Flavoring oils are different from fragrance oils.
Flavoring oils are regulated by the FDA because they are designed to be used for consumption or for cosmetic products that may be ingested. The ingredients contained in flavorings are considered GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA. Flavorings developed for lip balms smell, but do not taste. It is only when sweetener is added to the flavoring that you can taste the flavoring. Since lip balm, lip gloss, and lipstick are worn on the lips, flavorings are used to scent them. Our flavoring oils are created using distilled, fractionated coconut oil as their solvent. Some of the ingredients in our flavorings are natural, while other ingredients are not considered natural. Flavorings typically do not have as strong of a scent throw as fragrances do. Therefore, it is not advisable to use flavorings in candles, poopourri, or smelly jellies. Some people choose to use flavoring oils in their pet bath products as opposed to fragrance oils because flavoring oils are considered safe for consumption.
Fragrances are regulated by IFRA (International Fragrance Association), and typically are not safe to use in applications that are worn on your lips. However, if a fragrance oil is listed as safe to be used on the lips under category #1 of the IFRA Compliance sheet for that particular fragrance, it can be used in lip applications. Fragrances are made using solvents which allow for better scent throw than flavorings. Therefore, we suggest using fragrances, as opposed to flavorings, in candles, smelly jellies, potpourri, soap, and most other bath products.
