What are fragrance oils?

 

Fragrance oils are oils artificially synthesized to mimic the scent of the essential oils. Over 99% of bath and beauty products on today’s’ market contain fragrance oils. While they may smell nice, fragrance oils are synthetic laboratory made products, synthesized from petrochemicals. They are used as a cheap way to mimic scents of specific plants such as flowers, fruit and vegetables. 95% of chemicals used in production of fragrance oils, as reported by National Academy of Sciences, are derived from petroleum and contain benzene derivatives, aldehydes and other known toxins capable of causing cancer, birth defects, central nervous system disorders and allergic reactions.

This is the reason why Nina Bella Collection products are 100% fragrance oils free. We use organic essential oils only.
