This is another scent I had to google as I'd never heard of a lucuma. Once called the "gold of the Incas" Lucuma is a fruit native to Peru. Our Lucuma oil has a definite fruity, sweet, creamy scent. Apples, pears, mangoes, and pineapples with notes of maple syrup and jasmine and a dry down of caramel and sweet musk. Unique and intriguing, this is a scent that will have everyone guessing what it is supposed to be.

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 smells AMAZING!! I am in love with it. Used it in CP soap. Another reviewer mentioned ricing. I experienced mild ricing, but it blended out without any issues. Will definitely order this fragrance again.

Advantages: Smells FANTASTIC!

Disadvantages: Mild ricing in CP soap

This fragrance smells amazing. It's a beautiful fruity smell with some floral undertones that makes it just decadent. I used it in cold process soap, soaping at about 100. It riced pretty badly (really big clumps). I was able to blend it out but that brought my mixture to a really thick trace. As long as you prepare for ricing, you'll be fine. I definitely recommend it and I'll be using it again and again.

Disadvantages: rices

Give this scent a minute to blend with your skin and you will love it. It is exotic and you can smell the sweet fruits mingling with the maple
