Differences between Natural-Organic and Synthetic Scents

In the world of fragrances today, you will discover ones that include a high percentage of synthetic ingredients as well as ones that include natural ones. At one time in history, all scents came from natural-organic sources such flowers and herbs, but these scents were expensive to make and buy. Chemists then discovered how to replicate scents in an artificial manner. Since the artificial scents cost less to use in manufacturing, the perfume companies began to mass-produce their scents at a price that was affordable for all consumers. We provide you an explanation of both kinds of scents below in order for you to understand their differences.

Description of Synthetic Scents

Companies manufacture artificial or synthetic scents by combining synthetically created aromatics together into unique blends. While these fragrances may provide a long lasting aroma for you throughout the day, only some are from natural sources. The one benefit for these scents is for the industry since the formulations of the perfumes can be precisely replicated in mass quantities. We discuss the drawbacks to these scents latter in this information.

Information about Natural Scents

In comparison to the synthetic makeup of artificial scents, naturally based perfumes contain scents that come from plants, such as trees, fruits, flowers, herbs and roots along with animal sources for  fragrances. These elements go through a distillation process to create essential oils. The perfumer skillfully combines various ones of these essential oils to create the top, middle and bottom notes of their unique perfumes. Unfortunately supply and price of materials can vary wildly each harvest.

Drawbacks of Synthetic Fragrances

With synthetic fragrances, you will be applying artificial ingredients to the skin. These ingredients often include known allergens that may trigger respiratory problems, asthma attacks and skin rashes for the wearers. In addition, they may contain neurotoxins that can seep deep into the body over time to negatively affect the nervous system and the immune system. When you wear or dispose of unused synthetic scents, their ingredients can also pollute the environment.

Benefits of Natural Perfumes

You can avoid the issues of synthetic scents when you turn to natural ones. Only if you are allergic to a particular element in nature will you have an adverse reaction (some citrus oils or lavender for example) to natural-organic perfumes. As a rule, people are only allergic to a small percentage of plants, so they easily can find a natural scent that is ideal for them. Also, natural-organic elements are gentler on the skin.  In addition, these products will not taint the environment.
