(4 reviews)  


Southern Sunshine at its finest! Juicy Florida tangerines fused with sweet Georgia peaches makes for a fruity knockout winner! Out of the bottle it may not be what you expect, but once in your product it becomes even more magnificent! Candle tests had fantastic hot & cold throw. Makes wonderfully energizing lotions! Add just a touch of this oil to your bases of liquid soap and shampoo - you'll smell terrific all day. Great also as a blender with Green Apple, Fruit Medley, Vanilla Bean, White Cake, and Black Cherry.

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.

Tried this scent in a soy candle. From the bottle this scent is amazing, and the cold throw is out of this world, however, barely any warm throw at all. I burned the entire 8 oz "tester" candle I made with max the max fragrance oil the wax could hold and nada. Sure if you put your nose right to it is nice, but does not fill the room.

Advantages: Very nice scent out of bottle and cold throw, may be good with soaps/lotions.

Disadvantages: Little to no warm throw with soy.
