FRAGRANCE: skin irritation/allergies/damage, acute aquatic toxicity, respiratory effects, biodegradation; Disclosure Concern: non-specific ingredient 

SODIUM DODECYLBENZENESULFONATE: chronic and acute aquatic toxicity, developmental/endocrine/reproductive effects, skin irritation/allergies/damage, damage to vision.
