    Where does your information on the ingredients come from? These two ingredients aren’t listed on any of the ingredient lists that have been released. I’d like to see the actual testing before jumping on the bandwagon.

    I love that SGK is getting some negative publicity…but also don’t forget that the Susan G. Komen Foundation FUNDS animal testing in their work to find a cure. This is not necessary, there are plenty of organizations doing the same work without hurting animals in the process. See for yourself @ http://humaneseal.org/charities/breastcancer_month.cfm

    I agree that Cara is raising a very good point – if the slogan of this campaign is “think before you pink” than the evidence presented against G.Komen and the like should be a lot more substantial than what G.Komen herself has. We could fight forever about whether the perfume has these ingredients or not depending on which lab found what, but what WOULD make one side believable compared to the other is an approved publication in the scientific journal, where on can look at the methods used and results obtained at least in a somewhat scientifically rigorous way. True that not all of us are scientist, but if you’re claiming that these findings come from the laboratory, there needs to be a backup. True, I have not done a pub med search on your evidence. However, the link that I was directed to in the reply to the above challenge from Cara was in no way helpful in terms of giving me more information about your evidence.
