Dip's guide to synthetic fragrance: Chemicals aren’t the problem but a 2D understanding of sustainability IS...
On the flip side, natural fragrances are not sustainable by default. Despite their eco-friendly reputation, natural fragrances are made by extracting the scent from plants and animals, and that biomass has to come from somewhere. Cultivating these scents can lead to overharvested farmlands, deforestation, and pesticide use, among other concerns. The green beauty industry loves phrases like “chemical free”, “no toxins”, but those can get a little greenwashy at the surface level. Chemicals aren’t the problem; a 2D understanding of sustainability is.
