    *Compound listed in 7th Amendment to the European Cosmetics Directive.
    **Additional potential allergens included in this formulation.
    †Compounds defined as two isomers resulting in two chromatographic peaks.
    ††Components of the Fragrance Allergen Standards Kit are not available for individual sale.

To help protect consumers with allergies, the 7th Amendment to the European Cosmetics Directive mandates that finished cosmetic products and personal care products must indicate if they contain excess amounts of any allergen on a list of 26 compounds. Of those 26, 24 are volatile chemicals that can be determined through GC-MS analysis, and version 3 of the method outlined by the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) does just that.

This specially formulated reference standard kit exceeds IFRA purity requirements and contains all 24 EU-defined fragrance allergens detectable by GC-MS, along with seven additional potential allergens. When analyzed on a Restek Rxi-17 column following the IFRA method, all required compounds and isomers resolve clearly with no coelutions. This time-saving mix is also incredibly robust with a shelf life of over one and a half years, so you can stock an already-made standard instead of spending the time to create a new batch for every analysis.

Whether you manufacture fragrances in Europe, sell to European consumers, or simply wish to test for allergens in your products, choose the reference standard mix that helps you follow IFRA methodology in one convenient, long-lasting formulation.
