When a product is fragrance-free, does it mean that there is no scent?

Most people get confused with the terms “fragrance-free”, “unscented” or “non-perfumed”. Skincare products that are fragrance-free mean that no fragrance is included in the formulation of the products.
However, this does not mean that the product has no scent. Some products labelled as “fragrance-free” may have a slight scent, which is likely to come from the ingredients.

Furthermore, products that are labelled as “unscented” or “non-perfumed” have no smell. To hide the scent of the ingredients, the products are may be formulated with fragrance instead.

Therefore, products that are “unscented” or “non-perfumed” do not mean that they are “fragrance-free”.
