Fragrances as a concentrate are considered as a mixture of substances. They are submitted to the REACH and CLP regulations and in addition to IFRA standards. When included in final products, they also need to be compliant with the regulation applicable to the final product.
For cosmetic products in Europe, for example, the Cosmetic Regulation is applicable. For non cosmetics products, that are considered as mixtures, the CLP regulation applies and the products but also fragrances must have a PCN (Poison Center Notification) notification.
