Japanese Pear & Ginseng

Japanese Pear & Ginseng
(9 reviews)  


A fabulous, sparkling, Far-East fusion of green Japanese pear with bold, red ginseng. This fragrance oil is definitely a "clean & fresh" scent that carries notes of peach blossom, amber and a dry-down of musky vanilla reminiscent of a pampering day at a trendy, upscale spa. This one is a must-have! Candle supplies, candle making supplies.
CP Notes: "Very slight A, no D. Scent is a bit sharp OOB, but mellows nicely in soap." "Accelerated, soap moved fast and ended up a bit crumbly."

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.

Used in CP soap with oils and lye below 80°F so any acceleration concerns were minimal. Behaved well with wonderful scent retention weeks after cure. Smells wonderful in lotions as well.

Advantages: Scent

Disadvantages: Would like more time to do swirls in soaps

Fragrance is awesome. My son loves it A LOT.

Advantages: Great in wax melts, used ParaSoy blend. Long lasting in waxes.

Disadvantages: Accelerated trace very quickly with my first time use in CP. Added fragrance at a light trace, gave stick blender about 4 pulses, hand mixed in exfoliate and ended up having to glop soap into mold.

*Used green tea as liquid for lye water, not sure if this also helped in acceleration.

I didn't like this particular scent but I give it 5 stars for hot throw! I use 1oz per lb parasoy. I can definitely detect both the ginseng and the pear and I decided I didn't like the ginseng. However the scent is true to the name! Just not a personal preference for myself. Btw RE ships quickly and items are packed nicely!

Advantages: Strong and true to name

Disadvantages: It's just not a scent for me

I love this scent. It is very light and fresh smelling. Very unique. It did accelerate and got think really fast, but the scent is so worth working fast. Will definitely order again.

Advantages: Light clean scent. No discoloration.

Disadvantages: Accelerates so you need to work fast and better to hand mix in CP soap to slow the trace.

Advantages: Great for high end products. Subtle and yet still substantial fragrance.
