It’s a sad fact that there is a large number of people who can’t use scented products, or don’t feel comfortable using scented products that most likely contain ingredients with a high toxicity level. It always stinks to have a skin condition like eczema or psoriasis and find you can’t use your favourite scented lotion. Or worse, you suddenly started entering sneeze city by spraying on what once was your favourite perfume. I’m personally convinced that it contributed to my photodermatitis on top of everything else. It’s always hard to shuffle through what is truly fragrance-free, and whats basically claiming it is, and putting in a cheap ingredient to make it smell like it is more chemical then scented ingredients. So hopefully, whether your sneezy, itchy, acne prone, or just prefer not to smell, I hope this list will be helpful in the end.

All Products Listed are Non-Animal Tested and Vegan Friendly 

Desert Essence Shampoo and Conditioner: $4.67/$5.09

Purchased: Vitacost.com

Environmental Working Group Database Rating: 2/3

Personal Opinion: Gentle not just for those with allergy’s and skin conditioners but also gentle enough for virgin or damaged hair. The conditioner contains organic jojoba oil, sunflower oil, and green tea. The shampoo itself is organic. Majority of Desert Essence Products (Including the fragrance free) is gluten-free, paraben-free, and free from synthetic dyes.

The Honest Company Laundry Detergent: $12:95

Purchased: https://www.honest.com/

Enviremental Working Group Database Rating: Not Listed

Personal Opinion: Have not been reactive after using this product to wash my cloths, towels, and pillow cases. It uses coconut-based cleansers instead of the traditional ingredients. I also highly recommend the dyer cloths, and laundry pods. Using all them together has made a massive difference to my washes. In general, I’ve had a fondness for their products since the Autumn.

Hugo Naturals Duel Action Deodorant Stick Unscented: $5.79

Purchased: Vitacost.com

Enviromental Working Group Database Rating: 1

Personal Opinion: Though fragrance free, I still smell hint of tea tree oil. I also wouldn’t recommend purchasing this online. I felt like I didn’t get a whole deodorant stick. It felt like there was only half of what a normal deodorant would have.

Out of Africa Shea Butter Body Oil in Unscented: $16.39

Purchased: Vitacost.com

Enviromental Working Group Database Rating: 0

Personal Opinion: Considering oil goes a long way with a small amount, and this product had 266ml, I ran out of this really fast. Within two months. Why? I fell inlove and used it everywhere everyday. Body, scalp, hair, face. Etc. There are so many amazing oils in here. Like sweet almond, avocado, olive, and contains vitamins A, E, and F. The cheapest I’ve found this product is on iHerb.com. Just so you are aware.

The Honest Company Face & Body Lotion: $9.95

Purchased: https://www.honest.com/

Enviromental Working Group Database Rating: 1

Personal Opinion: I have to say I’m slightly conflicted on this product. There are many bonus’s to the product. Multifunctional, moisturizing, vegan, and lightweight. But upon using it I did notice a scent to it that was both subtle and hard to determine. It smelled sweet-ish. But not candy sweet. I would say it’s good. It has not irritated my skin. But I would proceed with caution.

North Coast Organics Naked Deodorant:  $8.99

Purchased: http://north-coast-organics.com/

Enviromental Working Group Database Rating: Brand Not Listed

Personal Opinion: I unfortunately cannot give a full review on this product. I had an allergic reaction to it. But what I can tell you is that it only contains four ingredients, certified organic, and the Naked one is completely unscented, and safe for regular use since it does not contain any aluminum, or parabens.Very simplistic. But considering how common the ingredients are, you could possibly already make it if you already have them lingering in your beauty box or kitchen.


Desert Essence Organics Body Wash Fragrance-Free: $5.49

Purchased: http://www.vitacost.com/

Environmental Working Group Database Rating: 3

Personal Opinion:No matter what formula I use, I always find any body wash to be slightly drying. I just always make sure to use a moisturiser while my skin is still wet getting out of the show so it adsorbs easier. Either that or oil. Oil is my personal preference for the night time. If you want a decent light weight moisturiser that’s not coconut oil or avocado, try the Desert Essence jojoba oil. Jojoba is lighter, and thinner consistency and the one oil that’s closest to the oil that our skin naturally produces. Plus its gentle and light enough to use on frizzy hair.


Desert Essence Organics Pure Hand and Body Lotion Unscented: $5.06

Purchased: http://www.vitacost.com/

Enviromental Working Group Database Rating: 2

Personal Opinion: Non-Greasy. Lovely moisturising formula. Haven’t reacted once.

Dr. Bronner’s Organic Pure Castile Liquid Soap Baby Mild Unscented:  $6.09

Purchased: Target

Environmental Working Group Database Rating: 1

Personal Opinion: House Staple. This is a multifunctional product is used for multiple things. Washing dishes, laundry, body wash, and even shampoo. Certified fair trade ingredients make it a safe product for both adults and young ones. In the long run, a multi-purpose product like this can save money in the long run.

If there was one or two particular brands I would recommend, I would say both The Honest Company and Desert Essence. I found that both are consistent in terms of performance and consideration for the public, and price. So far, through out the two brands, I have not seen anything over prices for the performance and no reactions. But to be safe, please read the ingredients listings thoroughly and patch test before doing so. Both of Desert Essence and The Honest Company have a range of products for hair, and body.
