Create your own, organic signature scent! Much like natural flavor in food, the ingredients in fragrance don’t have to be listed on the package due to trade secret labeling laws.
Most mainstream body sprays contain masking agents that are listed on a labels as “parfum” or “fragrance” but can actually contain up to 500 hundred unknown, untested, harmful ingredients. The scary part is that manufacturers aren’t required by law to tell us what those are. One of the biggest concerns among those hidden components are Phthalates – developmental, respiratory + immune system toxicants as well as probable neurotoxins, possible carcinogens + endocrine disruptors. Yuck! Cancer Cocktail anyone? The only way to truly know what’s in your body spray is to find a USDA Certified Organic one, or make one yourself.
