This fragrance oil receives its base scent from real frankincense and myrrh essential oils.
Not only for the holiday season to come this scent is somewhat 'sexy' which makes it a great choice to be used in a men's only line, throughout the year. If you plan to use it in cold process or melt & pour soaps, please note that because of the vanilla base - it will discolor to a light brown/tan.
External use only. Not intended to be used in lip care products.
INCI: Fragrance oil
A note about fragrance oils: We at Organic Creations, Inc. strive to list all our products with an honest environment as to what they are made of. Fragrance oils often slip through this crack on most websites because the FDA allows them to be legally listed in the ingredient section on cosmetic labels, simply as "fragrance oil" even though they are comprised of many different ingredients.
I do not seek to explain why they have this rule, you can checkout this link if you are interested on their stand: http://www.fda.gov/Cosmetics/ProductsIngredients/Ingredients/ucm388821.htm#labeling
The term fragrance oil specifically means "made of synthetic ingredients." Manufactures will not disclose their ingredients, by law they aren't required to. Some manufactures will provide information on the chemical called phthalates. All our fragrance oils are all phthalates free.
On the flip side to this debate, scent is generally the last ingredient listed on a label. That means its the least added by volume. So the amount of fragrance oil that is actually in a product is extremely small I assume this is another reason why the FDA doesn't require their ingredients to be spelled out.
If you are against using fragrance oils in your formulations - I would suggest checking out essential oils which are made from the leaves, twigs, flowers and roots from nature. However, if you are looking to add a scent to your formulation that is not achievable from essential oils, your only option is using a fragrance oil. Even names that sound natural like apple, pear, mango, etc. are not natural. Its simply impossible to extract those scents into an essential oil base, hence why fragrance oils exist and are found in formulations all over the world.
