What are your thoughts on environmental influences? Besides the fact that we have carefully chosen our ingredients to minimize the effects on the environment, we constantly work with improving the environmental aware- ness along the whole production and business lines. The factory producing Vakinme systematically works with environmental goals where among other things all the energy being used comes from renewable sources and recycling all waste to the greatest possible extent. The product packaging is recyclable. For hotels and larger businesses you can order Vakinme’s products by the litre to refill the original bottles. What are essential oils? Essential oils are natural oils mainly used for scenting the products. How many percent in Vakinme’s products are natural vs synthetic? If we stick to natural and/or of natural origin, it’s between 95-98 percent per product. What is the definition of “natural origin”? There is no simple answer. There are different definitions but the most common one is that “natural origin” means the substances originating from vegetable raw materials (coconut oil, rape oil etc.) which have been modified to for example esters or surfactants (these can be Ecocert or Cosmos certified for example). Natural oils are not modified but they are oils from pressed products like rape, coconut or sunflower. Are the scents natural? They are a mix of natural and to a certain degree synthetical fragrances. What is perfume oil and are there alternatives? Perfume oil is a mix of natural and/or synthetic fragrances. There are plenty of substances, from simple fragrances to ethereal oils consisting of many different ones, for example lemon oil, orange oil or lavender. It you want to scent products this is the main track. Earlier you could avoid the word “parfum” if you used ethereal oils for fragrance, but this is no longer so. What are allergens and why can they be found in scents and ethereal oils? Allergens are parts of fragrances and are occurring naturally. Currently there are 26 substances which are declared to be allergens. You can make perfumes without allergens, but they are often synthetic as most of the ethereal oils contain allergens. Another aspect of allergens is that they are only shown on the table of contents when they reach certain limits, which means you could have perfumes with allergens in such low concentrations that they wouldn’t have to be declared. Two ethereal oils not containing any of the 26 allergens are for example patchouli oil and peppermint oil (just some of them). 36 37
