The relationship between the fragrance industry and the dermatological community in the past has not always been perceived as one
of partnership. IFRA, the International Fragrance Association, has started a series of initiatives to underline the industry’s commitment
to market safe products that limit any unavoidable risk to the minimum while at the same time enabling the consumer to choose
from a variety of fragranced products. This article describes current projects and future initiatives.
