In our products

Whether it’s to relieve stress, create a mood or to simply deliver a pleasant aroma, humans have relied on the unique power of fragrance for centuries. Similarly, the psychological and emotional benefits of fragrance for adults and babies are well-documented. We use fragrances in our products because consumers want them, preferring them in many cases to products that are fragrance-free. We continually make fragrance choices to ensure we’re always meeting consumer and safety needs.

What goes into a fragrance? While the exact contents of a fragrance oil are considered proprietary, we want you to know that the fragrances we make are created by combining only ingredients approved by the International Fragrance Association (IFRA),* the world’s leading authority on the safe use of fragrances. To arrive at our fragrance policy, we follow all IFRA allergy and irritation restrictions as well as those of regulatory safety authorities around the world.
