The International Fragrance Association (IFRA) recently test-sampled 50 products randomly selection from a range of 450 products marketed in ten different countries and found that all the fragrance formulations in the products were in compliance with the IFRA Code of Practice, marking the fifth cycle of IFRA's compliance program. This cycle covered the time from May 2010 to May 2011, and the products, which include fine fragrances, body care products and household products, were analyzed by an independent body, Eurofins Scientific.
Pierre Sivac, IFRA president, said, “This fifth cycle of our compliance program has once again demonstrated that the standards are adhered to by IFRA members and the fragrance industry at large. Our objective at IFRA is to ensure the safety of fragrance products for the consumer and the environment. Our industry has collectively undertaken the responsibility of enacting this compliance program to ensure the IFRA standards are respected, and I am very pleased that the results of this latest cycle show 100% compliance.”
