  • WHY FRAGRANCE?

    We believe sensoriality is key to enjoying and using skin care. So we use the minimum amount of fragrance to create a pleasant skin-care experience and to help mask ingredients and actives that don't smell great on their own. We never use more than 0.5% of Synthetic Fragrance in our formulas and use naturally derived fragrances or fragrances created from edible ingredients whenever possible.
