Shooksa’s Perfumed Inserts are specially-formulated clean fragrances. Traditional air fresheners often contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), phthalates, and other chemicals that are endocrine disruptors and  can cause headaches, trigger allergies, and exacerbate asthma.   Even more frightening these chemicals can lead to:

  • reproductive issues
  • birth defects
  • liver damage
  • kidney damage
  • lung damage

SHOOSKA is committed to using only clean frangarances and DOES NOT use any of the following harmful chemicals commonly found in air fresheners.

Phthalates have been linked to a variety of health concerns.  Studies show that certain phthalates can act as endocrine disruptors, interfering with hormonal systems, which can lead to abnormalities of the reproductive system, an increased risk of certain cancers,  metabolic disorders, and in children developmental issues.    In terms of our respiratory system, some research suggests that phthalates are linked to the increase in risk of developing asthma and allergies.



Parabens have been flagged as potentially harmful to humans because it mimics estrogen like reactivity in our bodies.   While the body's natural hormones control and regulate normal bodily functions, the concern with parabens is they could interfere with normal hormone function by mimicking estrogen. This disruption is linked to an increased risk of breast cancer and reproductive issues. In addition, some people may experience skin irritation and allergies in response to parabens.


Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) 

SLS and SLES  have been associated with several potential health risks.  

SLS and SLES can cause skin irritation, particularly in individuals with skin sensitiviies, leading to rashes, dryness, and itchiness.  In addition they are can be irritating to the eyes.
