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.

This fragrance oil well in CP soap, but be prepared to move fast because it accelerates. It is my favorite FO from Rustic Escentuals. I use it in soap, bath bombs, roll-ons, and whipped butters.

Advantages: Fragrance holds well in all applications. No discoloration.

Disadvantages: Accelerates in cold process soap.

This is a great scent. While I did experience acceleration, that could be attributed to my recipe. On the other side, customers love this scent. Looks like I'll order again and revamp my recipe and/or temperature.

Advantages: Wonderful scent. Customers love it.

Disadvantages: I experienced acceleration making me call it my 'holy soap' due to air pockets that come with super thick batter, but will be ordering more. Advantages outweigh Dis!

Beautiful fragrance. Behaved well in cp soap. A nice patchouli without being heady, a nice woodsy note to round it out.

Advantages: Experienced no discoloration or A. Soap is a beautiful natural ivory color.

Disadvantages: When adding this FO, it turned the soap batter a bright peach-orange color. But after a day of cure it disappeared.

Just made CP soap and before I could get the colors mixed, it was already soap. Soaped at 90 degrees and used a recipe that is favorable to swirls. Did the best I could with it, but will not order again.

Disadvantages: Seized in CP
