Â ETHICAL COMPLETE LIST OF PERFUME INGREDIENTS IN PERFUMESÂ (ECLIP)
For most people the only factor that determines their purchase a perfume is that they like the smell of it.
However more people every year ask to know what is in the perfumes they purchase in order to make their choice with ethical, ideological or health criterions.
For instance vegans do not want certain ingredients and so do allergic persons.
The laws make it compulsory on producers to inform the customers aboutÂ SOMEÂ ingredients of their products but ethics, more than law, should make every producer feel bound to inform his customers aboutÂ ALLÂ the ingredients he uses, without revealing his trade secrets of course.
REAL INFORMATION ABOUT INGREDIENTS USED IN PERFUMES DOES NOT EXIST.
Together with my perfumer friend Roberto Dario, who is also a chemist, we have made a complete Â list of all the products that can enter in the composition of perfumes.
We called it âEthical complete list of ingredients for perfumesâ. TheÂ Â ECLIPÂ list is âethicalâ because we consider that it is a moral duty from perfume producers to inform completely and truthfully perfume consumers.
We are sharing freely the ECLIP list withÂ the community of indieÂ perfumers to use itÂ as a standard declaration, because it is necessary that the profession regulates itself, not through an organism (that does not exist yet) but through the auto regulation of each and every one.
TheÂ ECLIP list should be divided in two parts;Â what I useÂ andÂ what I do not useÂ so that no doubt can subsist in the mind ofÂ customers about the ingredients of their perfumes.
TheÂ ECLIP list of my ingredients is already published on my sitÂ showing how it is working.
Fragrantica has published my interviewÂ about this move for consumers and Indie perfumers.
