Our Ingredients

We don't use SD alcohol in our fragrances. Many modern perfumes (especially all natural ones) are going away from SD alcohol as a base. It can dry out the skin and hair and it's highly flammable. Also it just seems weird to spray high grade vodka all over one's body. Here's how we make a higher quality fragrance without it. 

*Note, we literally went through over 150 recipes to come up with this perfect formula. We don't anticipate it changing ever again, it's the "holy grail" of non-alcohol perfume. 

Fragrance: 22% of our bottle is perfume oil. Perfume oil is expensive and most companies use less and then use chemistry tricks (the 300 chemicals) to make the fragrance still smell strong and last for hours. Perfume oil is what actually creates the smell. Most perfume oil is synthetic, some is natural. The oils we use naturally vary from bottle to bottle depending on what fragrance is requested.

We can financially afford this higher volume of perfume oil because we don't hire Paris Hilton to pitch our product, and because we don't have to make billions of dollars to keep our shareholders happy.

Isopropyl Myristate: This ingredient is here to "carry" the fragrance and we use it because we think it makes for a longer lasting fragrance than using alcohol because it does not evaporate as quickly.

Isopropyl Myristate has been extensively tested and is regarded as an extremely safe ingredient to put on your skin. It is used very commonly used in fragrances, shampoos, bath oils, antiperspirants, deodorants, and various creams and lotions. There are numerous agencies and third parties that have tested it, if you have any concerns about it at all Google it and you will find this to be true. It should not be sprayed in the eyes or ingested (it will upset your stomach to drink it), but for the skin it's harmless.

Cyclomethicone: We use Cyclomethicone because it is very low viscosity so it thins the fragrance so that it can be sprayed as a mist. Alcohol (Ethanol) is very much like water so it can be sprayed easily, if you forego alcohol it can make the fragrance thicker and it sprays in a stream. Cyclomethicone also evaporates quickly so it makes the fragrance "flower" and spread out from the body making it easier to smell. When combined with Isopropyl Miristate you get the best of both worlds, a long lasting fragrance that wafts through the air in a pleasant way.  Finally,  Cyclomethicone feels very nice on the skin.

Cyclomethicone is a synthetic liquid silicone commonly found in perfumes and other cosmetics. It is perfectly safe for humans and the FDA and California both say it's completely safe. You know if it passes California's stringent standards then you are good to go. 

That's it, your fragrance won't contain anything else, we guarantee it. We care about your safety. Quite frankly, we also care about ours, we make your product and work with our ingredients by hand extensively.
