    Default acetone, benzyl acetate, camphor, ethyl acetate, and methylene chloride in perfume

    I don't see these ingredients listed in the IFRA standards. Are they completely taken out as ingredients nowadays? There still exists a number of websites that claim these are being used.

    The standards only pertain to things that are prohibited or restricted in some way. If there are no standards, then they are not prohibited or restricted by the IFRA.

    Oh, I saw a thread about making acetone scent and thought it was prohibited now. I am looking for what they stopped using and when, would like to know what happened in the last decade or so.

    Acetone is used as a denaturant or solvent, not for it's scent. You may be thinking of something else.

    Why would you want to put industrial solvents like acetone or methylene chloride in perfume?

    I don't, just wondering if they are included in perfume then are they listed on the label as ingredient and not under scent.

    There *might* be a reason to place acetone in a perfume, but not likely methylene chloride. But methylene chloride might be a residue from a solvent based extraction, however... but still, rather unlikely in any appreciable amounts.
