Fragrance

Fragrance could seem an obligatory component in high-end skin and hair care products, but it is indispensable for masking some essential ingredients with an unpleasant odor. We choose manufacturers who use mostly natural fragrance ingredients, volatile compounds derived from fruits, flowers, berries, and tree bark, which provide pleasant scents, improve mood, and leave additional beneficial effects on the skin.

Some natural substances used as fragrances have protective functions against microbes, insects, and damaging environmental factors like UV exposure. So, they expose potent antimicrobial action fighting against harmful bacteria while acting as a natural preservative booster. In addition, some of them are perfect insect repellants and antioxidants protecting skin from insect bites and the harmful effects of free radicals and oxidative stress. Combining beneficial action with pleasure, those ingredients complete the sensual profile of the formulation making the skincare routine more enjoyable, attractive, and satisfactory.

Alpha-isomethylionone is a colorless to pale oily liquid, an isomer of Methyl Ionone, but its sweet orris-like scent is felt more attractive.
Benzyl salicylate
Benzyl salicylate is an ester of benzyl alcohol and salicylic acid that naturally occurs in many plants (such as Ylang-ylang, Brickellia veronicifolia, Hyacinth, etc.) and is widely used in fragrances and skincare products for sweet, floral, and slightly balsamic odor.
Citronellol
Thanks to a sweet floral rose-like odor with citrus notes, it is mainly used as a fragrance, masking, and insect repellant ingredient in skin and hair care applications.

Limonene
Besides its pleasant scent and masking function, Limonene is valued for its astringent, tonic, and binding action, as well as it can be used as a solvent for insoluble ingredients and for controlling the viscosity of the formulation.
Linalool
It is a natural, aromatic, and oily substance with a pleasant floral scent used in perfume, in the food industry as a flavoring agent, and in personal care applications as a masking agent or fragrance.
