Today we play doctors
It's summer, the sun is here (or not)... We want to party and wear perfume! But did you know that the sun and perfume are not very good friends?
In this new article, we explain to you why you should be wary of alcohol, because yes, alcohol abuse is dangerous for your health .
ALCOHOL, THE BASIS!
Yes, alcohol is not water. You may have already had the opportunity to notice this, because in general, it evaporates very quickly!
Although it is the " number 1 " diluent used in perfumery, its use is not without consequences, especially when it is concentrated between 70 and 90% . It makes you think…
THE EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL (on the skin)
To avoid “depression” and limit the consequences of alcohol, Versatile helps you see things more clearly.No. 1: ALCOHOL ≠ SUN
As explained earlier, alcohol and the sun do not mix well . Unfortunately, this substance under the effect of UV rays can cause pigment spots and these are permanent. So there is no way to treat them. Moreover, certain essential oils can cause similar skin reactions, like bergamot for example.
No. 2: ALCOHOL ≠ DEHYDRATION
We knew that, but on the skin the effect observed is the same. Alcohol has drying and irritating properties. This will disrupt the protective barrier of the skin and sometimes, some redness may appear. So remember to moisturize your skin if this is the case.
No. 3: ALCOHOL ≠ TOXICITY
Here too, this is not new, but be aware that the alcohol used in cosmetics is not pure , denaturants are added to it to make it unsuitable for consumption. It is also these same denaturants which are a source of toxicity . Indeed, certain denaturing molecules would be considered endocrine disruptors and others are classified as CMR substances: carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic. Right away, alcohol makes us want it less, right?
ALCOHOL IS NOT A REQUIRED PASS
It is precisely for all these harmful aspects for the skin that Versatile decided to opt for an oil-based roll-on perfume. The moisturizing properties of sweet almond and wheat oil will preserve and protect the surface of your skin during your perfumed ritual.
Today more and more brands are launching alcohol-free perfumes which therefore allow you to circumvent the rule to be able to wear your perfume in the sun .
So, you can wear perfume and expose yourself to the sun without fearing the appearance of redness or pigmentation spots. This while having the assurance that your epidermis will be hydrated. Not bad is not it ?
The little extra: there is no smell of alcohol when applying.
