Quality Control Practices Checklist

Quality Control Practices Checklist

Every single scent and product goes through a quality checklist before it's considered as a possible product or scent on my web site. This dedication to sourcing the best products and scents has always been a consistent business practice and you know that you will always get a high quality product from somethinspecial.com.

  • All products and scents are 100% cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny certified. My certification is reviewed and renewed every year.
  • All fragrances and most products are vegan. I am also an ethical vegan (as of February 2018), so I'm very passionate about this. I do have a few vegetarian "legacy" products that I've carried for over 10 years and have their own raving customer following.
  • All my perfume oils are DEP phthalate free.
  • All my perfume oils are body safe, that is why you won't see many cinnamon, black cherry or heavy clove scents.
  • All fragrances have been chosen by you, my buyers. When a new scent is requested, I order it in and send three samples to three different people who have and love the original perfume. They compare it and if all three different people declare it a match, then it is added to the scent list. If any one of the testers do not think it's a match to the original, it does not get added to the scent list.
  • All natural essential oils and blends are certified organic.
  • All products are paraben-free.
  • Everything is handmade by me.
  • Everything is handmade fresh when ordered.
  • I constantly rotate stock and if I am disposing more of a particular scent than selling it, it gets taken off the fragrance list. I hate waste but I refuse to send you anything less than 100% fresh products. If you are absolutely in love with a discontinued scent, you can always special order it HERE.
  • All my scents are gender and age fluid and can be worn by everyone. I am in 100% support of equality for everyone.
I'm also passionate about being a planet-friendly company, for more info go HERE.
