Fragrance is such a personal thing. It’s something that can make a huge impact. I’m sure you can remember specific smells from specific places, moods or times in your life. It invokes memories that can transport you into the past. It brings in memories of spring, of old notebooks, of grandma’s warm, eau de Parfum-laced enveloping hug. Is it any wonder that perfume is such a big deal?

Perfumes and Toxins 

When switching to natural, non toxic personal care products, perfume usually gets forgotten. We pay loads of attention to our shampoos, shower gels, toothpaste, deodorant, and beauty products. But we forgot about perfumes. Are perfumes toxic? 

Very much so. Perfumes can contain harmful toxins, including phthalates (a known endocrine disruptor), numerous allergy triggers, and more. According to the Environmental Working Group, the fragrance industry has about 3,100 stock chemical ingredients that most conventional perfume scents are derived from. The clever thing that perfume companies have done all along, is to keep their ingredients a secret. So you shouldn’t expect the ingredient list to contain ‘phthalates’ or ‘petroleum’ in it.

Our skin absorbs nearly 60% of what we put onto it. So the very presence of these toxins in conventional perfumes have caused headaches, skin allergy, and asthma, to name some of the ‘milder’ symptoms. These toxins enter our body not just through through the skin, but also through inhalation and oral consumption.

Because of all this, it’s a good idea to switch to natural fragrances and perfumes. 



What are Natural Fragrances?

First, let’s see what the difference is between perfume and fragrance; I don’t want to use them interchangeably here anymore. ‘Fragrance’ is an overarching term to describe a scent or aroma. It refers to perfumes, eau de toilette, or even the scent of a flower, and other naturally occurring scents. So perfume is a subset of fragrance.

Natural fragrances are compositions of natural aromatic raw materials such as essential oils, isolates, distillates, extracts and volatile concentrates. This is different from synthetic fragrances, which contain materials derived from petroleum and toxic chemicals such as toluene, aldehydes and benzene derivatives. Most conventional perfumes are synthetic, which is why we ought to look into natural, non toxic perfumes, and shop in that part of the perfume aisle.

With the options available today, it’s not hard to find natural, non toxic perfumes that smell just as good as (if not better than!) conventional perfumes.

 

How to Select a Non Toxic Perfume

We can’t easily know the exact ingredients in perfume formulations. There doesn’t seem to be any authority in charge of certifying perfumes as toxic or not, which means you have to do the job yourself. So, exercise sufficient caution while choosing a perfume for yourself.

  • Don’t buy any product that does not fully disclose all its ingredients.
  • When ingredients are listed, and you’re not sure what they mean, look them up on EWG’s Skin Deep database.
  • Look for products that only use natural, organic ingredients. They will probably state it on the packaging.
  • Go by trustworthy reviews online regarding the product ingredients and the company’s values regarding the use of toxins, concern for the environment, and position on animal abuse in laboratories.

Choosing a perfume is as personal as choosing what you wear. The scent of a particular perfume is also influenced by your natural body chemistry. Which is why the same perfume smells different on different people.

Perfume preferences also change with the season, with lighter, floral scents preferred during springtime and summer, and darker, muskier scents during the winter months.

As spring takes over, remember you don’t have to opt for conventional perfumes to get your favorite scent. Take a look at these natural, non toxic perfume brands, and make a choice that’s better for your health and that of the planet!
