It’s well known from extensive research that fragrance is a common sensitizing ingredient for all skin types. Yet, despite this information, fragrance is common in more skincare products than you can imagine.
Many people don’t realize the damage fragrance does to your skin and your body… and if you think you are “safe” because you purchase “unscented” products, think again.
Many synthetic ingredients used in skincare (natural products included, especially water-based skincare) have a horrible odor.
In order to cover up the bad odor, so you will apply it to your face or body, companies will use fragrance (the F-word of skincare) to neutralize the bad odor… odor eater chemicals if you will.
So, when it comes to your beauty care products, the magic rule of thumb is the first 5 ingredients are the ones that matter the most. After the fifth ingredient everything else is probably below the 1% line. This is where a lot of “questionable and obscure” ingredients hide.
What? 1% line? What the heck is that?
Simply put, any ingredient that is less than 1% of the total recipe can be listed in any order. This is a great marketing ploy and a way companies can make you believe the ingredients are “better” than they really are.
How to find the 1% line?

Lately, I have been secretly asking people to tell me about their skin… I want to understand what most women between the ages of 20-110 are dealing with.
The overwhelming response has been “my skin is so sensitive!”
There it was… sensitive skin.
I remember the days when my skin was “sensitive”.
