Following a rigorous NATURAL, regimen calls for a few simple swaps, like vegan food, organic makeup and beauty products, and so on. However, there is one particular area in which most people struggle: eco-friendly perfumes.
Most of us believe that ‘perfumes are all about smelling good and have nothing to do with good ingredients, toxic-free chemicals, or being natural.‘ However, we at GoodGuilt understand the sense of guilt that comes with smelling wonderful, but with fragrances that include toxic ingredients and chemicals that can negatively impact the planet. So here, we’ve listed down the best eco-friendly perfume brands in the market that are all about being planet-safe and guilt-free!
