1-26. “Microcapsule getting popular” （日本語）
I have received many comments like, “I’m having trouble with incense damage myself, too!” after releasing my last column.
I learned again that many people feel the same way every day.
Especially at this season of the year, we can smell such strong scent of sweaty clothes due to the humidity and high temperature, and it’s annoying to other people while we don’t even notice it.
Also, in dense areas, the various scents mix together and make you feel sick, even if you’re wearing a mask, which we’ve also had some comments.
Even if the scent is pleasant to you, others may find it unpleasant, and some people get sick.
From the point of view, solutions to the fragrance problem does not seem easy…
By the way, how do the people on the side of the manufacturers of “artificial fragrances” understand this social problem?
Probably because manufacturers are seeing an increase in sales of the long-lasting fragrance product “microcapsules”, and they keep upgrading.
So then what happens if we don’t use it or buy it in this situation?
Manufacturers won’t make anything that doesn’t sell, so I think this nasty social phenomenon will be greatly reduced.
Our daily life products are full of various chemicals, including artificial fragrances.
However, with a little ingenuity, we can keep the danger away.
For example, when I want to enjoy a scent, I choose to use 100% natural ingredients.
I’m trying to examine ingredients of the things around me and use the safest products as mush as possible.
Not only for myself, but also to protect my precious family.
Don’t let the commercials fool you, but make smart choices.
The Special Committee on Consumer Affairs of The House of Representatives of Japan, Mr. Akihiro Hatsuka, about the issue of “Fragrance pollution”
Most of the daily products are not labeled for the fregrance pollution for consumers to make a better choice.
Make a smart choice by ourselves.
