From AbdesSalaam Attar’s interview on Fragrantica
ASA: The so-called “natural allergens” are 16 molecules present in most essential oils that are “allergen by law,” but they are disobedient and persistently refuse to cause allergies to the people.
The body who recently decided that most natural essences are “legally” unsafe is IFRA, International Fragrance Association, a private entity representing the interests of the corporations of the fragrance industry. The power of IFRA is measured by the fact that the smallest of all creatures, atoms and molecules, refuse to take this organism into consideration.
In my fragrances might be naturally present the 16 so-called ‚Äúnatural allergens‚ÄĚ contained in essential oils. They are:
- cinnamic alcohol
- hexyl cinnamal
- anisic alcohol
- benzyl cinnamate
- d- limonene
- evernia prunastri extract
The presence of ingredients from animal origin is easily verified for each perfume. at the bottom of the product page of each fragrance.
Our fragrances 100% botanical are marked as ‚Äú VEGAN‚ÄĚ.
Those that contain products of animal origin are marked as ‚ÄúNON-VEGAN‚ÄĚ.
