Perfume allergy

A number of people suffer from allergies, and perfume is the most common cause of allergies to cosmetics.

A perfume consists of many different fragrances, which can either be:

  • direct extracts from plants

  • synthetically manufactured, but identical to natural products

  • synthetically manufactured, with no natural equivalents.

Some fragrances are considered to be more likely than others to provoke allergic reactions. Consequently, legislation demands that the 26 most allergenic fragrances must be stated on all cosmetics if their concentration exceeds 0.001 % in cosmetics which remain on the body, and 0.01% in cosmetics that are washed off immediately after application.

With the exception of two products, Matas's own products are not required to declare the 26 substances, while at the same time Matas offers the consumers Denmark's widest range of completely perfume-free variants.

The 26 fragrances which must be declared are:
