Really Nice Smell! But unpredictable

I used this scent for baby shower favors with a wooden wick using Candle Science 9oz tumbler and the burns have been extremely inconsistent. It’s also hard wicking this jar with a wooden wick with Joy Wax. Id love to hear any suggestions

I’ve searched high and low for a baby fragrance that doesn’t smell sharp and have that “chemical” smell. This fragrance is perfect and has depth! I am in LOVE!!

Great fragrance!

I'm not a fan of the smell of baby powder, BUT this oil smells exactly like it! I love that these are fragrances actually smell like what they say they smell like!

Love this scent!

I just made glycerin soap with this scent THEN I saw it isn't safe for soap. Why????

Hi Cindy! Regarding soap, even when the CandleScience usage recommendation is 0%, you can always reference a fragrance's IFRA certificate for the final say. These certificates can be found beneath the "Properties" section on our fragrances' product pages. You may find that fragrance is still approved for soap applications at low percentages. We require fragrances to be approved at a minimum of 2% for us to recommend them for soaps, but Baby Powder will be safe to use at up to a 1.36% load under Category 9 - Rinse Off and Bathwater Products/Soap/Shampoo. In these cases, we recommend testing at those rates to determine if it will still work for your product. Anything above that amount would not be safe for the skin. We hope this helps, but if you have further questions or concerns please don't hesitate to reach out to our support team at [email protected].

Baby Powder Review

It smelled vaguely like Love's Baby soft. I enjoyed it! I might consider putting this in a nostalgia line of candles tbh...

I love this scent and was planning to use it in soap. Wondering why it is not considered body safe. Would it be safe to use in laundry detergent since that would not have direct contact with skin?

Baby Powder Scent!

I bought for use in Cold Process soap. It is a nice soft/sweet scent. Why is it for wax melts and candles only?

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We're happy to hear you've been enjoying this fragrance oil! We base our recommendations on the IFRA certificate, which sets safety guidelines for fragrances. The soap safe percentage is lower than our recommendations, so we don't list Baby Powder as soap-safe. A member of our Customer Support team is reaching out via email to provide further assistance.

Smells soooo good!

Who doesn't love the smell of baby powder! This is definitely a great buy. I do wonder why it's not body safe though. Would love to make my own oil or body butter using this scent.

Love the smell but would have loved it if it was soap safe.

Why would this not be safe for soap? Just reading this after making soap with it. Is there anything harmful?

It took some work.. but I got it !

I didn't experience the original Baby Powder, so I bought this version hoping it would work and I wasn't happy at all; it smelled like Blue Magic hair oil 🤣. I went in the lab and got to mixing and finally found the perfect blend.. Eucalyptus-mint!!! ( from another company, I wasn't sure if I could post the name) Anywho it smells amazing. Try it out.
