Important knowledge about ærlig allergy-friendly perfumes
Allergy-friendly scents are different from ordinary scents. Allergy-friendly fragrances are free of the vast majority of essential oils, making them generally more special.
Therefore, you may also find that some allergy-friendly perfumes do not last as long as regular perfumes, because you have to refrain from using ingredients that help make the base notes that last a long time.
It is therefore a long process to develop fragrances for ærlig, as we want the perfumes to last as long as possible and smell fantastic.
The 26 Allergens
ærlig’s products are without the 26 most common substances that the EU's cosmetics directive believes can cause allergies.
In regard to Etheric oils, almost all oils will be affected by this directive, as the allergens are found in many of the flower oils, and in all of the citrus oils and oriental oils.
There are only a few oils, that do not contain the 26 allergens.
ærlig perfumes have been dermatologically tested.
This means that the perfumes have undergone several tests to ensure that they do not cause skin irritation.
The tests have been conducted by an independent research institute and is the consumer's guarantee that the approved products are classified as skin-friendly.
However, it is not possible to completely rule out cases of skin reactions, due to individual sensitivity to one or more other ingredients.
In some cases, a perfume can cause contact dermatitis if the skin is exposed to sunlight.
ærlig perfumes have been test free of phototoxicity.
