What signs are there that I could be intolerant to fragrances?
The skin's reaction to fragrance chemicals can produce rashes, hives, dermatitis,
or eczema. Other symptoms can include watery eyes, nausea, sore throat, cough, and
chest tightness, headaches, the inability to concentrate, dizziness and fatigue.
Even essential oils can cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Essential
oils naturally contain a range of fragrance compounds, amongst which are several
that, in isolation, have been shown to cause allergic reaction. These include substances
such as Linalool, Limonene and Geraniol which are found in Lavender, Orange and
Most people can tolerate these naturally occurring fragrance ingredients even if
they are sensitive to the same substance when it is isolated or made synthetically.
However, those people with extreme sensitivities may need to avoid all forms of
fragranced products, which is why we launched our Sensitive scent-free range.

"I have recently enjoyed discovering your Sensitive Range, as there's not much out
there for those of us who have chemical sensitivities, which for me includes problems
with perfumes - natural or otherwise. So far, the shampoo and conditioner have been
a pleasure to use and they have a 'luxury' feel, which becomes very important when
you can't enjoy even a delicate perfume! My husband who suffers from dermatitis
is now enjoying them too."

"I would just like to say how wonderful your Neutral/Scent Free Cleanser is for
me. I have had rosacea for many years and avoid caffeine quite easily. However finding
a make-up remover which avoids harsh chemicals and perfume is an almost impossible
task, so I was delighted to find your product which is really gentle on my face,
but nevertheless does a thorough cleansing job. It even removes my mascara! Thank
