RACINE, Wis., March 24, 2017 – “SC Johnson applauds the Expert Panel for Fragrance Safety, an independent panel of 3rd party fragrance industry science experts, for taking an important step in advancing fragrance industry’s transparency with the launch of their new public website. The comprehensive website,, gives industry members and stakeholders, including consumers, full visibility into expert opinions and safety evaluations. It shares important policies and guidelines governing fragrance ingredients, includes minutes of meetings, and offers insights into the scientific research. As a member of the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials, Inc.
