We know two things with great confidence. Many makers create in their homes that they share with children and pets. And most people making scented products want them to contain ingredients that are safe to use and enjoy at home.
However, fragrances have historically been designed for use in mass-produced products made in industrial settings.
The prevailing fragrance safety standards were also developed through the lens of factory production—where safety protocols and good manufacturing practices are in place to protect the people working with fragrances in controlled, commercial environments.
But many of the makers we serve create in their kitchens. And the reality is, they don’t have access to specialized protective equipment or expensive air filtration systems at their homes and businesses.
We recognized the existing fragrance safety standards weren’t made for makers.
Bolstered by this realization, and by our commitment to offer the highest-quality candle making supplies on the market, we set out to reformulate our entire fragrance oil line specifically with the safety of makers—be they crafters, hobbyists, or indie businesses—in mind.
This multi-year undertaking ultimately resulted in our groundbreaking CandleScience Clean Scents™ project.
Launched in 2020, Clean Scents™ is an in-house regulatory program. Through it, the goal is to offer as many fragrances as possible that meet our own rigorous safety standards.
The Clean Scents™ standards are designed so makers can feel confident that the fragrances they use in their homes, garages, workshops, or studios are safe to work with in these settings.
