What are Phthalates

jyu

Phthalates are a group of chemicals used in products like toys, detergents, nail polish, and hair spray. They’re used to make products more flexible and harder to break.

They’re added to fragrance oils for a few reasons. Certain aroma chemicals come in powder form, so a phthalate like diethylphthalate (DEP) is used to convert them into a liquid. That helps the fragrance blend better and burn more easily in candles. DEP is also a fixative, which makes scent last longer in perfume, soap, and lotion.

 Why did we remove phthalates

We started getting emails, calls, and social media comments from customers about phthalates. They were concerned about potential health effects and wanted to know if we could remove them. Because it’s important to our customers, we decided to reformulate all purenso's fragrance oils.

Why Phthalates in Perfumes are Dangerous?

Phthalates are well-known as an endocrine-disrupting chemical (EDC) that can disrupt hormonal balance and may cause developmental, reproductive, and other serious health issues.

Phthalates, that are present in perfumes, can enter the human body through the skin or by inhaling. Researchers found that these chemicals are persistent and can intensify inside the body.

Surprisingly, phthalates that are found in perfumes don’t show any acute poisoning symptoms immediately, they stay inside the body and very slowly accumulate within the fatty tissues, which tends to long-term serious chronic illness in the future.

Although it’s very hard to avoid exposure to phthalates completely nowadays, you can easily prevent yourself, your family, and your friends from higher levels of phthalates exposures that can cause serious health issues by only choosing the right products wisely.
