Synthetic Fragrance is my personal favorite (by favorite I mean most despised) bad guy ingredient. The scary truth? The US doesn't require that companies disclose the ingredients used to create a fragrance and just lets them get away with putting "fragrance" on the ingredient label.
Fragrance is a catch-all term that can simply mean a big cocktail of toxic chemicals combined to create a single scent. The scariest part is many of those chemicals have never been tested for safety. Fragrance is known to cause allergies, skin and eye irritation, migraines, dizziness and trigger severe reactions in those that are chemically sensitive.
The good news is that I have a couple of fantastic natural fragrance options for you. In this video, I was lucky to team up with the creator of the natural perfume company Call Of The Vialed who shed some very interesting light on the dirty secrets behind synthetic fragrance and animal testing. Call of the Vialed perfumes are free of any synthetic ingredients and actually disclose far more on their ingredient labels than many other natural perfume company including several components of the essential oils and absolutes that are used in the blends, rather than just saying "essential oil blend" or "C02 Absolutes". I really admire their willingness for full transparency.
