For checking IFRA compliance or any other standard of your products, depending on your equipment you proceed in the following ways
- First way: I have a chromatograph
Therefore you can mix all substances in a bottle and check its composition. Upon the measure, you can load all the components and percentages in an excel, to later load that excels in the application in Load Analytic screen:
The analytic once loaded on the system can be checked with “Match Standard” Button. You will get the result and which component was the root of the mismatch in such case.
2. Second way: I don’t have a chromatograph
Then you will have to ask vendors for the chemical composition of the substances you are using. Once loaded all the compositions of every substance being used, just as it was explained in point 1 (although this excel will come from the vendors), go to “Mix SubstanceMix Substance” screen.
That is the place where you put all the substances you are using in the mix together.
Here if you click on “Check Standard” a new window will appear calculating the current chemical composition of the mix based on the analytic of each substance involved
If you don´t have the analytic of one of the substances involved, automatically the typical composition of the substance will be used, but the standard cannot be considered reliable, as you need the accurate analytic, though this process can guide you for what substance to use.
By default IFRA with category 4 (Body Creams, Oils, Lotions, Fragrancing Creams of all types (except baby creams and lotions)) is active. But can be changed to any other category.
