It's not surprising that we like things that are pleasing to the senses, especially things that smell nice. Fragrance, through lots of research, is known to to be a sensitizing ingredient for the skin. Our skin is very good at hiding when something irritates it. Think of damage from the sun. Damage begins as soon as sun hits the skin and below the surface. This type of damage is cumulative, as is fragrance in skincare products.
Skin irritation by fragrance occurs in the same way. There may not be any outward signs of damage in the short term, but over time this damage can affect the skin.
Earthen's line of natural skincare products are fragrance-free*. In fact, they are also cruelty-free. There is a difference between unscented and fragrance free. Unscented simply means that there is no odor to the product. Fragrance free means that no counter-balancing fragrances have been added, therefore making fragrance-free products less irritating to skin.
Earthen Skincare's line of natural skincare products are the perfect gift for your health and skin-conscious friend this holiday season. Start shopping!
*InstantPeel™ contains peppermint extract and therefore smells of peppermint.
