Safer Scents: Why Fragrance Isn’t Always a Bad Actor

According to the Environmental Working Group, most scents in perfumes and colognes are produced from 3,100 stock chemical ingredients. Since our skin absorbs nearly 60 percent of what we put onto it, the hidden chemicals in perfumes can negatively impact our health so it is important to be informed about the fragrance products you choose to use. 

However, associating fragrance alone with toxicity is inaccurate. The reality is, fragrance is a broad term for anything that has a scent. Fragrance alone isn't always a bad actor. It's the harmful ingredients that are sometimes added to fragrances that are bad.  Additional ingredients may include preservatives, allergens, phthalates, petroleum, and animal by-products. Many of the popular perfumes and colognes on the market today contain these harmful ingredients which is why we decided to make our own Scentient Being® fragrance oil blends.

It’s always important to keep things in perspective given the massive amount of information out there on ingredient safety, and understand that even “fragrance-free” products may not guarantee that a product is truly safe. Fragrance-free products can still contain harmful chemicals that irritate your skin, trigger allergies, or cause other health issues.

We believe it’s all about making safer choices. Swapping out your high end perfumes with a safer alternative like phthalate free fragrance oils is a great place to start.

At Start Living Natural, we do not use these harmful ingredients in our products and carefully formulate our Scentient Being® fragrance oil blends to keep you in zen/no worry mode. Our oil blends are skin safe, alcohol free, phthalate free and paraben free. We use premium fragrance oils sourced from around the globe along with golden jojoba oil which naturally contains vitamin E, has anti-inflammatory properties, and nourishes, moisturizes, and protects skin.

Scentient Being® fragrance oil blends come in 10 perfectly blended scents that will awaken your senses.
