A reader from Italy has sent us a question about which unscented natural beauty products would be suitable for sensitive skin:
I’m trying to use more natural cosmetics. I have sensitive skin and I’m looking for natural cosmetic products that would have no scent. Can you tell what products without fragrances would be fine for my skin?
Scent is one of the aspects of beauty products that most enjoy; some even buy beauty products based solely on scent alone. I am very partial to the scent of roses, and have a hard time passing by beauty products, which contain the scent of roses.
However, some people either do not like scented beauty products, or their skin is sensitive to fragrant ingredients in the products. Conventional, synthetic beauty products contain synthetic scent ingredients (labeled as fragrance, perfume etc.). When it comes to natural beauty products, the source of scent are essential oils. Unfortunately, even though essential oils contain many skin-beneficial components, some people are allergic to essential oils.
So, which unscented natural products would be suitable for sensitive skin? We’ve compiled a few suggestions.
Here are some unscented natural beauty products for face care:
1. Acure Sensitive Facial Cleanser 2. Aubrey Organics Sunscreen SPF30 3. Badger Balm for Sensitive Dry Skin 4. Badger Balm Unscented Face Oil 5. Badger Balm Unscented Cleansing Oil 6.
