This month Mid Brain reports on new cosmetic science stories while the Left and Right Brains take time off to work on the new Beauty Brains book.

Mid Brain reports:

The International Fragrance Association (IFRA) has decided to limit how much jasmine is allowed in perfumes and fragrances for beauty products. While critics say this could drastically change the scent of some of the world’s most famous perfumes, the organization is concerned about the high numbers of products that cause rashes and other skin reactions because of jasmine.

I think this is a good example of how the cosmetic industry polices itself. Putting safety first is an important decision and should be applauded.
