  • Fragrance Free

    Fragrance-Free means that the odor removal ingredients used in this product do not contain added natural or synthetic fragrances or scents which can contain hazardous ingredients like phthalates.

    Fragrances are considered to be among the top five known allergens and are known to both cause and trigger asthma attacks.

    According to the EU's Scientific Committee on Cosmetic Products and Non-food Products, 1 in every 50 people may suffer immune system damage from fragrances and become sensitized. Unfortunately, once a person becomes sensitized to an ingredient, this condition can last for a lifetime, with subsequent exposures causing allergic reactions.

  • Nitrate Free

    Nitrate (NO3-) Free means that the odor removal ingredients used in this product do not contain any form of nitrates which can result in pollution. In freshwater or estuarine systems close to land, high levels of nitrate can potentially cause the death of fish. While it is much less toxic than ammonia, levels over 30 ppm of nitrate can inhibit growth, impair the immune system, and cause stress in some aquatic species.

  • Paraben Free

    Paraben-Free means that the odor removal ingredients used in this product do not contain any type of parabens like methylparaben, propylparaben and butylparaben which are widely used as preservatives by the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.

    Parabens are used primarily for their bactericidal and fungicidal properties. They can be found in shampoos, moisturizers, shaving gels, personal lubricants, topical pharmaceuticals, spray tanning solution, makeup, and toothpaste. They are also used as food additives.

    Parabens are controversial because they have been found in breast cancer tumors. They have also displayed the ability to slightly mimic estrogen (a hormone known to play a role in the development of breast cancer). However, no effective direct links between parabens and cancer have been established.

  • Pesticide Free

    Pesticide-Free means that the odor removal ingredients used in this product do not contain synthetic pesticides such as insecticides, herbicides, fungicides or rodenticides.

    A pesticide is a chemical or biological agent that deters, incapacitates, kills, or otherwise discourages pests. Target pests can include insects, plant pathogens, weeds, mollusks, birds, mammals, fish, nematodes (roundworms), and microbes that destroy property, cause nuisance, spread disease, or are disease vectors.

    Although pesticides have benefits, some also have drawbacks, such as potential toxicity to humans, other desired species, and the environment. According to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, 9 of the 12 most dangerous and persistent organic chemicals are pesticides.

  • Petroleum Free

    Petroleum-Free means that none of the odor removal ingredients used in this product are derived from petroleum or petrochemicals.

    The use of petroleum in beauty products is more widespread than you might think. It goes by names such as mineral oil, paraffin wax, petrolatum, and propylene glycol. Many fragrances are also petroleum-derived.

    Here are a few reasons to avoid them.

    1. It disrupts the way the body naturally detoxifies by not allowing the skin to breathe.

    2. It slows the rate at which cells are renewed, thereby damaging collagen, connective tissue, and elastin - all of which contribute to the way skin looks and feels.

    3. It results in skin that ages prematurely.

  • PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) Free

    PVC-Free means that the odor removal ingredients used in this product doesn’t contain poly vinyl chloride, the third-most widely produced polymer. PVC is made softer and more flexible by adding plasticizers, the most widely used being phthalates. In this form, it is used in plumbing, electrical cable insulation, inflatable products, and many applications.

    Vinyl products are pervasive including toys, car interiors, shower curtains, and flooring—and initially release chemical gases such as phthalates into the air. Some studies indicate that this outgassing of toxic additives may contribute to health complications. The burning of PVC also produces dioxin, one of the most toxic chemicals known to mankind.
