Fragrance Oils vs Essential Oils in Products

The main issue with synthetic fragrances is the mystery behind what exactly they are. The synthetic fragrances used in cosmetics can have as many as 200 ingredients. There is no way to know what the chemicals are, since on the label it will simply read “fragrance.” Some problems caused by these chemicals include headaches, dizziness, rash, hyperpigmentation, violent coughing, vomiting, skin irritation, etc.

Although these fragrances are usually only added in very small amounts, when used in personal care products, they are applied directly to the consumer’s skin.

“Fragrance is considered a trade secret, so companies don’t have to tell us what’s in it – often dozens or even hundreds of synthetic chemical compounds. Almost half the products in Skin Deep contain the generic term “fragrance,” from shampoos and deodorants to lotions and shaving creams. Even “unscented” products may contain masking fragrances, which are chemicals used to cover up the odor of other chemicals.” (www.safecosmetics.org).

Choose personal care items that are scented using pure extracts and essential oils like all of the ForeveGreen House & Home products as well as a complete line of over 100 pure and blended TRUessence essential oils.
