Ditch the chemicals. Love natural.
Posted by Nicola Elliott
We did because research has told us that the average woman puts 515 synthetic chemicals on her body everyday*.
In my book, that's too high. I'm a realist, and I certainly don't live a staunch green lifestyle, but choosing natural is pretty important to me, which is why at NEOM we only use natural, naturally derived and where possible organic ingredients. NO synthetic fragrances, parabens, PEG's, GMO's, SLS, phthalates, no mineral oil-based ingredients, artificial colours and no crude oil derived waxes such as paraffin wax.
The latest launch - our Natural Wellbeing Fragrance is the newest addition to our natural NEOM family - closely following our natural skincare collection (think face jelly washes and amazing face oils, with the likes of prickly pear extract and sprinkles of things like natural hyaluronic acid, plus blends of essential oils like peppermint and lavender).
We worked so hard to make these natural which was really tricky. Did you know that in 2017, there were just 11 fragrances classified as being 'natural' according to Michael Edwards Fragrances of the World, and only 5 were listed in 2018 (out of 2345 launches). Today, roughly two-thirds of all fragrances used in perfumes and other scented products are made in the lab, not by Mother Nature.
The NEW Natural Wellbeing Fragrances are full of natural goodness (in fact they're made from 99.9% naturally derived ingredients) and packed with essential oils which not only smell amazing but really work hard to help you to boost your wellbeing.
Ylang ylang, Vertivert & Tonka Bean
Highly floral, powerful and sweet ylang ylang is uplifting and also used to ease tension and help you feel calm. Blended with dark, spicy and earthy vetivert (a brilliant oil to use when you feel under pressure) and a pinch of sweet, fragrant tonka bean to help you prepare to relax and unwind.
Grapefruit, Lemon & Rosemary
A seriously punchy, crisp, fresh dose of grapefruit which helps combat tiredness (cue recovering from a late night). Lemon - that helps clear and invigorate the mind, & a touch of rosemary to give it all the potent and warming vibes to help you feel revived. Just spritz and kick ass.
Jasmine, Bergamot & Orange Peel
Jasmine, a heady warming oil taken from the petals when they are steam distilled. Powerfully uplifting as well as being deeply relaxing in one, meaning it's great to help relieve tension. With a little bergamot which is a sweet and fruity scent, that helps balance mood, and orange peel (which is a sweet scent) to help lift emotions. You have a real heart warmer of a fragrance.
