Do you know what's hiding in synthetic fragrances?
Scary but true!!! Megan Douglas, Naturopath, Medical Herbalist and Founder of World Organics discusses here the hidden health dangers of synthetic perfumes and fragrances in your skincare and beauty products
"For the last few generations we have been taught to desire and enjoy synthetic smells. Synthetic fragrances are now the new normal and are also confused with the real thing.
So what a synthetic smell does is that it simply mimics the real thing with similar chemical compounds arranged in a similar pattern. So the synthetic Rose can smell quite similar to real rose, but not quite right, or real. Sadly however our noses have often lost the ability to recognize what is real and what is not!
Synthetic perfumes are so successful and so widely used because they can create aromas that people have been educating into thinking are wonderful - for example a butterscotch or raspberry aromas - but most importantly they are common because they are cheap to make compared to the expense of real plant essential oils.
The good news is that over time we can retrain our noses to recognize the real aromas from the synthetic, just like you can taste real food over highly processed food. Part of our mission here at World Organic is to help those stuck with a love of synthetic aromas to get into recovery!!!
Okay – so there are three main issues with synthetic fragrance!
One is a lesser issue – and that is that the chemically manufactured scent does not contain the therapeutic properties of the real ingredient so the true power of the plant is lost. There is absolutely no therapeutic action on the skin nor enhancement of positive emotions with the cheaper synthetic version.
Secondly the international cosmetic Labeling Acts requires brands to list and disclose all ingredients in that product on the products packaging. So this is good! However – and this is a big concern – the ingredient terms ‘fragrance’ or ‘perfume’ are exceptions.
The term ‘fragrance’ on labels basically is a term use for any group of any chemicals that are lumped together to make that fragrance – and therefore the chemical ingredients in that fragrance are therefore hidden!
Why on earth would this be allowed is a very good question! Well this was created to protect company’s “secret formula’ apparently. What it does not do however is protect the customer.
Also as an aside not only do we not have any idea what is actually in that fragrance mix it is also not uncommon in the industry for a manufacturer to hide chemicals unrelated to the fragrance in the product’s “hidden fragrance mixture”.
The end result is that the average ‘fragrance’ product tested contained 14 secret chemicals not listed on the label.
Which leads me to the third problem and in my mind the worse one – the toxic issues associated with many of the chemicals hidden within fragrance.
Many of these chemicals are associated with hormone disruption and degenerative diseases. They are also for many high allergens. In fact "Perfume" is the second most common cause of allergy in patients at dermatology clinics.
Many are irritants and can trigger allergies, migraines, and asthma symptoms.
Synthetic musks used in fragrances are of particular concern as they are bio-cumulative in fat tissue in the human body and from an ecological perspective have been shown to be dangerous also as they don’t break down when they get into the water ways and are shown to build up in the fatty tissue of aquatic organisms
Some fragrance ingredients are not perfuming agents themselves but they enhance the performance of perfume, mainly by helping them linger around. The biggest concern is the use of phylates (tha-lates), or DEP
Phthalates are commonly used ingredients in cosmetics because they are cheap and versatile.
Research has found that more than 75 percent of products listing the ingredient “fragrance” contained phthalates (THAL-ates) which have been shown to
disrupt hormone activity,
reduce s***m counts,
cause reproductive malformation,
and they have been linked to liver and breast cancer, diabetes, and obesity.
Additionally, studies link fetal exposure with autism, ADHD, and neurological disorders.
Also phyltaes and DEP is listed as a Priority Toxic Pollutant under the U.S. Clean Water Act, based on evidence that it can be toxic to wildlife and the environment.
So “Fragrance” is at the top of our “no-no” list at World Organics. If a manufacturer isn’t willing to list ALL of a product’s ingredients on its label, that’s a real deal breaker for me. I hope it is for you, too
Okay we need to re- educate our noses and that of our customers to enjoy and prefer clean, healthy, natural aromas in their products.
Of course none of the products in World Organics range contain any synthetic fragrances or perfumes – and yet we often get told how much people love the aromas of our products.
We use essential oils and also we extensively use Supercritical extracted plant oils. Supercritically extracted aromatic plant oils are also considered the top of the top in regards to quality and therapeutic value as they best represent the real smell of a plant and are considered the mots whole. – so we can be proud that our products are using some of the very best natural fragrances around.
Juniper CO2, Honeysuckle CO2, Jasmine CO2 and Lotus CO2,
These aromatic oils we use work therapeutically as well as smelling gorgeous. We have chosen particular essential oil synergies in our formulations based on aromatic appeal and also their beneficial qualities on the skin such as
- skin pe*******on,
- being a natural antiseptic,
- and anti-inflammatory, wound healing or regenerating properties
Also they are wonderful mood enhancement ingredients that interact with the Limbic system in the brain which plays and part in emotions and feelings - and we often note that when we refer to products such as The Carefree Cleanser as its based on sweet Orange which makes us feel happier and therefore more Carefree.
There is one more point however I will make on essential oils.
Essential oils are potent and for some people they can also be a little reactive.
For that reason on World Organics product cartons we follow the European legal requirements and list all natural chemical components of our essential oils that have been shown in some people to cause reactions
When you see at the end of our ingredient panel names with a little asterix next to them such as Citral, Eugenol, Farnesol etc which says Component of Natural Essential Oils - these relate to specific parts of Natural Essential Oils that may cause sensitivities in some people. If someone does know they have sensitivities to oils they can refer to this list and steer away from any they have issues with. This is like having a may this product contains traces of dairy on the label for food."
