Everything You Need To Know About Clean Perfume
As the winters slowly transition to spring – everything from parks, roadsides, forests & gardens are sprinkled with floral blooms. Nature inspires notes of fresh fragrance and artisanal perfumes formulated with clean ingredients that are gentle on the planet. With a plethora of fragrances lined up on the racks, it’s a rarity to find something that smells good yet reminds us of sustainability as the need of the hour.
Beauty and wellness product consumers are becoming more aware by the day. While there is quite a buzz about clean beauty, clean perfumes are yet to find their voice amongst the mass consumers. The world of perfume is a little murky with brands not being transparent about the labels and putting every under the umbrella term “fragrance”.
Still, wondering what exactly are clean perfumes? Here is all you need to know about it.
What Is Clean Perfume?
From earthy or woody tones to floral notes to fresh scents inspired by the sea, these perfumes have a natural fragrance. The perfumes are crafted with sustainable and skin-friendly components with the brands maintaining transparency on the ingredients used. Another crucial aspect is the use of ingredients that do not make the skin prone to irritation or adverse reactions.
The aim of formulating clean perfume is to keep it free of chemical toxins like sulphates, phthalates, parabens, and formaldehyde as well as a harmful essential oil. Most of the clean perfumes are inspired by botanical extracts, and herbs and curate a sustainable fragrance. Clean fragrances are much coveted essentials as we move into spring and trail through the summers. The perfumes are cruelty-free, recyclable, eco-conscious, sustainable, and majorly vegan.
Why Do You Need Clean Perfume?
Undoubtedly, clean perfumes for women and men are becoming essential with time. As per the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) as of 2022, nearly 3,619 fragrance and functional-based ingredients are listed out of which 100+ ingredients are used in perfume formulations.
However, a few studies show that some of the formulas might emit the same amount of chemical vapors as emissions from cars. These are known as VOCs or volatile organic compounds, that reach proteins in the body. These in turn are known to cause breathing issues, migraines, skin irritation, hormone imbalance, etc. This creates the need for clean perfumes to bridge the gap between undisclosed compositions to maintain transparency.
