Lilial Classified As Toxic

Lilial (BMHCA) Classified as Toxic: May 19th, 2020 and Lindsay Lucas Products

On May 19th, 2020, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) added Lilial (also known as Butylphenyl methylpropional or BMHCA) to its list of substances of very high concern (SVHC). Lilial is a synthetic fragrance ingredient commonly used in cosmetics and personal care products.

Lilial has been added to the SVHC list because it has been identified as a substance that may cause reproductive toxicity, specifically harming fertility in men. Although it is not currently banned or restricted, its classification as a toxic substance has caused concern among manufacturers and consumers alike.

At Lindsay Lucas Candles, we want to reassure our customers that none of our products contain Lilial (BMHCA). We take the safety and well-being of our customers seriously, which is why we never use any ingredients that have been classified as toxic.

We understand that many people are concerned about the chemicals and ingredients in the products they use, which is why we prioritize safety and transparency. We believe in using only high-quality and safe fragrances in our candles, diffusers, and other products.

While Lilial is not currently banned, its classification as a toxic substance should serve as a reminder that we should all be aware of the ingredients in the products we use. This information emphasizes the importance of understanding the ingredients in the products we use and the potential effects they may have on our health and the environment.

Fragrances that did contain Lilial have ben reformulated.

In Conclusion:

Lilial (BMHCA) has been added to the SVHC list due to its potential for reproductive toxicity, leading to concern among manufacturers and consumers. At Lindsay Lucas Candles, we want to reassure our customers that none of our products contain Lilial. We are committed to using only safe and high-quality ingredients in our candles and diffusers.
