Have you noticed that on the labels of your skin products there are very complicated names and you do not know what they really are? That’s when you should be a little careful before buying a new product that you have not investigated before because one of those many names that you can read on the labels, can be alcohol or some type of fragrance.
Fragrances in products is something that we must avoid at all costs, why?

It does not matter if it is a natural or synthetic fragrance, both have this high level of risk.
As I mentioned before, analyzing the labels can be a difficult task because the fragrance does not always appear as its name is “Fragrance, parfum, aroma, perfume”, etc.
The fragrance tends to adhere to the formulas because this increases the consumption of the product, but the quality of the product is not always due to the ingredients it contains, but also to the ones it does not contain.
