Specialty chemicals company Lanxess presented its portfolio of flavor and fragrance applications, including aroma chemicals, at the XXV FAFAI International Convention and Expo in Kolkata, from 24-25 February.
Lanxess is a provider of flavor and fragrance applications and offers an extensive range of fragrances, which includes more than 30 aroma chemicals. The company says its offerings have high purity, are consistent, and provide earthy, floral, fruity, cinnamic or woody notes. They are found in perfumes and personal care items, food and beverages, and home-cleaning products.
The company exhibited its broad range of products including – Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Acetate, Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde (also known as HCA or alpha-hexyl cinnamaldehyde) and Ocimene PQ. Benzyl benzoate has a high molecular weight and nearly odorless nature, making it an extensively used fixative in the fine fragrance and perfume industry. Benzyl Acetate is a clear, colorless liquid at ambient temperatures and has a slight, jasmine-like odor.
HCA is the preferred choice of many perfumers looking for characteristics that are more floral and less fatty. HCA brings green, floral notes with aromas of jasmine and muguet (lily-of-the-valley) to many household care and personal care products, such as fabric softeners, deodorants, shampoos and soaps.
Ocimene PQ imparts a top note of citrus, lavender and spicy herbs to fragrances, colognes and stimulated essential oils, such as bergamot oil and lavandin oil. It is especially valued in mango fragrances as well as fragrances in personal care and a variety of household products on a limited scale.
In addition to flavors and fragrances, the F&F business unit develops and produces preservatives and animal nutrition products. These substances are found in various everyday consumables such as cosmetics and personal care products, detergents and cleaning agents, beverages, baked goods, candles, oils and animal feed.
