Mapping of perfume in toys and children's articles

13-03-2006

In the project, a mapping of the Danish market for toys and children's articles with fragrances marketed to children at age 0-10 years has been carried out. The articles are analysed for content of chemical substances especially sensitizing perfumes. The objective of the project was to create an overview of how widespread the use of perfume and fragrances in toys, babies' articles and other products for children is, and on the basis of analyses and test results to assess the health problems the substances can cause to children. Quantitative and qualitative analyses were made on selected articles for specified chemicals with focus on sensitizing perfumes and organic substances.
