At Soapinessence, we only use essential oils, never fragrance oils.
Essential Oils are natural, fragrant, therapeutic botanical oils that come directly from plants, flowers, herbs, spices and fruits. To make essential oils, large quantities of fresh flowers, leaves and other fragrant plant material (such as citrus peels or cinnamon bark) are pressed or steam distilled to release their natural oils. Essential oils contribute clean, beautiful scents to our soaps, but they also carry the healing properties and skin care benefits of the plants themselves. To learn more about specific essential oils and their properties, please refer to our Essential Oils page.
Fragrance Oils are synthetically produced chemical compounds. While fragrance oils are available in an endless array of scents, they do not add any skin care benefits to the soap and they can often irritate sensitive skin, noses and can also dry out your skin. Most fragrances contain chemical stabilizers called phthalates, which are shown to have harmful effects even with relatively low levels of use.
