Fragrance Free Fragrance: State of Change x ClearForMe

Fragrance Free Fragrance: State of Change x ClearForMe

We like to think of State of Change as the no-makeup makeup, of fragrance. We take a clean, minimalist approach to our products and you won’t find the word “fragrance” or “parfum” on any State of Change ingredient lists.  This is because we list out all of the individual fragrance and base ingredients by name. If you’ve been avoiding the word fragrance, now is the time to get back into perfume. 

And to make this even easier for you, in case you don't know what plukenetia volubilis seed oil is, we are here to help. State of Change has partnered with ClearForMe to make it easy to learn more about each product, with Clickable Ingredients. Check it out using the steps below!

*What is an EWG Score?

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) assigns a hazard score to common fragrance and cosmetic ingredients based on known and suspected hazards, skin absorbency. The hazards are divided into 17 categories including, cancer, reproductive/developmental toxicity, allergies, persistence/bioaccumulation, etc. The lower the score, the better. A score of 1 or 2 indicates a low hazard level.

Ingredients with Purpose

Our goal is not to overcomplicate fragrance; our goal is to provide transparency and move away from the antiquated trade secrets and secrecy of the large fragrance houses. Understanding the purpose of each ingredient gives you insight into why we chose to put it in a product. ClearForMe lists all purposes for an ingredient, but based on formula type and quantity only certain purposes may be relevant. Let’s take a look at a couple examples of ClearForMe definitions and the purpose for the ingredient in State of Change products. 

To us, ingredient transparency is not a trend, it’s a commitment to you, our customers, to provide information about what goes on your body. When you know what is in products you can make the best decisions for yourself.
