Did you ever go to a store and decide to choose shampoo based on the fragrance that comes out of the bottle after you flipped the lid open?

We all probably did, at some point! But what did we learn about synthetic fragrance so far?

Firstly, they can contain a wide range of chemicals, many of which are not disclosed on ingredient lists. This means that consumers may be unknowingly exposing themselves to harmful chemicals when they use products that contain synthetic fragrances.

Many of these chemicals have been linked to health problems such as allergies, asthma, and hormone disruption.

Synthetic fragrances can also be harmful to the environment. They are often not biodegradable and can persist in the environment for long periods of time. When they have washed down the drain, they can end up in waterways and cause harm to aquatic life.

Additionally, synthetic fragrances can also be a problem for people with chemical sensitivities or those who suffer from migraines. The chemical compounds used in synthetic fragrances can also trigger allergic reactions, respiratory problems, and headaches.

It is worth noting that synthetic fragrances are not regulated by FDA, and companies are not required to list individual ingredients in a fragrance!

Choose wisely, your body, your mind and this planet are the only three homes we have got!
