OUR INGREDIENTS FROM LMR, Laboratoire Monique Remy
We chose to work with this producer of natural extracts, a leading name in natural ingredients for perfumery, flavours, cosmetics and aromatherapy. They provide us with ingredients that are 100% natural, traceable and responsibly sourced.
This means that the neroli, pink peppercorn, blackcurrant bud, orange blossom and jasmine found in our formula meet strict requirements concerning their naturalness, quality and respect for the environment.
At LMR, sustainable development isn't a philosophy or a theory. It isn't a passing fashion either; sustainable development is a daily commitment that underpins all their actions.
Neroli extract: a star ingredient with relaxing properties!
IFF SCIENCE OF WELLNESS™: in this programme, IFF holistically integrates consumer perceptions, neuroscience and artificial intelligence to reveal the emotional impact of ingredients and fragrances. Thanks to this, IFF selected the best ingredients associated with relaxation to create Rochas Girl. Neroli extract activates the areas of the brain associated with the state of peace and calm that is relaxation*. That is why we chose this ingredient to give our fragrance its FEEL-GOOD spirit.
*Study conducted in 2020 by IFF on a panel of 20 people aged 18 to 45 years old.
A VEGAN concentrate
No animal-derived ingredients are used in our concentrate or the fragrance.
A concentrate 97.5% produced using green chemistry
This percentage of green chemistry shows that our ingredients have been produced in an environmentally friendly way that adheres to the 12 principles of green chemistry.
The 12 eco-friendly principles of green chemistry, or “sustainable chemistry”, were actually declared some 30 years ago. To create according to green chemistry principles means committing to minimise waste when creating molecules, reusing materials as much as possible, creating and using non-toxic substances, using renewable raw materials wherever possible, etc.
FREE FROM colourings, stabilisers and UV filters
Colourings, stabilisers and UV filters are normally an integral part of a classic fragrance formula. They are used to colour the juice of a fragrance and to preserve this colour over time.
For Girl, we chose not to colour the formula and to use no chemical additives (colourings, stabilisers or UV filters). This means that our fragrance has a natural colour determined by its ingredients. Its colour may vary slightly over time, but rest assured this phenomenon is completely normal. It does not impact the scent and all fragrances on the market are affected by this unless the formula is protected by chemical additives like colourings, stabilisers and UV filters.
FREE FROM BHT and benzyl salicylate
We also chose to exclude controversial ingredients suspected of being endocrine disruptors to enhance the formula’s FEEL-GOOD aspect.
ONLY seven allergens
Allergens are naturally found in natural and synthetic ingredients. For Girl, we decided to limit their use and cut them down to just seven.
Is it possible to have a natural fragrance that doesn't contain allergens?
It is impossible to have a natural fragrance that doesn't contain allergens. To try to get the number closer to zero, the fragrance must contain mainly synthetic ingredients.
Contrary to what you might think, most allergens come from natural ingredients.
