IFRA Code of Practice Notification of the 49th Amendment to the IFRA Code of Practice
IFRA fragrance material specification:
 d-, l-and dl-Limonene and natural products containing substantial amounts of it, should only be used when the level of peroxides is kept to the lowest practical level, for instance by adding antioxidants at the time of production. Such products should have a peroxide value of less than 20 millimoles peroxides per liter, determined according to the FMA method, which can be downloaded from the IFRA website (see Analytical Methods).
contains the following IFRA (Annex) restricted components: (non-analysis max. level reference only)
citronellol Max. Found: trace to <0.20 % and Reason: Sensitization
Recommendation for citrus unshiu peel oil usage levels up to:
  8.0000 % in the fragrance concentrate.
Use levels for FEMA GRAS flavoring substances on which the FEMA Expert Panel based its judgments that the substances are generally recognized as safe (GRAS).
The Expert Panel also publishes separate extensive reviews of scientific information on all FEMA GRAS flavoring substances and can be found at FEMA Flavor Ingredient Library
