    Lightbulb Are there any perfumers that have thumbed their noses at IFRA regulations?

    As I understand it, and I am willing to be corrected, the rules are not enforced. And yet most classics have been reduced to olifactory memories of themselves or discontinued. New fragrances are for the most part quite unexciting to me. I suspect but do not know for sure that independant house Slumberhouse uses what he wants. Perhaps it is time for a consumers revolt demanding that the regulations be changed allowing fragrances to contain a warning label like cigarettes. "CAUTION: This fragrance contains oakmoss and .008% of the population may have a minor reaction and might sneeze."

    I guess I just don't think too much about this.

    What penalties, if any, are there for not abiding by IFRA regulations? And do those penalties only apply to a certain region (e.g. Europe or US)?

    Also, is the reason why IFRA bans most ingredients because of just allergic reactions? Or is it due to more serious matters such as carcinogens?

    Just curious. If the reasons are mainly just due to allergens, then I think the IFRA bans are a shame.

    Most IFRA restrictions have little to do with allergens, carcinogens, or anything else having to do with your health.

    It's enforced strongly. Most good perfumers work for companies like Givaudan, Firmenich, IFF, Symrise, etc. All of the companies are members of the IFRA. Same goes for all of the perfumes houses. IFRA restrictions apply to most all cosmetics.

    As others have said, IFRA restrictions have to do with skin reactions, not with serious things like carcinogenic or the like. IFRA applies to firms that are part of the lobby, which means, pretty much anything because it involves the big aromachemical companies; and IFRA does check that the perfumes on the market follow the rules (though I am not sure what the internal punishment is).

    Compliance with IFRA in the EU *IS* voluntary. But So far, nobody of consequence has been out of compliance. They like it that they have had 100% compliance.

    However EVEN worse now is the stupidity coming out of Brussels and the new regulations that will go FAR beyond IFRA's inanities.

    There is no IFRA compliance demand in the USA. Except that compliance in the EU is assumed to be needed, even for a USA company, hence all mass market fragrance companies are running scared, and formulate to the standard of weakness known as IFRA.
