Scentbird in Touch with Nature: Earth Inspired Scents2 min read
Inspired by animal welfare, environmental and health concerns, we here at Scentbird make sure that our personal care and home collection contains no parabens, sulfates and is 100% cruelty-free.
Parabens are widely used as preservatives in personal care products, and their main task is to curb bacterial growth and extend the shelf life of those products. However, many scientific researches have determined that parabens are potential endocrine disruptors. Parabens specifically mimic the hormone estrogen and could thus interfere with the production of that hormone.
Sulfates are effective cleansing agents that cause the foaming action commonly associated with soaps, but can also be found in toothpaste, shampoo, and body washes, among other products. Sulfates are a health concern because they have the ability to break down proteins, which can have a degenerative effect on the cell membranes. Sulfates are also linked to residue in the heart, lungs, and brain.
Addressing the many environmental concerns, here are ingredients we source sustainably in our products:
- Organic red rice powder that naturally sloughs away dead skin cells;
- Blackberry fruit extract provides powerful antioxidant benefits to the skin
- Ground coconut shell exfoliates to reveal radiant and smooth skin
- Rosehip Oil is rich in essential fatty acids which help to improve skin elasticity and restore its moisture.
Our scents and products pull inspiration from the earth, here are a few of our fave fragrances that do the same.
