Fragrance house Symrise said that it has “profoundly reworked” its perfumers’ compendium, which has been published ever three to four years since 2003. This offers perfumers an updated edition of the detailed information about Symrise’s fragrance ingredients.
The latest update includes product identification and images and a register of renewable raw materials, among other things, enabling them to recognise ingredients from renewable raw materials and high-impact ingredients at a glance with the help of special symbols. The compendium is also sorted by fragrance groups and alphabetically, as well as having information about each fragrance ingredient according to the periodic table of the elements.
With a view to helping formulators use multi-functionals in place of or to reuse usage levels of preservatives, Symrise has also now incorporated its knowledge of cosmetic ingredients into the online platform Hogo. The name means 'protection' in Japanese
The company said that Hogo “significantly simplifies product development and allows formulators to immediately obtain a list of suitable ingredients for preserving cosmetic products – at any time and from anywhere in the world. Moreover, the platform provides access to potential combinations plus efficacy data and information on dosage”.
