(3 reviews)  


What a delightful and unique scent! Juicy citrus and leafy greens dance merrily with notes of creamy and floral elderflowers. delightful peonies, sweet berry nectar and lemony magnolias on a base of slightly spicy bed of sandalwood, amber, patchouli, and cedar. Fresh, flowery, earthy.

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 soy melts. My first pour, I was amazed at how sweet and clean this is. It would make a beautiful perfume or soap scent. I'm not a floral person, but I LOVE this!

Disadvantages: None

This is a really nice "green" scent with nuances of citrus and florals. Leans a tad towards the feminine side, but it's a great garden/nature fragrance. Great cold/hot throw in 464 soy at 10%. Sells great in a perfume!

Advantages: Green scent without "sharpness"
Great complex notes
Great in perfume

This fragrance smells wonderful and unique, but don't try to make any elaborate swirls or designs because it is an extremely fast mover. You might be able to do a two color swirl if you hand stir your cp batter, but do not use a stick blender.

Advantages: It smells awesome and the fragrance sticks very well in cold process soap, and no discoloration.

Disadvantages: quick accelerator if you stick blend the fragrance into your soap. You must work quickly if you plan to do multiple colors.
