I have several problems. I am 52 and have food intolerances, and in recent months have started to react to chemicals (aftershave, perfume, bleach, candles, paint, varnish, etc). These all cause unpleasant effects, mainly to my nose, which feels as if it has ice packed inside it, and the offending substances smell totally different to what they should.
After your Toxic Toiletries article (WDDTY vol 10 no 7), I eagerly sent off for information from several companies that you recommended. This left me disappointed and in a state of utter confusion.
The Green People catalogue arrived, and I am very pleased to find that they do not use chemicals at all in their products. Neal's Yard admits to using small amounts of methylparaben in their products. Neways uses methylparaben and propylparaben. This shows just how careful you have to be.

We are preparing a guide to natural products which will list all ingredients, so please keep on the look out for our announcement.
