    Default Oakmoss concentration allowed

    Hi there, I'd be really grateful for some advice on oakmoss concentration please. I am new to perfumes and would like to try making small quantities to sell online. I absolutely love oakmoss and would like to use it if possible. I have 2 questions:
    First: if I used oakmoss absolute in a perfume which was for sale would it have to be analysed by a chemist first to prove the concentration falls within the IFRA guidelines?
    Second: the IFRA guidelines seem to say you are allowed to use up to 0.1% oakmoss in the formula. Does this mean that if I made some eau du toilette total volume of 400cc that I would be allowed to include up to 0.4cc oakmoss? Or does 'formula' just refer to the blend of essential oils used? In which case, if for example a perfume contained a total of 60cc essential oils (to be later diluted in alcohol), that you would only be alowed to use 0.06cc oakmoss?
    Thanks in advance, Makita86

    You would probably get more help on this topic if you posted it under the forum "Fragrance DIY" where members that make their own frags go.
