We employ both botanical and laboratory-made ingredients to perform particular functions in our formulations. The only Aesop products that contain synthetic fragrances are our Aromatique Room Sprays, personal fragrances, and Rejuvenate Intensive Body Balm.
The Fragrance (Parfum) component of our personal fragrance range and Aromatique Room Sprays contains a blend of essentials oils, botanical extracts and synthetic ingredients.
We utilise this blend of ingredients to achieve a fragrance that is more intense and complex, and of greater staying power, than could be formulated using essential oils alone.
All components of the fragrance blends that we have utilised have been carefully considered and evaluated for safety and efficacy. As with essential oils, we take careful note of the findings and recommendations as issued by the International Fragrance Association (IFRA), and ensure that the levels of all fragrance components, whether botanical or synthetic in origin, fall well below the limits recommended by IFRA and other worldwide regulatory agencies
