We also learned a bit about the composition of Fragrance Oils that Scentsy uses in their products at World Tour.  Here's a bit of information taken from the sheet we were given:

Scentsy uses a combination of natural and synthetic oils in all our fragrances for a variety of reasons, but ultimately, the selection is based on what will give the end user the best, most consistent experience.

Natural Oils

-Oils extracted from plants or flowers via steaming are called essential oils

-Oils extracted from plants or flowers via chemical or solvent processes are called absolutes

-Of the 4k raw ingredients available for fragrance, about 400 are natural

Synthetic Oils

-Overcome allergies and reduce concerns about toxicity and causticity

-Create an environmentally friendly alternative to natural oils

-Increase the palate of safe ingredients available

-Provide consistency in the fragrance character

Scentsy Fragrance complies with all four governing bodies that determine fragrance oil safety:

-Research Institute for Fragrance Manufacturing (RIFM): an internationally recognised organisation that conducts research, testing and evaluation to encourage uniform safety standards related to the use of fragrance ingredients.

-International Fragrance Association (IFRA):  the official representative body of the fragrance industry worldwide.  Specifically, IFRA develops guidelines for usage based on product type.

-Reach and the Consumer Labeling Protocol:  REACH is the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use. 

-United States Environmental Protection Agency: (EPA)- Maintains material safety data sheets (MSDS) on every ingredient and ensures substances are environmentally safe.
