8 Fragrance-Free Products for Sensitive Skin
Having sensitive skin can be incredibly irritating (both physically and psychologically), and shopping for sensitive skin products can be even worse. Here's the silver lining: the ingredients that irritate you, such as "fragrance," are actually pretty bad for you, too. According to the Environmental Working Group, a product that lists "fragrance" or "parfum" on the label may be hiding a pretty ugly truth: "[the term] represents an undisclosed mixture of various scent chemicals and ingredients used as fragrance dispersants such as diethyl phthalate. Fragrance mixes have been associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress and potential effects on the reproductive system."
So don't feel sad about missing out on perfumed lotions and cleansers — by going fragrance-free, you're doing yourself a solid. Take a look at these for starters.
