Why Our Natural Perfumes Are Safer

Why Our Natural Perfumes Are Safer

Who said perfume has to be bad for you? That was the question we at EG asked ourselves a year ago when we began developing our naturalPerfume collection. Made with 100% pure essential oils, these Perfumes are unlike any commercial fragrance in that they’re much safer. Safe products begin with pure, quality ingredients which is why we believe this is Perfume as it should be.


We start with a base of grain alcohol that is so pure, it’s drinkable. A bitter denaturing agent is then added, making the alcoholundrinkable, thus SD stands for “specially denatured.” Unlike perfumer’s alcohol, which is a combination of alcohols and harmful chemicals, and isopropyl alcohol, SD alcohol is not as harsh or drying but rathercools and refreshes the skin. SD alcohol is also a great carrier that helps diffuse essential oils, and evaporates quickly, leaving behind the potent aroma of the oils. What’s more is that when used in conjunction withskin nourishing ingredients, SD alcohol is even more palatable to the skin, which brings us to our next ingredient.


Rated as a low hazard ingredient by theEnvironmental Working Group, propanediol is skin-loving, increases cell hydration and is naturally derived. Propylene glycol is closely related to propanediol in structure, and is often used instead of propanediol because it is cheaper. Unfortunately,propylene glycol is irritating at concentrations as low as 2% and stops collagen production. The propanediol in our natural Perfumes is alsoenvironmentally friendly, using 40% less energy to produce and reducing greenhouse gases by 20%. Edens Garden formulators thus chose propanediol for its nourishing benefits, low irritating potential, because it’s naturally derived and because it’s safer than the alternatives.


Using essential oils in the Edens Garden Perfume collection was a given, not only because we at EG love them, but also because fragrance as an ingredient in cosmetics can have a variety of health concerns. Typically, fragrances contain solvents, stabilizers, UV-absorbers, preservatives, and dyes.


Whereas pure essential oils are derived from plant parts, fragrances are commonly a combination of synthetic chemicals, often derived from petroleum. According to the EWG, the average fragrance contains 14 chemicals not listed on the label. When sprayed or applied, many of these undisclosed chemicals are inhaled and absorbed through the skin. Over time, the chemicals accumulate in the body and result in health issues. Rather than guessing what hidden ingredients hide behind “fragrance” in your cosmetics, try our natural Perfume collection, made with 100% pure essential oils and ingredients that don’t compromise on your safety.

Like to try sample first

I agree that sample sizes to try would be helpful. Perfumes change “flavor” once I wear them a while. I really don’t like smelling like ripe wet baby diapers when out on a nice date with my husband. I don’t object to paying for the samples. I’d just much rather not spend fifty dollars then not be able to wear it
Thank you

Do you know if these perfumes are long lasting on the skin like other perfume? I have aphrodisiac and XOXO from Eden’s garden and they do not stay fragrant on my skin. Thank you

Thank you

I agree with the other commentators. Samples or smaller sizes for sale would be nice. I hesitate to purchase a larger size not knowing how the fragrance will wear on me.

I also would be interested in a sample just because I am allergic to perfume.

PLEASE PLEASE
do you offer a sample pack with all the perfumes

I have ordered one of your perfumes but would really like to have some kind of sample of them all

Do you have samples of the perfumes. I would like to try some.

It would be very difficult to purchase any perfume online w/o having a chance to see how they bloom on my skin. Any chance you will offer small sample packs for sale in the near future? Thanks for your consideration!

I have the same question as Carolyn

I agree with others! Need samples of each before slapping down $50 for perfume. I’m very interested but don’t want to buy and have to return. Offer samples please!!!

Hi. I love the concept and use many Edens Garden products as well as recommend them and give them as gifts. In my experience, perfumes are different when worn for about an hour compared to the scent in the bottle. I don’t mind paying for them, but I’d like a sample set of your new perfumes before I buy. I’d love to give these as gifts with a certificate to buy the one they like. Perhaps you could have this available? The same for your new soaps. Thank you. God bless!

How wonderful to see perfumes have joined EG! I will definitely be finding my perfume here!

I agree with Carolyn Day. I would pay for samples but want to smell before I buy! Is that possible?

Linda

Would you please send me samples first, so I may see if I like them?
Sincerely and God Bless you,
I’ll send my address if you can send them to me,
Linda

Do you have any samples of the perfumes? I am interested in them but want to know how they smell on me!
