Scents…three things you want and the scary ones you don’t

What you want

Scent can create a welcoming environment for residents and guests – particularly if it is light enough to be perceived, not announced.  Scents can also get rid of some less expected odours such as such as pet, personal and cooking odours.

What you REALLY don't want

When we first looked into providing scented products to our customers we went to industry wholesalers and found some wonderful and fresh-smelling products. However, as with all things, we looked at the SDS sheets before buying any. It was really surprising: some products on the market have toxicity and fertility warnings!  Producers assured us it was because of SDS “legal requirements” and that once dispersed these were in minute quantities.  Really?? I mean really? …would you handle these? Would you ask employees to risk it? Should residents have any exposure?  The answer is pretty simple: No.

You don't need to be a rocket scientist to care about safety

Many people are seriously looking for fertility options. Health issues are paramount when one isn’t well. So, We started to research options. We figured that there are many beautiful products out there so finding ones that are SAFE and environmentally friendly as well should not be an impossible challenge.

We worked with scientists to create lists:

Of what we want

  • Great scents
  • Safe
  • Vegan

We worked with our PhD partners to find products that have what we want, and don’t have the other ingredients.  The result? “CongiScents” since we have knowledge, realization and perception that scents should be as healthy as possible, have minimal impact on the enviorment and be vegan.  Keeping our products as safe as possilbe is one of our core values.
