Going fragrance-free can change your life

Going fragrance-free can change your life

This may sound dramatic, but yes, fragrance-free products can be life-altering if you have fragrance sensitivities or allergies. Truly fragrance-free hair care and skincare products that also deliver exceptional hair and skin benefits can be hard to come by, but dermatologist-developed SEEN is that magical unicorn for many of our customers. Consider these rave reviews…

“I have switched to SEEN's products after realizing that my very painfully itchy scalp was due to the hair products I was using. I tried probably 5 different brands of fragrance free, skin-friendly products and all were a huge compromise to the conventional products I'd been using. Until I found SEEN. It's not just as a good as conventional products, it’s better. My hair looks better than it ever has before. I have curly, thin hair that I blow out straight. With SEEN's products, it has volume, stays straight, and lasts days! And my scalp is in the best condition it has ever been in, and that includes after using steroids the doctor prescribed.” –Katlin

“Finally a salon grade, fragrance free hair care line! I have over 200 allergens and atopic dermatitis so this line has changed my life for the better. Prior to using SEEN I was traveling to the Netherlands to buy fragrance free hair products because there only existed one product in the U.S. that dried out my curly hair and left my scalp unbalanced. SEEN’s fragrance free line leaves my curls hydrated supple and is gentle to my color treated hair. Most importantly my skin and scalp don’t react to the product, it’s BLESSING!” –Brittany S.

“I have been using SEEN for almost 2 years! It is the only shampoo/conditioner I will buy! I suffer from eczema and rosacea so I just love the fragrance free option! I haven't had any breakouts along my hairline or on my scalp since using it. It lathers great and makes my hair so soft and shiny!” –Megan C.

“The consistency and way it lathers (shampoo) and conditions are perfect for my curly hair. The fragrance free aspect is a must and the products don’t irritate my scalp or skin. Thanks for your creations!” –Amy E.

"I love this body wash! It's so hard to find a body wash that's truly fragrance free and moisturizing. It's my new favorite! I will always use this!" –Kasi C.

Potential fragrance-related skin issues
Many of our customers turn to SEEN’s fragrance-free products because of skin and scalp itch, as well as the triggering effects that scent can have on certain skin conditions. Going fragrance-free can also help keep sensitive skin calm and comfortable—and many of our products are formulated with naturally-derived bisabolol for extra skin-soothing benefits. For the record, all of SEEN’s fragrance-free products have received the National Eczema Association’s Seal of Acceptance™, which means they have been deemed acceptable for eczema-prone skin.

The effects of fragrance beyond the skin
Fragranced products can do more than affect the skin, especially in people with heightened sensitivity or allergies. Fragrance can trigger an allergy, migraine, or asthma flare up as well as a runny nose, congestion, or watery eyes.

It’s important to note that there’s a big difference between truly fragrance-free products and “unscented” products. The latter are often formulated with fragrance to mask natural ingredient odors and create a “fragrance-free” olfactory illusion.

SEEN’s fragrance-free products offer all of the benefits of luxury hair care (and skincare!) with none of the drawbacks. Beyond being truly fragrance-free, all of our products are also non-comedogenic (so they won’t clog pores) and non-irritating. This means you can enjoy stronger, smoother, healthier hair without worrying about aggravating your skin sensitivity or potentially causing breakouts.
