I will say, I'm not jazzed on that. All though, I have yet to actually smell the concealer (so it's not giving off a powerful scent).
I hate that "fragrance" is just some random ingredient that always seems to end up in cosmetics for no apparent reason BUT I sort of feel like I've been living my life this long surrounded by "toxic" things and it hasn't killed me.... Yet.
But it does a great job at concealing, I will say that. So for me personally I look the other way so that I can cover up a blemish or two and feel confident in my skin. I hope you find a concealer that's just as good but without the mystery ingredients.
I think I know which site you're talking about and honestly, that site doesn't really have a good scientific background based it's claims upon. First, ANY ingredient (including mineral powders that are so-called natural) can cause contact dermatitis or a true allergic reaction. In fact, natural ingredients are often the culprits because they're often more concentrated and purer, which means they can be stronger. Obviously, it's your choice to buy or not buy a product based on any review, but I just wanted to point out that a fragrance in a product isn't a deal breaker in terms of safety, efficacy or product making responsibility. Also, to further answer your question from a technical side, the fragrance in this isn't listed as a common irritant in any EPA or chemical watchdog site except the one you saw it on.
