Yes. I no longer use them. In the 80's I was in and out of hospital while tests were being run to address my many symptoms. After 3 months they discovered the culprit was an accumulation of chemicals in my system/tissues. I am one of the 12% of the population that has chemical sensitivity. Normally the body rids itself of these toxic chemicals within 3 days of exposure. In my case this doesn't happen and starts to build up. These chemicals are in almost every product in one's household. Many people with strange symptoms or general feeling of being unwell could have this and don't realize it. The common consensus is it could affect more than 12% of the population. Chemicals are also in perfumes and even more in cologne.
