WHAT IS IFRA? The International Fragrance Association (IFRA) is the global body representing fragrance ingredient manufacturers and compounders.

WHAT DO THEY DO? IFRA sets the maximum safe use levels of fragrances in finished consumer products based on scientific research into potential health and environmental effects of ingredients used to make the fragrance.  These limits (called IFRA Standards) are set with independent scientific research from the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM).

WHY DOES IFRA MATTER?  IFRA standards keep consumers and the environment safe.  In 2020, IFRA announced a major update to their requirements, called 49th Amendment.  This Amendment expands the scope and restrictions of materials for increased transparency and consumer safety.

All of our oils are IFRA 49th Amendment compliant!!  You can see these limits in action at - just look for the 'IFRA 49 Guidelines' link on each fragrance oil page.
