Wholesale Supplies Plus, Inc. certifies that this fragrance product is in compliance with the standards of the International Fragrance Association, provided the fragrance is used in the above application (s) at the noted maximum concentration level(s).
The "Maximum Use Level for Skin Exposure" is the amount of fragrance, flavor and essential oil that can come in contact with the skin. It does not mean that your base product can perform at these levels. You must test each oil in each application for evaluation of desired performance. Baby products have lower use levels than those listed above. If a desired application is not listed above, please call us at 1-800-359-0944 for maximum skin levels for skin exposure.
Scent is one of the most powerful of our five senses. Smelling a fragrance can trigger a treasured memory and provoke enjoyable thoughts. When designing products, consider how your customers will use your products. Will they be washed off? Will they be used to fragrance a home? Will they be used in conjunction with other products and how will those scents smell when combined? Consider complementing your scent with coordinating colors.

Directions: To Determine The Amount of Fragrance Oil Used In A Product:
The amount of fragrance that should be used in a formulation depends on three factors:
1) The maximum amount of scent the product base will accept.
2) The maximum IFRA skin safe level.
3) The amount of fragrance that smells good in your product.
You will look at these three maximum guidelines and use the LOWEST percentage.
For example: Desired smell is 5%, making MP soap is 3%, and the IFRA max use is 20.2%. You should not use more than 3% in your product. This 3% is the lowest of all of those numbers.
Maximum Product Base Guidelines:
MP Soap: 3% CP, HP, CPOP Soap: 6% Lotions and Scrubs: 1 – 2% Bath Salts, Fizzies & Tub Soaks: 5-10% Candle Wax: 6-12% (see specific wax for exact levels)
To Determine The IFRA Guidelines:
IFRA is a self-regulating trade organization that together with the industry's scientific center RIFM (the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials), establishes usage safety standards for materials that comprise fragrance and essential oils. Each year IFRA updates their standards based on sound science.
Wholesale Supplies Plus updates IFRA documents annually so that customers can stay up-to-date with the latest science. If you find IFRA levels have changed for your formula, it is standard to take 2 years to update products in the market.
COMMENTS: Despite the floral notes in this FO (and their tendency to accelerate/seize), I decided to trust WSP's notes on CP performance - I almost immediately regretted this decision. It discoloured to bright yellow and accelerated almost to the point of seizing. Used at 4% in my usual CP recipe. The scent is gorgeous but I was disappointed with WSP's inaccurate notes on it. I should have just ignored them and gone with my gut. I will agree that it did not rice, and the scent is still nice and strong.
We are sorry to hear that this fragrance seized and discolored in your CP soap recipe. We did in fact test this fragrance in a basic CP soap recipe and did not have an issue; however, different soap recipes may react differently to the same fragrance.
Since we all have our favorite "go to" recipes that, here are a few tips that that can possibly help avoid or slow acceleration and seizing.
1. Try diluting the fragrance oil in your base oils, instead of adding fragrance after your oils and lye are mixed.
2. Soaping at temps of 120 tends to work well for us as we have discovered that this slows down the reaction (Excluding CP Soap recipes containing milks or sugars).
3. Stir colors and or fragrance after your soap batter has reached trace to help slow acceleration, as stick blending can speed up trace.

COMMENTS: Maybe it is because I'm ending winter with lots of heavy/sweet scents around. This is light and lovely. It is just a little tart with a real geranium scent to it. Very authentic to the name.
