Why is synthetic fragrance bad for you?
Have you ever walked into a room and got an immediate migraine from the cloud of cheap cologne or perfume?
All you have to do is a simple Google search of “synthetic fragrance” to be floored by how bad it is for your health.
Synthetic fragrance is in 95% of the products we buy, including shampoo, body lotion, cleaning products, air fresheners, laundry detergent, etc. Synthetic fragrance could be basically over 600 harmful chemicals disguised under “fragrance” or “parfum” in the ingredients list.
These toxic chemicals are linked to cancer, birth defects, hormone imbalance, nervous system disorders and allergies. They are also made from crude oil which is terrible for the environment.
So why do companies add them to your everyday products? Because they are cheap and potent! This is why you can find shampoo and household cleaner for under $5 at the grocery store.
Are there cleaning products with healthy scents?
Yes. We use only pure organic essential oils in our Mint Cleaning products. They are specifically chosen for cleaning benefits and are actually HEALTHY for you to use! Win win!
Pure essential oils are a million times more expensive (like everything good in this world), which is why switching to non toxic products is harder on your wallet, but at what cost to your health?
Make sure you always check ingredients lists before you buy. Choose items that are “fragrance free” or scented with only pure essential oils.
