Did you know that natural and synthetic raw materials are classified the same way? When it comes to mixtures, air fresheners, and essential oils, they all need to be labeled in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.
The classification of these products is based on the raw materials used, whether they are natural or synthetic. Both types of raw materials undergo rigorous testing to ensure their impact on human health, life, and the environment. Each raw material is then classified accordingly.
You might be surprised to learn that even natural raw materials, like essential oils, are highly concentrated natural extracts. The concentrations of raw materials listed in the law are incredibly high. This means that, in general, there is no true natural fragrance oil that doesn't have any pictogram.
However, here's where things get interesting. Many customers actively seek out products without pictograms because they believe that these products are "natural". And this is where some companies try to hide the true characteristics of their products from the consumer.
I believe in transparency and providing accurate information about our products. We want our customers to make informed choices and understand the true nature of what they're purchasing. That's why we label our products according to regulations and provide clear and concise information about the ingredients used.
So the next time you come across a product claiming to be "natural" without any pictograms, remember that true transparency lies in understanding the regulations and ensuring that all products are labeled accordingly. Let's empower consumers with knowledge and make informed decisions together!
