This makes a great cold process bar! Another one of our favorites, this scent is not at all what you expect when you take the cap off the bottle... the name simply does not do this blend justice. We really should rename it to something else! It is such a beloved fragrance with our regular customers that we don't dare let our stock get low for fear of bodily harm. This oil is super strong, our test candles ran us out of the room! This is a clean, fresh, bright fragrance, and lends itself to just about any application. We know you will love this as much as we do!

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.

Personally, I don't really smell mint but this is a wonderful fragrance that people are fighting over. I have a test bar in my office at work and everyone loves this scent! I did have slight acceleration but used my hot lye to melt the oils which usually speeds things up for me. I am back for a bigger bottle.

Advantages: Great seller, cucumber comes through but subtle.

Disadvantages: Slight A with CP soap
