Deep, silky, rich, velvety, melt-in-your-mouth premium dark chocolate! This is the kind you dip strawberries in. Mmmmmmmmmmm!!!! Absolutely delicious. This oil is versatile - it can be used in gel and has a strong throw in soy. It's also a terrific blender: mix with Black Cherry, Vanilla Bean, Coco Mango, Cinnamon, Morning Blend, Blue Raspberry....just about anything!
CP Notes: Did not accelerate trace.

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.

A true chocolate scent that holds well in CP soap, despite the relatively low IFRA safe usage rate for soap. Discolors to a light tan only, which makes it very useful if you want a chocolate scent without the dark chocolate color. It is great on its own, and would blend beautifully with so many FOs.

Advantages: Behaves beautifully in CP soap.
Only discolors to a light tan.
Great scent retention at low usage rate.

We ran a small test batch of this (2 lbs) of M&P Soap last week, and this smells good enough to eat! But please don't. We used this at .70 ounces for 2 lbs. (2.2 %). We WILL be ordering more! This stuff is YUM!

Advantages: Great scent
Long hold on the body
Good Flash point for working with M&P, we mixed it in at 150 degrees

Disadvantages: Haven't found any yet

This is a great blending scent. It doesn't have a sweet candy aroma more of a bittersweet chocolate that adds depth and intrigue especially for male fragrances.

Advantages: Very strong out of bottle but blends quite nicely with a variety of fragrances not just "food" fragrances.
