Some fragrance ingredients are not perfuming agents themselves, but actually, work to enhance the performance of perfuming agents. For example, diethyl phthalate or DEP is widely used in cosmetic fragrances as a cheap and versatile way to make scent linger. DEP is suspected of interfering with hormone function, such as endocrine disruption, causing reproductive and developmental problems amongst other health effects. Fragrance recipes are considered trade secrets, so manufacturers are not required to disclose fragrance chemicals in the list of ingredients.
There is no room for phthalates in the Rocky world; we don’t need nasty chemicals to enhance our wonderful natural products. Our policy is if you can’t be sure these chemicals are safe, then why use them.
