Why Your Hormonal Balance Matters to Us

Hormones act as the conductors of our body's intricate processes, directing and coordinating various bodily functions ranging from sleep patterns to mood regulation. The endocrine system, the messaging system of our bodies, relies on these hormones to regulate these various bodily processes. At Medeau, we recognise the profound impact of hormonal balance on overall health and wellbeing.

Hormones are not just limited to puberty or pregnancy; they are at work every single day, influencing our physical and mental health. From metabolism to digestion, from mood regulation to growth and development, hormones are involved in almost every aspect of our lives. They act as messengers, traveling through the bloodstream to different parts of the body, managing cellular processes, appetite, stress levels, and much more. Consequently, even minor disruptions in hormone balance can lead to significant health issues.

One area where hormonal balance can be inadvertently disrupted is through exposure to certain harmful ingredients found in traditional fragrances. Let's take a closer look at three such ingredients:

  1. BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene): Used as a preservative in many products, BHT has been shown to mimic oestrogen in the body which can disrupt hormone balance and potentially promote the growth of tumors.
  2. Oxybenzone: A chemical sunscreen that absorbs UVA and UVB rays, oxybenzone has been linked to hormonal imbalance, contributing to decreased sperm count and infertility.
  3. Phthalates: These chemicals, commonly used in fragrances to make scents adhere to the skin, can interfere with hormone production and lead to reproductive abnormalities. 

At Medeau, we understand the importance of avoiding such harmful ingredients. That's why our formulas are consciously crafted to be non-toxic, free of allergens, and 100% vegan. We do not use parabens, phthalates, artificial dyes, or any other ingredients that could disrupt hormonal balance.

Our dedication to creating hormone-friendly fragrances has been recognised by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), who have rated our ingredients as 'low' on their toxicity scale. This means that you can confidently spray your Medeau perfume without worrying about adverse effects on your hormonal health.

Whether you're pregnant, breastfeeding, experiencing menopause, or simply seeking to maintain hormonal balance, Medeau offers a safe and luxurious solution. With our carefully curated blends, you can indulge in the pleasure of scent without compromising your health. After all, when it comes to fragrance, shouldn't beauty be as much about what's inside the bottle as it is about what's on the outside?
