Oppose the 40th IFRA Amendment

We the undersigned petitioners oppose the 40th IFRA Amendment to its CoP, the unecessary red tape it will create, and the other widespread negative implications for all natural aromatics/essential oil users, across a range of professions. We will strongly object to any subsequent adoption of the Amendment into the EU regulatory process. and we request that IFRA reconsider ther position, preferably by debate with all affected parties.

  • Vinícius I understand the restrictions of some allergens in some ingredients, but the recent ban list is beyond absurd. Why don't they ban all ingredients in the world and start making scents only with water, then? For God's sake, I had enough on this. I'm seriously done with that. There will be a year soon when perfumes will not be called perfumes anymore. I'm done with these bans and restrictions... I'ts time to stop.

  • J. Taylor These bans are ridiculous. Banning ingredients because a small percentage of the population may be allergic to them is like banning peanuts and milk because some people are allergic to them. I am allergic to penicillin as are many other people. Does that mean it should be banned? No, we simply stay away from penicillin. Allergens is not the true reason for these bans. It is appalling.
