Solid perfumes: the new eco-friendly fragrance concept A guide to the most innovative and sustainably formulated products of the range

Thinking of a non-liquid perfume, to spread rather than to spray is really difficult; yet, in ancient times, the perfume was born solid and only with time evolved in the form in which we know it today. Among the first famous women to use this type of fragrance, the Egyptian queens Cleopatra and Nefertiti. It was something very different from modern fragrances, ointments in the form of wax enriched with natural extracts that, in addition to moisturizing the skin, left it delicately scented. Although perfumery has since made great strides, and despite the fact that fragrances have modernized and become liquid, the solid scent has endured over time and can become a valid eco-friendly alternative nowadays. But why prefer it to the traditional spray perfume we’re used to?

First of all, solid perfumes are made with natural ingredients and last a long time because the lack of the spray dispenser avoids unnecessary dispersions of the fragrance in the environment, but allows to concentrate the product only in a few and precise areas of the body. Also, it does not contain alcohol and therefore does not irritate the skin. Being made only of natural ingredients is perfect for all skin types, even the most delicate. One of the tips of experts to make a solid fragrance last longer is to moisturize the skin before application and not let it dry completely: in this way not only perfumes but also moisturizes the skin.

Other advantages are those of not staining clothes and withstanding temperatures up to 55 º C before melting: in practice it can be carried anywhere without altering! Compact and very comfortable to carry, these perfumes are perfect to be carried always in your bag and just one application to last several hours without leaving annoying trails as opposed to traditional ones. Not being a liquid, the solid scent is also perfect for air travel, as you can comfortably carry in a hand luggage without breaking the rule of 100ml of liquid.

Last but not least, among the benefits, reduce packaging to a minimum and facilitate the recycling of packages: it is no coincidence that we speak of "zero waste" products because they reduce the environmental impact as they save up to 70% of water one of the most precious resources on the planet. Not containing the formulas are more concentrated and cosmetics easier to store. The main consequence is less waste of product, in full line with the waterless beauty, the clean tendency to create water-free formulations.
