I began paying attention to the toxins in my products when I had trouble getting pregnant in 2021. I've tuned into not just the food I put into my mouth but all the chemicals I use in our home and the products I put on my body.

(To note, I thankfully gave birth to our daughter in 2022, so perhaps cutting products with sketchy chemicals and toxins helped!)

When I started my fertility journey I had no idea that something as wonderful smelling as perfume could be harmful to my body, overall health, and reproductive system.

What did I learn? Not all perfumes are equal—that's an understatement! 

I've officially switched to phthalate-free perfumesand want you to, too!


What the heck are phthalates?

Phthalates are a common chemical ingredient used in manufacturing cheap fragrance oils. They help the fragrance extend its aromatic strength.

Without getting too scientific, phthalates are in many scented products (so you should look out for them in candles, lotions, cosmetics, and more!).

Phthalates belong to a group of endocrine disruptors that affect your hormonal balance and can cause reproductive and fertility issues, among many other health problems.

(Read more on the health detriments of phthalates here.)

How to identify phthalates?

It is almost impossible to identify phthalates as an ingredient in a product because (gasp!) there is no law they must be on the product's ingredient list. Usually, phthalates are part of the fragrance ingredients listed simply as "fragrance."

As a result, the only way to ensure that the item is phthalate-free is by choosing a product that promises it is phthalate-free on its packaging, branding, or website.

Below, I rounded up seven of my favorite phthalate-free perfumes.

I hope this round-up helps you consider refreshing your signature scent with one you know doesn't include unnecessary harmful chemicals that can mess with your health.
