Fragrance, the word seems to be trending in the skincare world. However, fragrance is one of the most irritating and allergenic ingredients in your skincare products. It can trigger irritations, allergies, eczema, headaches, psoriasis, nausea, asthma, hives, and more.
And because of the loophole on the FDA’s regulation of personal care products, it’s allowed - they aren’t truthful about it, and it’s added to everything!
According to the Environmental Working Group, the average fragrant contains about 14 secret chemicals that aren’t listed on the label, many of which are linked to hormone disruption, nervous system issues and allergic reactions, as well as about 80 percent of them not being tested for human safety specifically in personal care products.
Short term effect of using these fragrance filled products is redness and irritation. This is true for all skin types not just those with sensitive skin. Experts believe you should stay away from fragrance even if you don’t have sensitive skin or see a reaction. They feel there’s still a serious concern because the skin is very good at hiding when it’s being aggravated.
You might not see the damage on the skin’s surface, but it can be silently occurring every day. Think of it as the effects of the sun on unprotected skin. The bottom line is if you have a broken skin barrier or sensitive skin, steer clear at all costs.
We want to assure you that here at Sanbe Beauty, we never add volatile or masking skin-aggravating fragrances of any kind to our products and never have.
