We all love skin care that smells good, but fragrance can do more harm than good. Sure, it keeps you smelling fresh and feeling clean, yet fragrance often causes allergies and skin irritation. If you have sensitive skin, it may not be a bad idea to eliminate fragrance and perfumes from your skin care routine. Here is our case for considering using fragrance free skin care!
So What Does Fragrance Free Actually Mean?
The phrase “fragrance free” refers to products that contain no trace of scents, perfume, or cologne whatsoever. Many traditional soaps list fragrance or perfume in their ingredients, so if you choose to go fragrance free, we recommend investing in sensitive skin care. You will also have to begin reading labels carefully. Fragrance can sneak into skin care products under the guise of parfum and diethyl phthalate, so check out the ingredients list before committing to a new product.
The Dangers of Fragrance
Fragrance is a known allergen and often causes skin irritation and allergic reactions. If you have sensitive skin, fragrance can also aggravate problematic skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin. Keep in mind that your body’s reaction can be more than just a rash; an overload of scented products can lead to headaches or asthma. Many countries even ban fragrance from their products. Because fragrance can be harmful, we suggest avoiding it when you can.
