Do you or someone you know suffer from
Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS)?
Quality of health for people with MCS deteriorates when they are exposed to chemicals, fumes and fragrances.
Fragrance Free Friends (FFF) began in 2014 as a group of people in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada impaired by Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) whose vision is ‘Living cleaner, healthier lives by minimizing contact with harmful chemicals and off-gassing fumes.’
SCENTED products often contain TOXIC ingredients that impair public health, from the unborn to the elderly, especially those with chemical sensitivities, allergies, asthma and patients recovering from cancer treatment.
Please check the ingredients list on your personal care, laundry and cleaning products; avoid using any that list "perfume, parfum, scent or fragrance". See Triggers.
Our purpose is to...
SHARE our experiences and resources.
EDUCATE ourselves and the public to become more AIR AWARE.
CARE for one another, to make change in a positive, loving and effective way.
ADVOCATE for those who become ill from the toxic effects of chemicals and fumes.
CREATE a safe, responsible and inclusive world... starting here, starting today.
