The Fragrance Conservatory


What is Fragrance Creators ?

Fragrance Creators Association is the principal fragrance trade association. The organization represents the majority of fragrance manufacturing in North America. The association also represents interests along the fragrance value chain. Fragrance Creators’ membership is diverse, including companies that create, manufacture, and use fragrances and scents for home care, personal care, household, fine fragrance, and industrial & institutional products as well as those that supply fragrance ingredients, including natural extracts and other raw materials that are used in perfumery and fragrance mixtures. Fragrance Creators established and administers the Congressional Fragrance Caucus, ensuring ongoing dialogue with members of Congress and staff.

The fragrance conservatory:

Fragrance Creators Association announced the expansion of its award-winning—the resource for high-quality science and information to enhance understanding and appreciation for fragrance and empower consumers to make informed and confident choices about scented products. Refreshed with new and improved content, the site’s Ingredient Directory now contains data on the origin, history of safe use, and more on nearly 100 well-known fragrance ingredients. You can find information on fragrance ingredients using the ingredient directory: The Ingredient Directory – The Fragrance Conservatory.


A focus to understand safety and safe use of fragrance ingredients:

The fragrance conservatory particularly pays attention to helping visitors understand safety and safe use of fragrance ingredients. It develops a comprehensive section to explain how ingredients are assessed, the state and federal laws that govern fragrances in USA, and the international industry safety guidelines, like The International Fragrance Association (IFRA) guidelines, known as IFRA Standards, that is based on rigorous safety assessments provided by the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM).

Don’t hesitate to reach out or follow the link to access to this resource: The Rulebooks – The Fragrance Conservatory.




Notification of the 50th amendement to the IFRA standards:

IFRA Brand Book - brand identity, guideline and assets.





IFRA announces the Notification of the IFRA 50th Amendment on June 30, 2021

This particular Amendment solely addresses the prohibition of use for the fragrance material Mintlactone (CAS 13341-72-5) as specified below and comes in addition to previous Amendments to the IFRA Code of Practice. As a consequence, all elements of the 49th Amendment, as notified 10th January 2020, addressing other fragrance materials, remain unchanged and in place.

The implementation timelines for the 50th Amendment are as follows:

IFRA Standards Date for Standards entering into force for new creations Date for Standards entering into force for existing creations
Standards prohibiting the use of ingredients 2 months* after the date of the Notification letter 13 months* after the date of the Notification letter

*This includes 4 weeks to exchange information about pre-mixtures (bases) between manufacturers of fragrance mixtures. The timelines and dates refer to the supply of the fragrance mixtures only, not to the finished products.

Please note that SOZIO does not use Mintlactone, therefore, our fragrances are not impacted by this new amendment and remain compliant with the current IFRA recommendations.
