Don't use your "Instinct"

According to a study done by Greenpeace* on the potentially harmful contents of certain perfumes, the spray deodorant Instinct by David Beckham apparently contains high levels of the substance DEHP. A substance that within the EU is forbidden to use in cosmetic products due to the risk of negatively affecting fertility and damaging the testicles...

...I think it's fair to say that "Becks" probably doesn't use his own products.


* As stated in an article in the Swedish newspaper Expressen 060620

haha :) Bienvenido el mostro! Pero existen perfumes que no han sustancias peligrosas, no?

Tengo una pregunta. Por que has escrito en español? Estoy solo "curious" :)

Gracias para los saludos, y también para ti saludos de Suecia!

I agree with whatever's being said above!

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira said...

lol boo!, then you just agreed with the fact that a) el mostro doesn't use perfumes because of the reasons stated in the article, and b) that there are perfumes that are void of dangerous substances... :)

It is like having Beck's kick you in the balls rather than kick the ball. Bend it like Beckham? More like, bent by Beckam.

Well that is why Greenpeace is testing it. The contents are forbidden to be used in such products, but those regulations aren't always followed it seems. There has also been a debate wether or not it contains enough of the dangerous substance to actually cause damage.

the damage is done. one could argue that beckham lacks the testicles.. but then the damage is already done and the blood line has continued..
