Our Thoughts | Fragrances & Peace of Mind

A Sweet Savour

Historically, the fragrance industry has been a bit shy about transparency and safety.  Lack of disclosure regarding ingredients and the possible health risks of those ingredients was the norm.

Today, however, the landscape is quite different. Research has revealed the harmful properties of many traditional fragrances as well as inferior safety standards present in the industry.

What About Our Fragrances?

Here at Shiplap+Sage, we were determined to find fragrances that were clean - for our families and for yours.  We searched high and low, and we found a fragrance partner who has carefully tested over 600 fragrance revisions to eliminate the carcinogens, mutagens, reproductive toxins, and other hazard groups that are typically found in traditional fragrances.  

So They're Safer...But Do They Smell Good?

But wait!  There’s more!  We found that the fragrances from this partner also smell amazing! This is one of the most difficult parts of the entire process, since some of the toxic ingredients are also the ingredients that allow these fragrances to initially smell so good. (But can also cause headaches and other allergic reactions from chemical exposure.) 

Our Promise

Our goal is simple: we want our customers to enjoy our amazing candles and fragrance products, confident that they are safe for their families. Why? Because our families use these candles too.
