The Value of All-Natural and Fragrance-Free Products ‘
You have been gifted one body, and you have the power to do with it, whatever you want. You can love it, nurture it, protect it, and keep it safe. Contrarily, you can choose to carelessly and irreversibly damage it. The depth of knowledge you have about the body you have been blessed with; its needs, wants, desires, and dislikes determine how well you will take care of it.
When you seek knowledge and apply the knowledge obtained, you are capable and well equipped enough to give your body the best care possible.
Although some dangers are unforeseeable and unavoidable, there are many horrible things you can avoid when you choose to be intentional about how you take care of yourself- mind, body, and soul.
Life can be overwhelming, leaving us little time to take good enough care of our mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. It takes a conscious and present mind to analyze everything that comes into their life and decide if it can stay or if it has to leave.
The thoughts we welcome, the food we eat, the places we go, and the people we interact with heavily influence our health and wellness. So can the products we choose to use to take care of our bodies.
The value of natural skincare
When it comes to skincare, it is easy to follow the masses and choose the most popular products off the shelves. If you are in a rush, you can impulsively pick up the products with the prettiest labels and be on your way. If we would all take a minute or two to read the labels on the products we purchase, we would do ourselves a world of good and save ourselves a countless number of issues in the future.
There are many skincare products on the market lately, and the numbers keep rising daily. With so many promises and testimonies, it is easy to find yourself hopping from one product to another with very little care and guidance. Some of these pretty-looking products may be packed with chemicals and ingredients which may be harmful to you or your skin type.

The hidden secrets of fragrances
Ever scanned through the labels of your face cream, hair wash, or body lotion? What about your favorite body scrub that smells like berries or fruit cocktails. Looking closely, you will notice that some products indicate in the ingredient list that there is fragrance included in the product. They do not usually disclose which products they have included in the said fragrance.
Toxic chemicals in fragrance formulas
Initially, fragrance houses hid their secret formulas derived from flowers and oils by classifying them all under fragrance. With time, the term fragrance turned into a legal way to hide a cocktail of more than a hundred harmful synthetic chemicals from users' knowledge.
This ability to conceal chemicals happened because fragrances are considered to be trade secrets.
Now, millions of people are inhaling, ingesting, and absorbing over 3000 chemicals daily under the guise of fragrance. Since manufacturers continue to choose to keep the ingredients in their fragrance undisclosed, the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) cannot fully regulate those products.
The health risks associated with chemicals
Some highly toxic chemicals like phthalates, galaxolide, tonalide, and ethylene brassylate, can be used either as fragrances or to help fragrances last longer. Phthalates are known to increase the risk of asthma and infertility in men and breast cancer in women.
Across multiple research studies, chemicals used to make fragrances have been classified as allergens, hormone disruptors, asthma triggers, neurotoxins & carcinogens.
Simply put, the great smell of your skin products may come at a life-threatening cost. As the saying goes, "Something's gotta give."
The use of synthetic chemicals as fragrance poses a dire risk to people with sensitive skin. Using such harmful products can cause adverse reactions, which in some cases may be irreversible. Other skin types can also suffer grave consequences from using synthetic fragrances. These repercussions may not manifest themselves until far off in the future when it is too late to do any damage control.
A Vegan solution to the fragrance challenge!
At Beautifully Graced, instead of toxic chemicals, we use alternative sources of fragrance- essential oils. We derive these all natural essential oils from plants. These may not have bold overwhelming scents like the dangerous chemicals do, but they are strong, characteristic, and healing to the body and soul. They help you feel united with the form of nature from which we derived them, and they do not pose any health risk now and in the long term.
We want you to live a healthy and happy life. A life that is free, knowledgeable, and protected from self-inflicted pain. Instead of hurting your body, we want to help you love and preserve it. We put love and care into the formulation of all our products. We aim to give you all natural, vegan, and fragrance-free products that have the power to heal and nurture your body.
While tackling skin issues and conditions, we also give your skin a well-deserved treat. Our products are suitable for all ages and skin types.
Choose to take good care of the body you have been gifted. Love every inch, bend, and curve of it, and it will love you back and serve you well for as long as you live.
