Ayu perfume oils are hand blended with attars, essential oils, absolutes, key accords, plant and herb extracts. Certain perfumes contain a very small amount of synthetics. We do this to protect the environment from the over harvesting of endangered plant species. All entirely natural perfumes are listed as such. All Ayu products are plant based, cruelty free and contain no sulphates, parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde mineral oil or EDTA.
