Have you ever opened a jar of moisturizer and were met with a striking aroma? Perhaps you love and continue to use a particular product because of the way it smells. However, is added fragrance beneficial to the skin? Unfortunately, there's no benefit other than just a nice smelling product. We'd love to inform you as to why fragrance is best avoided entirely!
Why do skincare companies use fragrances in their products? Most conventional skincare lines add fragrance to cover up unpleasant smelling formulas. Frankly, chemical-heavy formulas just don't smell nice! Unfortunately, these added fragrances are often irritating to the skin, especially sensitive skin. They’re also endocrine disruptors, meaning they can negatively affect our hormones. There’s not much regulation in the US when it comes to skincare ingredient lists. Companies can list “fragrance” or “parfum” making it seem like a lone ingredient when in reality it could be 300+ ingredients!
Fortunately, with House of Hilt, one never has to be concerned about sensitizing ingredients that can be detrimental to our health. We’re a filler-free company so you won't find added fragrance in any of our products. The beautiful aromas naturally occurring in the botanicals, herbs, and fruits in our formulas don’t need any extra help. So rest assured, you and your beautiful skin are in good hands.
