Our Ingredient FAQ

What type of ingredients do you use in your products?

We purchase only high quality, pure ingredients (and organic whenever possible) to give you the best finished product possible. We only purchase from our trusted suppliers & always check how each ingredient is sourced prior to purchasing.

What are Essential Oils?

We only use 100% pure, high quality essential oils. Each batch of oils is tested on chemical constituents with GC-MS testing. Essential oils are extracted from plants - from roots, seeds, flowers, bark - they are concentrated & highly potent. We use essential oils in our business for scent, but also to help with a variety of conditions. Essential oils can be used for aromatic and therapeutic benefits.

What are Clean Scents?

Our standards for our business are high, and exclude many materials that other suppliers’ use in their products. You may be familiar with phthalates, but we also exclude materials with similar health concerns, including those on California’s Prop 65 list, because materials known to be carcinogens in California aren’t safer anywhere else!


There are five main “hazard groups” that we do not allow to be in our products.

Carcinogens: These are materials known or thought to cause cancer. 

Mutagens: Materials that change the DNA of a cell, harming the cell and causing diseases like cancer. 

Reproductive toxins: Toxins that adversely affect reproductive organs and increase the risk of birth defects. 

Organ toxins: These are toxins that can cause adverse effects or disease within specific bodily organs. 

Acute toxins: Toxins that can cause adverse effects from a single exposure. Generally, this would be accidental exposure like spillage or ingestion.
