Bath and Body Works Health warning Spark debate in Viral TikTok

A Bath and Body Works health warning against air freshener refills has sparked a heated debate on TikTok. The video calling attention to the warning has grown to more than 1 million views when users dropped it in the comments.

In the post, @karlyalane used the trend “What’s going on?” sound to emphasize her shock. The caption reads “When bath & body care products still work after they release THIS.”

Then the video cuts into a data document that is safe for Bath and Body Works apple winter fragrance. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires chemical manufacturers to disclose this information.

The safety board warned of the risk of skin irritation, infertility, and organ damage — and TikTokers were outraged.

“This is why I have switched to all natural products! instead use essential oils or scented candles and wall plugs,” said user @alliew26.

“Haven’t used it in years,” added @authentently_rachel. “I tell people not to buy it‼️ Toxic is an overstatement.”

But other TikTok users weighed in saying that it was common practice to publish warnings for scented products and that Bath and Body Works was being unfairly removed.

“Do some research… these are literally every room spray, candle and body spray in the world,” commented @ljones008.

In a statement to the Daily Dot, a spokesperson for Bath & Body Works said, “The Safety Data Sheet (SDS), like the one you’re refering to from TikTok, is a standardized method for fragrance at home.

“The intended audience of these papers are companies and emergency personnel who need to know how to handle, store or dispose of large quantities of chemicals in industrial facilities.”

The Daily Dot has also reached out to @karlyalane via TikTok comment.
