Why You Should Promote Fragrance-Free Skincare

As an esthetician, you play a critical role in helping your clients achieve their best skin. From providing advice on products and treatments to recommending skincare routines, you are a trusted advisor in the world of beauty. Promoting the best products for your clients, including fragrance-free skincare, is essential in that role. Whether natural or synthetic, fragrance doesn’t belong in skincare products. It’s easy for clients to get drawn into a product that advertises a wonderful scent as a perk, but fragrance is an unnecessary additive we see all too often that has proven adverse effects on the skin. 

Fragrances have a sensitizing effect on the skin, which can exacerbate existing skincare concerns and cause inflammation, dryness, and many other bothersome side effects like contact dermatitis or eczema that your client’s skin is better off without. In fact, fragrances can also trigger allergic reactions and even asthma. This is particularly important for people with sensitive skin or conditions such as rosacea or eczema, who may be particularly susceptible to skin irritation. Regardless of your individual client’s skin situation, promoting fragrance-free skincare to all is a great way to help your clients reach their skincare goals.

In skin care, fragrance-free products are those that do not contain any unnecessary, volatile fragrance ingredients of any variety (essential oils included). According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, “Fragrance-free means that fragrance materials or masking scents are not used in the product.” Encouraging your clients to use unscented alternatives can help save them the hassle of managing fragrance-caused side effects while promoting better overall skin health. 

With so much attention recently drawn to the risk of fragranced skincare products, companies are beginning to release unscented or “clean” alternatives that offer the same benefits without the added fragrance. Fragrance-free skincare products such as those found in our Oasis Skin by PowerPeel® line are more straightforward and gentler on the skin, making them an excellent choice for all skin types. They don’t contain any harsh chemicals or artificial ingredients that could strip the skin of its natural oils and disrupt its delicate pH balance making them an ideal choice for clients looking to maintain healthy, radiant skin.

Focusing on natural, gentle, and skin-friendly products demonstrates a commitment to your client’s well-being and health. This can help build trust and loyalty and encourage repeat business. So, the next time you meet with a client, send them a positive message about your approach to beauty and their personal wellness by offering them fragrance-free skincare products.
