Blue Skies
(12 reviews)  


This is one of those intoxicating, hard to put down fragrances. Fresh, soft, appealing, and uncommon! This reminds us of fresh air after a rain. Opening notes of citrus and anise on a heart of jasmine, lavandin, warm musk and cedarwood. Use it in your shampoo and total strangers will sniff your hair! Customers cannot get enough of anything we've made with it so far, and with its versatility in bath, body, and candle applications, the possibilities for tie-in products are just about endless. If you find yourself drawn to "clean" scents like Clothesline, Clothespins, etc., you'll adore Blue Skies!

All About IFRA

IFRA guidelines - what does it mean?

Let's discuss IFRA (International Fragrance Association) and what that means for you...

From their website: The IFRA Standards form the basis for the globally accepted and recognized risk management system for the safe use of fragrance ingredients and are part of the IFRA Code of Practice. This is the self-regulating system of the industry, based on risk assessments carried out by an independent Expert Panel.

The Expert Panel is made up of renowned independent experts from the fields such as dermatology, toxicology, pathology and environmental sciences. Their role is to evaluate the data on a fragrance ingredient to see if it supports the current use level, to make sure that there is no risk for the consumer. In cases where the safety assessment does not support the current use, the Panel instructs IFRA to issue a Standard either restricting or banning a material.

We have IFRA on all fragrance oils and flavor oils on our website. Click on the product name and below the description you'll see a set of tabs. IFRA is one of those tabs. You can click on that to see the *max* levels allowed for specific applications.

What do the max levels mean? Let's use Almond Paradise as an example. The IFRA guidelines on this state that there are no restrictions for soaps, shampoos, lotions, etc. So does that mean you can use 100% in your product? No. That would mean your product consists of straight fragrance oil.

The IFRA states the *max* that can be used, not the recommended amount. It is the responsibility of the maker to do their research to see what the recommended usage rate of fragrance oil for their particular recipe is.

For soap, as a general rule of thumb you will use up to 5% of fragrance oil in Cold Process (CP) soap and up to 3% in Melt and Pour (M&P) soap.

So if you see a fragrance oil and the IFRA says 23% for soap, don't use 23%. IFRA is important when it comes to lower numbers. There are a few fragrance oils that have max usage rates that are less than the percentages shown above. In that case, you can only use the max shown for the oil.

My best seller
This is not my personal favorite because it’s a bit too heavy for me, but it’s my customer favorite in room scent lotion, and m.p.soap. I’m not going to argue with success

Advantages: My customers love it

Disadvantages: Haven’t tried it in cp soap.

A lovely spa fragrance that can be used in lotions or scrubs.

Advantages: No discoloration.

Disadvantages: Riced and I was unable to stick blend it out.
Can only be used up to 3.1% in soap and the scent is almost unnoticeable at 3.1%

There is something very familiar about this fragrance, but I can't place it. It smells so nice, like a cozy hug from the earth. There are certainly floral notes but it's more complex than that. I used this in cold process soap and body butter, and it smells wonderful in both.
