IFRA, or the International Fragrance Association, sets the standards for how much fragrance may be used in a particular application, like soap or candles. The IFRA Standards are a set of rules and regulations for the use of fragrance materials, and a baseline for the industry.
On Jan 10, 2020 IFRA issued its most recent guidance with the 50th amendment. IFRA periodically makes changes to its standards and regulations to reflect new understandings of the different ingredients that make up fragrances. Typically, these changes don’t necessitate much action by fragrance companies and makers of home fragrance and body care products; the 50th amendment to the IFRA Standards, however, does.The biggest impact to our industry is in the categories we reference for soaps, bathwater products, lotions, reed diffusers, and candles. These changes do not only impact Virginia Candle Supply, they affect the fragrance industry as a whole.
Below are the IFRA statements updated for the 50th amendment to the IFRA standards. While our fragrances have not been changed in any way, the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) amended use standards that impact many of our fragrances. Please review the IFRA standards for proper usage rates.
Please note that some of our IFRA statements still say 49th amendment on them, but they are all based on the 50th amendment. This was a typographical error when preparing the IFRA Statements. We are in the process of updating all of these. We apologize for any inconvenience.
