The history of perfume can be found among some of the first civilisations…
Ancient tribes used to adorn themselves with sweet smells of natural flowers and oils from plants. The ancient Egyptians were the first to incorporate it into their culture by making it a tradition to offer incense at the burials of mummies, believing that perfume was the sweat of the gods. During this time it was made from dried flowers, herbs and spices, to give the fragrances a distinctive scent.
Later in history it became central to Arabian culture, which is often called, the ‘Land of Perfumes’. The most well-known Arabian scent is ‘Oud’ which is actually made from tree bark.At MettaLife, this got us thinking how so many perfumes we buy are so far from their natural origin and smell. Like us, you might be shocked to know how many toxins are now found in modern day fragrances. These include:
3. Benzyl acetate
4. Benzyl alcohol
6. Methylene chloride
This is a short list of the many toxins that can be found in the perfume and aftershave we buy on our high street.
Have you ever sprayed perfume directly on to your skin to find it goes red or slightly bumpy? Often even stinging?This is due to the amount of toxins in the perfumes we are so used to buying. Studies have recently found that one perfume ingredient called ‘styrene’ is commonly used in a variety of everyday products, has a direct link to causing cancer!
Finding Vegan Organic Perfume and Aftershave Brands
At MettaLife, we were so upset to hear this that we set out to go back to the original purpose of these fragrances and find Vegan Organic Perfume and Aftershave brands that use only completely natural ingredients. On our market place, our wonderful brands do exactly that! The perfume and aftershave sold on MettaLife is vegan, natural and 100% ethical.
