The way most fragrance ingredients impart scent is through a volatile reaction!!!
Unfortunately, this natural reaction almost always causes a sensitizing reaction on skin. In fact, research has established that fragrances in skincare products are among THE MOST common cause of sensitizing and other negative skin reactions! And this is true for ALL skin types, not just those with sensitive or redness-prone skin!
Fragrance ingredients can even crop up in products labeled “unscented” because companies use special fragrance chemicals known as masking agents to create that non-scent.
Just because your skin doesn’t show signs of being aggravated by the fragranced products you’re using, then it must not be a problem that applies to you. I so wish that were true but it’s still a serious concern because skin is very good at hiding when it’s being aggravated!
You might not SEE the damage on skin’s surface, but it can be silently occurring every day, causing minor problems for your skin in the short term and worse problems in the long term!!!
Think about it like sun damage. This begins within the first minute your unprotected skin sees the sun. This damage is cumulative and potentially deadly, yet separate from a sunburn or tan, you never feel or see anything taking place on the surface of your skin. All the damage is still taking place, but won’t show up on the surface of skin until years later!!!
Be pro-active and start protecting your skin NOW!!!
