I recently came across a company that stated in their product description "100% Natural Organic". When you continue to read the ingredients you notice the term "Fragrance". If a product label says 100% natural and contains Fragrance - its not 100% natural.
Quick Tip! When looking for a natural product with a scent, look for Essential Oil Blends. Fragrance is a synthetic ingredient and ranks an 8 on the Cosmetic Database which is high on their toxicity scale.
The word "fragrance" or "parfum" on the product label represents an undisclosed mixture of various scent chemicals and ingredients used as fragrance dispersants such as diethyl phthalate. Fragrance mixes have been associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress and potential effects on the reproductive system.
At First Element, we offer both a Natural Line and a Fragrance Line. We had a large demand to add some Fragrance Scented Mens Beard Care items in our Private Label Program. We decided to showcase these in our product line up, and list them as Fragrance Added.
