Eco Perfume List and Chart
Organic and eco friendly perfume list
1.) "Ajne" employs the use of many distillation methods for their perfumes including steam, hydro, absolute extraction of the flower, absolute extraction of the seed, or CO2 distillation of the wood. The president and founder of AJNE is a certified Master Essential Oil Therapist and Herbalist. Ajne is one of the few perfume companies in the world to completely immerse themselves in organic farming at every level, whereas they grow, distill and blend their own plant oils from their own organic farm. They grow seven (7) flowers, plants or spices organically, and when needed to go outside their own farm, they seek other natural material from other sustainable growers. They even have a line of pet perfumes called "furfumes." All their perfume products are either in recycled glass containers or aluminum.
2.) "Tsi-La" specializes in holistic aromatherapy and botanicals by using active plant botanicals, organic fruits, and herbs in their perfumes infused with phytonutrients. Their organic list includes: organic jojoba oil; organic apricot oil; and the extracts from blueberries, goji berries, persimmon, and rooibos are also from organic sources. The company uses organic sugar cane alcohol for the perfume base, which is naturally GMO free (not genetically modified food). Tsi~La pronounced "chee-la" has achieved the status and recognition from USDA as being a company that uses certified organic ingredients as well as receiving The Green America Business Seal of Approval for environmental business practices (formerly called Co-op America). They also have been approved for the Leaping Bunny program. The company has one perfume certified by the Natural Products Association, which is MISAKI organic eau de parfum.
DISCLAIMER: Tsi-La still uses Sandalwood, which is not an ecologically conscience decision, however perhaps they are just using up what they have left. That is uncertain, but in general they are still one of the better companies.
3.) The company "A Perfume Organic" hand-blends their perfumes from the finest 100% organic ingredients and are also free of alcohol. The company has been USDA certified organic by an outside 3rd party. What's really great about this company is their commitment to an eco friendly world not only through what goes into the bottles of perfume, but also how it is packaged and how they run their company. A Perfume Organic has minimal packaging that is recyclable. All their marketing materials are printed on recycled paper with vegetable inks and the lab and headquarters proudly run on green energy. The company is a member of the Perfume Guild for natural perfumers and also certified by PETA.
Tallulah Jane perfumes have said that they "never use extracts from plants and trees that are considered unsustainable." Their products are blended with botanical essences, resins and balsams and organic and wild crafted oils are mixed together in certified organic grape alcohol or jojoba, then hand poured in small batches. The perfumer, Eleanor Jane had worked in the wellness industry as a certified health instructor where she worked with patients who needed lifestyle modifications. After learning about the dangers in the beauty industry, she realized it was even harder for sick people to use those products and thus began her journey to deliver an alternative product for people with compromised health situations. They have been approved under the Leaping Bunny Program. Although Tallulah Jane hasn't received any type of eco or organic designations or certifications as of this writing, they are conscience of using sustainable products and refusing to use or test on animals and that's a very good start.
