Why Sensitive Skin Needs Fragrance Free Skin Care Products

If you've ever experienced redness, itching, or irritation after using skincare products, you're not alone. For many, the culprit behind these reactions is often fragrances or essential oils found in their skincare products. If you're tired of dealing with your sensitive skin problems, it might be time to switch to fragrance-free skincare products. Here's why:

Fragrance free skin care products are gentle on sensitive skin

Fragrance-free skin care products, like those offered by Bloom In Soap, are formulated without harsh fragrances or essential oils that can trigger reactions in sensitive skin. Instead, they focus on natural, soothing ingredients that nourish and protect your skin without causing irritation. Alison, Founder at Bloom In Soap, was inspired to create a range of fragrance free skin care products after a family member developed a sudden allergic reaction to a product containing artificial fragrance. The reaction resulted in red, itchy skin that developed into pustules and then left permanent bumps on the skin. Not only was this embarrassing, it also left permanent scarring.

Fragrance free skincare is safe for pregnant or nursing women

During pregnancy or while nursing, many women become more sensitive to fragrances and other chemicals found in skincare products. Choosing fragrance-free options provides peace of mind, knowing that you're not exposing yourself or your baby to potentially harmful ingredients. Bloom In Soap has created a collection of fragrance free skincare options to help, ranging from vegan soap to shea body butter and conditioning shampoo bars, all of which are fragrance free.
