Real Talk on 'Clean' Fragrances

Thanks to guerrilla social media marketing, ‘clean' fragrance ads are everywhere... with endless brands touting ‘paraben-free’ this & ‘phthalates-free’ that. 

  

DO YOU KNOW THAT ‘CLEAN' FRAGRANCE CLAIMS ARE MOSTLY UNREGULATED IN THE UNITED STATES?

Point being, in the United States, no one (or nothing) is in charge of holding companies accountable for the ingredients they're using in their formulas. In fact, over the course of the last few years, we've personally discovered several brands that claim to be natural & organic, when in reality (per the GC/MS reports we ran), their fragrances were anything but natural & organic. 


Even more alarming, we're certain you’d be shocked to learn the ingredients used to manufacture traditional perfumes/colognes…yes, even the extremely expensive brands. From hormone disruptors, phthalates, styrene, and musk ketones, to ethylene glycol, acetaldehyde, and oxybenzone, large, luxury fragrance manufacturers are scrambling to reformulate their fragrances in response to ‘clean beauty’ trends.


With that being said, allurESSENCES’ promise to you is that we guarantee our list of ingredients is 100% truthful & accurate. 


We only use the highest-quality, skin-safe ingredients &

pure, natural essential oils for scenting.

And, we never test on animals.

What We Mean by 'Allergen Free'

  As stated, Pure Love {Boho} is considered ‘allergen free’ in accordance with IFRA guidelines. So, what does that mean, exactly?


Our fragrance manufacturer, Alpha Aromatics, strictly adheres to the guidelines of IFRA & are members of Fragrance Creators Association (the North American Affiliate of IFRA; https://www.fragrancecreators.org/). Per IFRA, if a fragrance is free from the 26 known perfume allergens, it can be considered ‘allergen free’ (see list of perfume allergens here: https://ec.europa.eu/health/scientific_committees/opinions_layman/perfume-allergies/en/index.htm#7).

That said, the list of perfume ingredients that a person could a) be allergic to, or, b) have a sensitivity to, is entirely endless.


Therefore, due to use of natural essential oils in our formula, we highly recommend you purchase a sample to ensure that you do not have any sensitivities to the ingredients, and to ensure that you love how it smells. Because our product bottles are currently not tamper-proof, we have a no refund/return policy. See our ‘Policy’ details here: https://pureloveessences.com/ingredients-%26-more

Wearing & Caring for Your Essences

 HOW TO WEAR YOUR PURE LOVE ESSENCES

{...wait for it...}   

Our essences were designed to be nothing like traditional perfumes, and the magic of Pure Love Essences happens at the ‘dry down’ {or the end notes that remain on your skin}, when the aromatic ingredients mingle & develop with each wearer's unique body chemistry. Their aromas range from very light-to-medium, yet are extremely intoxicating & addicting, and unfold in a singular way on each wearer. Due to some of the ingredients used in our Pure Love {Boho}, specifically, some wearers experience olfactory fatigue very quickly. In the event this happens, give yourself a break from wearing this essence for a few days, and then go back to it. 


Kindly Do Not Judge the Essences from the Bottle 

These essences are designed to be applied to clean, warm, unscented skin, and will develop & mingle with your body's unique chemistry over time. Allow at least 15 minutes for the most authentic aura of these essences to fully develop. 

Please note that if your skin OR the mist/oil is cold, you will notice little to no scent at all. 


For Maximum Intensity & Best Aromatic Results

Spritz your body {hair/clothes} with Sheer Essence Mist, and then layer with Pure Essence Oil {designed for pulse points & warm areas of your body}. 


HOW TO STORE YOUR PURE LOVE ESSENCES

We do not add harmful UV filters & preservatives to any of our products, so please keep all Pure Love products out of direct sunlight and store at room temperature.
