When we purchase candles labeled "Soy," we anticipate enjoying a clean and health-conscious ambiance without harmful additives like synthetic fragrances or potentially toxic ingredients.
However, many soy candles on the market, despite their soy wax base, may be infused with synthetic scents containing harmful substances. These synthetic fragrances can pose health risks, causing respiratory irritation, allergies, and other adverse effects, making them far more concerning than just the choice of paraffin wax.
Say goodbye to those toxic candles for good! Your home should be a haven, not a fume-filled zone courtesy of basic soy candles.
And it’s time to clear the air: those soy candles might promise a "Tropical Paradise" scent, but what they don't tell you is that it's infused with synthetic fragrances, namely chemicals designed to enhance the scent.
Ever wondered why that sweet-smelling fragrance might not be as innocent as it seems? It’s time to learn the dangers of synthetic fragrances and unveil the hidden risks they pose to your health.
Synthetic fragrances, commonly found in various personal care products and scented items, are concoctions of artificial chemicals designed to mimic natural scents. While they might make your surroundings smell like a flower-filled garden or a tropical paradise, the reality is not so rosy.
One major culprit lurking in these synthetic scents is phthalates. These are chemicals added to enhance the longevity and staying power of fragrances. However, they have been linked to a plethora of health issues, including disruptions to the endocrine system, reproductive problems, and even potential developmental concerns in children.
The concerning part? Phthalates often go incognito on ingredient lists, labeled as part of the mysterious "fragrance" formulation, leaving consumers unaware of what they're truly exposed to.
But what about fragrances that boast being phthalate-free, you ask? While removing phthalates is a step in the right direction, it doesn't mean the scent is entirely harmless. Many synthetic fragrances still contain a cocktail of other questionable chemicals, such as benzene derivatives, aldehydes, and even potential allergens.
By the way, many of these ingredients are listed as toxic substances by the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry (ATSDR).
So inhaling synthetic scents can lead to respiratory irritation, allergies, and even asthma.
And it can cause even more harm than paraffin candles...
