The fourth cycle of the International Fragrance Association compliance program, which tests a number of randomly selected fragrance products, has found that all were compliant with the association’s code of practice.

IFRA’s compliance program is an annual occurrence and attempts to check that no banned substances are being used in fine fragrances, body care products and household products, and that they are safe for consumer use.

In this fourth cycle, 50 products were chosen at random from a selection of 450 marketed products in ten different countries, and all were found to comply with the code.

According to IFRA director Jean-Pierre Houri, the 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 that the IFRA Standards are respected and I am very pleased that the results of the fourth cycle show 100 percent compliance,” he said.
