Bora Bora
(23 reviews)  


The tropical Pacific island of Bora Bora in the territory of French Polynesia is arguably the most beautiful island on the planet. Its tropical climate boasts lush greenery, expansive coral reefs, and a large, stunning lagoon. Celebrating and honoring this cherished isle, our Bora Bora fragrance oil blends sweet pineapple, acai berry, mango zest, tart passion fruit, yuzu zest, green apple, orchid leaves, and musky nuances.

Customers purchasing Bora Bora fragrance oil were also interested in our wholesale fragrance oils for soap.

CP Notes: Loses a touch of the tart top notes in CP, but probably only noticeable to soapers, it would not stop me from using this. No A, medium warm yellow D. I'd plan to go with the D a little bit when you plan your colors.

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.

Do not question this, just buy a 16ounce bottle. I cannot keep this in stock. It is truly AMAZING! It is very strong, and when I mix scents this one takes over so I suggest you go lightly on this if your mixing it with something else.

Advantages: Last a long time
Everyone loves it
Strong solid scent

Disadvantages: I suppose some would say the strength but I like it like this
Please don’t change this formula ever ❤️

I usually don’t do reviews but I just had to. I used this fragrance oil to make lotion and it smelled beautiful. It is super sweet and fruity! I can pick up the mango zest scent the most, and then the pineapple. It’s my favorite so far.

Advantages: Smells great and super strong.

Disadvantages: N/A in creams so far.
