Which formulas are hypoallergenic?

Only for which are marked “Stealth” for men should be considered hypoallergenic.

While we use minimal allergens, technically the vanilla essential oil in women’s formulas may be considered an allergen for some people.

Our carriers are perfumer’s alcohol SD40B and dipropylene glycol. Generally speaking, both are considered to be hypoallergenic, however people may have allergies to literally anything. I.e., there are rare allergies to even “hypoallergenic” materials

Here’s the links to the Environmental Working Group’s papers on dipropylene glycol and perfumer’s alcohol:

Dipropylene Glycol

SD 40B Denatured Perfumer’s Alcohol

Please keep in mind that a bittering agent is added by law to all alcohol containing products in the US, to prevent ingestion.

The bittering agent for perfumer’s alcohol SD40B is Bitrex, chemical name denatonium benzoate. It is reported by that dilutions as low as 10ppm are “unbearably bitter to most people”. 

For safety information on Bitrex, please see:

Final report of the safety assessment of Alcohol Denat., including SD Alcohol 3-A, SD Alcohol 30, SD Alcohol 39, SD Alcohol 39-B, SD Alcohol 39-C, SD Alcohol 40, SD Alcohol 40-B, and SD Alcohol 40-C, and the denaturants, Quassin, Brucine Sulfate/Brucine, and Denatonium Benzoate”

When you read scientific literature about ingredient safety, keep in mind that many test quantities that workers may be exposed to (i.e., us, not you). 

Do your best to look for the literature that shows the effects of the smaller amounts that end consumers are exposed to.

We don’t want you to keep a product you are allergic to. It may not be our fault, but it’s not yours, either! So please jump on chat or send an email support to arrange to send it back for exchange or refund.

Definitions & Legal

Basic instructions

Apply all sprays and oil as you would any other cologne or perfume. They may be advanced, but you still apply them the old way.

In case you don’t wear much perfume or fragrance, this means all your warm spots: wrists, inner crook of arms (behind elbow).

In warmer months, applying to your neck and chest work well.

To remove perfume, generally you use bar soap. Castille tends to work best.

Warnings:

If you experience ANY allergic or unwanted reactions to our products whatsoever, please disctonue use & return them for a quick and easy full refund.

We want to make sure these products are perfectly pleasant and healthy for you.
