Attention: IFRA's 44th amendment was implemented in August 2009. The IFRA standards regarding fragrance use restrictions are based on safety assessments by RIFM (Research Institute for Fragrance Materials), and are enforced by the IFRA Scientific Committee. All of our fragrances have been reviewed, and we will be posting the IFRA Certificate of Compliance, along with IFRA's Maximum Usage Levels for each fragrance we carry. These IFRA Certificates of Compliance will be found by clicking on the View MSDS Sheet / IFRA Certificate link on each fragrance page. We plan to keep our Recommended Maximum Usage Levels posted on our site since these values are currently well within the allowed maximum fragrance safety limits allowed by IFRA. We will be making changes to our recommended maximum use levels if these levels do not meet the IFRA requirements in the future. The new IFRA 44th amendment data can be somewhat confusing. An example of this would be: IFRA may allow 49% of a particular fragrance to be used in bath gel formulations, while we suggest using only 5%. We obviously suggest using only 5% in the formulation because 49% would cause the mixture to completely liquefy. The new IFRA 44th amendment categorizes each fragrance into 11 categories. These categories are based on the type of usage. Below, we have listed the 11 categories for you.
Category 1: Ingredients must be GRAS. Products in this category include: Lip products & Toys.
Category 2: Deodorant & Antiperspirant products.
Category 3: Eye products, men's facial creams, baby creams, baby lotions, baby oils, products applied to recently shaved skin.
Category 4: Products applied to unshaved skin (perfumes), hair styling products, hair sprays, body creams, body oils, lotions (except for baby products), hair deodorant, foot care products.
Category 5: Women's facial creams, facial make-up, hand cream, facial masks, baby powder/talc, wipes or refreshing tissues for face, neck, hands, body.
Category 6: Ingredients must be GRAS. Products include: mouthwash, toothpaste.
Category 7: Intimate feminine wipes, toilet wipes, baby wipes, insect repellent.

MONEY Fragrance is Here!
We actually had our perfumist chemically analyze fresh money in order to create this NG Original Fragrance! You wouldn't believe how long it took to get our hands on fresh, new money! You can actually smell the cotton of the money, as well as the fresh ink top notes. It smells wonderful in candles, and you would not believe how good it smells in bath products and cologne! This is a unisex fragrance all the way!
