Secret Scent - nuturing your body and the environment.

Secret Scent, an Australian owned, aromatherapy-based business proudly hand make

all their products without any harsh chemicals that can potentially poison your body

and the environment.

 

POINTS TO CONSIDER:

The average home today contains 62 toxic chemicals - more than a chemistry lab at the turn of

the century. We put many of these products in our hair, on our face and skin, which is our largest

organ. Is it any wonder the incidences of allergies and diseases such as cancer are skyrocketing?

  • Less than 2% of synthetic chemicals have been tested for toxicity, mutagenic, carcinogenic, or
  • birth defects. Do we really know what the long term outcome of having all these chemicals in

    our household and toiletry bag is going to be?

     

    HERE’S JUST SOME OF THE CHEMICALS FOUND IN REGULAR SHAMPOOS/CLEANSERS:

    ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS

     

     

    The US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) report into chemicals used in personal care

    products stated:

    “continual introduction of these benzoates (parabens) into sewage treatment systems and directly to

    recreational waters from the skin leads to the question of risk to aquatic organisms.”

    Scientists in Europe have found other endocrine-disrupting body care chemicals in the bodies of

    fish that humans are eating, and in human breast milk.

    All of Secret’s Scent’s products are 100% natural.
