CHAMPIONS OF SOLVENT-FREE

At Enviroscent we have worked hard to remove solvents from our products. Solvents are broadly used in the fragrance industry. Chances are if you're buying a plug-in or a fragrance oil or gel, you are buying a fragrance that is more 50% solvent.

These companies use solvents for two reasons - to help make liquid fragrance from a solid material and to help push the fragrances out of their product and into the air.

Enviroscent's patented, natural technology has completely eliminated the need for solvents to push fragrance into the air. Starch (like what we eat) on the surface of our products works like a pace car to make sure fragrance oils don't diffuse too fast and intensely. Then silica (the mineral derived from sand) works its magic as a natural drying agent that absorbs water vapor from the air. Since water and oil don't mix. Water prevails and pushes the fragrance oil out of our paper naturally without the use of solvents.


WHAT'S WRONG WITH SOLVENTS?

We don't like solvents for three reasons:



1 - SOLVENTS HAVE HEALTH & SAFETY ISSUES

Water is a solvent - we're obviously not against water. Alcohol is a solvent, and we're certainly not against alcohol - used responsibly. It's the harmful chemical solvents we are suspicious of - many are flammable, release volatile organic compounds in the air, can cause respiratory problems or neurological issues, and are known carcinogens. We deliver pure, long- lasting fragrance without the use of chemical solvents.


2 - AT BEST, SOLVENTS ARE WORTHLESS FILLERS

Solvents are basically ways of diluting your fragrance. Most likely, if you're buying a fragrance product, you're buying a little bit of fragrance and a lot of solvent filler. In a liquid reed diffuser, a good rule of thumb is that more than 50% of the beautiful liquid you see in the vase is a solvent. At Enviroscent, we use pure, untainted fragrance - that is strong and beautiful, without the use of fillers.


3 - SOLVENTS HAVE AN OFF-ODOR

Chemical solvents come with an unpleasant off-odor. As a result, most aircare fragrances have to be designed to mask solvent odors, which is not easy given solvent is usually more than 50% of the liquid. That's why fragrance artists love working with Enviroscent - we offer a clean canvas that allows them to express their art in a more vivid way, resulting in a more authentic fragrance experience.
