Thank you for your kind and generous offer to post my Comment as an
I am extremely sensitive to scent, and get headaches and/or nausea if
I am subjected to strong scent for any length of time. I use Dial
liquid antibacterial soap (no scent) and my husband uses White Dial
antibacterial bars of soap (a very slight scent, but one that doesn't
bother me at all).
We both use Sure Clear Dry (stick, not gel) Unscented, which has no
scent that I can detect, and which is made by Proctor & Gamble.
"Gordon & Jacki's Place" has published a helpful excerpt of FDA (U.S.
Food & Drug Administration) information on "unscented" and
"fragrance-free" products here:
"The terms "fragrance free" and "unscented" are presently used by the
cosmetic industry virtually without restriction, since the expressions
have no legal definitions...
In most cases, consumers may be able to purchase "unscented" or
"fragrance free" cosmetic products by examining the label to confirm
the absence of the word "fragrance" in the list of ingredients."
Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada has published a
list of "Scent-Free" products here:

I hope that you find this information helpful, and wish you the best
in avoiding headache- and allergy reaction-producing scents!
