    This expert blog by Christopher Gavigan, CEO / Author of Healthy Child Healthy World contains information from a new perfume study by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics . After reading this, you may think more about what you spray or rub onto your skin. Do you know what it is? Could it have harmful effects? Could it even affect your allergies?

    Best Wishes!
