The Y is encouraging a fragrance-free environment in its facilities

YMCAs of Québec - January 08 2018

Providing a healthy and welcoming environment is at the heart of our mission at the Y. That’s why we are committed to ensuring the comfort of all by encouraging a fragrance-free environment in our facilities.

Did you know? The chemicals used in scented products can make some people sick, especially those with fragrance sensitivities, asthma, allergies and other medical conditions.  For some people, scented products such as hair spray, perfume and deodorant can trigger reactions such as respiratory distress and headaches.

Help us keep the air we share healthy and fragrance-free. Show your consideration by avoiding perfume, cologne, aftershave and other fragranced products. Choose to use unscented personal care products whenever possible as a sign of your support.
