The 2022 Clean Beauty Awards is all about celebrating, rejoicing and honouring the brands taking beauty to the next level. It is no secret that mainstream fragrances are toxic. Multiple research studies have proven that the chemical used to make standard fragrances, antiperspirants and deodorants are inked to scary health risks. Packed full of allergens, hormone disruptors, asthma triggers, neurotoxins & carcinogens, you want to stay far away from those nasty products. The Clean Beauty Awards perfume and odour care entrants, however, are not just natural but also smell heavenly and do the trick of fighting odour.
Fragrance can be a beautiful thing when done right. The 2022 Clean Beauty Awards five finalists for the perfume category are worth gushing over. These products are delightfully and naturally scented for a perfume alternative you will love.
