From plants to perfumes, the fragrance industry is rich in the sciences. It’s a natural fit to connect the fragrance industry to STEM education.
The Institute for In Vitro Sciences, Inc. (IIVS) received a grant from the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials, Inc. (RIFM) to develop non-animal test methods for the evaluation of fragrance materials for potential respiratory irritation and sensitization.
BPM-D and the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials, Inc. (RIFM) announced today that they have successfully concluded the first phase of their collaboration to increase the performance of RIFM’s Safety Assessment Process. As a result, the potential resource capacity and overall throughput of RIFM’s end-to-end process increased by over 300% through various process improvements and the elimination of resource constraints. These improvements allow RIFM to increase their process efficiencies, lower costs, and streamline inter-enterprise processes with their member companies.
12/14/15 - Season's Greetings From Everyone At RIFM!
Peace! In the Holiday Season and the New Year!
The fragrance industry believes that consumers should be confident that the products they buy are safe. Consumers today are aware of potential health and environmental issues and wish to make informed purchase choices. Therefore, the industry is committed to addressing consumers' interests through a continuous health and environmental safety review of fragrance ingredients. The Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM) is the organization missioned to provide the scientific basis for meeting that commitment.
The Expert Panel, at RIFM to review Safety Assessments of individual fragrance materials, takes time to honor outgoing RIFM President, David K. Wilcox, Ph.D.
The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit proposals from candidate organizations or institutions and select those with the best ability to generate data on testing airway effects and immunomodulation.
