A spritz of perfume makes us feel truly ready for the day. But recently, we’ve taken a step back and noticed how just about every perfume contains alcohol. While we don’t mind a tipple here and there (or a lot more than that!), we know that alcohol in beauty can be harsh on your skin. Not only is it drying and uncomfortable, but it can also enlarge our pores and wreak havoc with blemishes and sensitivity.
There are now alcohol-free perfume brands that promise the same standard of gorgeous fragrances as your traditional perfumes, but without the nasties. Formulated without alcohol, phthalates, and other harsh chemicals, this new breed of clean perfumes is much kinder to your skin and overall health. And being cruelty-free, they’re kinder to our planet too. Keep reading if you want to find the best alcohol free perfume to add to your collection!
Why Use an Alcohol-Free and Cruelty-Free Perfume?
Alcohol is found in lots of beauty products, as it helps with absorption and allows products to apply easily. However, alcohol can dry your skin out in the long term and cause a lot of discomfort and irritation. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend cutting out alcohol-based products from your beauty routine. But don’t worry, you can still enjoy your G&T!
Organic alcohol free perfumes can also be worn in the sun without risk of staining the skin as traditional perfumes do. And cruelty-free formulas are much kinder to nature, animals, and the world around us. There are no reasons NOT to make the switch!
