •halogenated salicyanilides
    •zirconium complexes in aerosol sprays
    •methylene chloride
    •chlorofluorocarbon propellants

    Burnt electronic smell even hours after tv turned off

    Its behavior is not normal. Have it repaired. Fumes are hazardous to your health especially to the little one's health. Think of a fire hazard too. As the adage says :No fumes without fire.

    Hope you decide to be rid of the bomb or have it repaired.
