How can we claim our products to be "fragrance-free" when nearly everything from Herbaria is unquestionably scented? "Fragrance-free" means we never put synthetic fragrance oils in any of our products.
Check the ingredients in your store-bought soap and skincare products. Most likely, you’ll see the word “fragrance.”
That single word can stand for hundreds of potentially harmful chemicals. "Fragrance" is a catch-all word that conceals the actual ingredients. According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, “fragrance” is the number one skin irritant and listed among the top five allergens.
Even products labeled "scent-free" can use ingredients that mask smells.
Contrast those artificial fragrances with our natural essential oils. Essential oils are made from plants, usually steam distilled, some cold-pressed, from lavender, peppermint, patchouli, and other safe, aromatherapeutic herbs. Essential oils are more costly than fragrance oils, but they have been used, tested, and valued for many years.
Often, customers tell us that their skin couldn’t tolerate scented soaps, yet they had no adverse reaction to any of our varieties.
Our sense of smell is a wonderful gift. Enjoy it.
