Vitamin C Serum Decoded Part 2: Should Vitamin C Serum Have a Citrus Smell or Fragrance?


The answer is No. It’s a misconception that Vitamin C Serums should have any fragrance, citrus or otherwise.

Pure Vitamin C is odorless, so any Vitamin C Serum you purchase that does have a citrus or other heavy fragrance means that fragrance is an additive.

Fragrance additives are synthetic chemical components that can harm your skin.  Introducing artificial chemicals to your skin can clog pores, irritate sensitive skin, cause redness and result in breakouts.

Synthetic fragrances often include one of the following: Allergens, Phthalates, or Neurotoxins.

Allergens – Fragrances are considered to be among the top 5 known allergens, and are known to both cause and trigger asthma attacks.

Phthalates are chemicals that are linked to hormone disruptions. and since what you put on your skin is absorbed into your body, you do not want phthalates in your skincare products.

Neurotoxins: certain synthetic fragrance chemicals can be toxic to the brain

Sano Naturals Vitamin C Serum is 98% Natural, and made with organically derived components.  There is absolutely no added fragrance because what you put onto your face should be as natural as possible for the best, and healthiest, results.
