It's no secret that common fragrances and perfumes contain carcinogens such as synthetic musk and hormone disruptors in the form of pthalates. I wanted to give people the option of wearing perfume that is safe, natural and absolutely heavenly.
(PRWEB) December 28, 2011
Cocoon Apothecary, Canada's organic skin care company, announces the launch of three single note natural perfume oils - Lavender, Neroli (orange blossom) and Rose.
The flowers were chosen for their ability to stand alone as beautiful fragrances and are all traditional perfume ingredients used for centuries around the world. They also have well-researched medicinal components that tackle emotional issues such as stress and anxiety. It veers away from the petroleum laden, invasive scents that dominate the current perfume industry.
"It's no secret that common fragrances and perfumes contain carcinogens such as synthetic musk and hormone disruptors in the form of pthalates ,” says Cocoon Apothecary founder Jessica Burman. “I wanted to give people the option of wearing perfume that is safe, natural and absolutely heavenly. We've enjoyed these particular scents for thousands of years so it's a bit of a comeback from the cheap, petroleum byproducts that we've been forced to wear in the last century."
The natural perfume oils are available online and retail for $22.
