The cosmetic industry is booming at present, and customers continue to shop for newer fragrances. Given the ethical reasons for using animals, plants, etc. the concerns that were raised, has helped companies resort to other methods. Therefore, compared to the past, at present, these cosmetics are manufactured using synthetic perfumes. If you go through the ingredients listed in the boxes, bottles, etc. you would notice it. Therefore, majorities of companies are now using these contents to make it. Furthermore, these substances are more cost-effective compared to extracting it from plants and animals. As a fact, customers are able to purchase products that match their budget.
On the other hand, there’s not one, but many types of synthetic aromas that you might not be aware of. For that matter, majorities aren’t aware of it, but simply use the product. Moreover, other than using it in cosmetics, these composites are used in various products. For instance including detergents, house hold cleaning products and so on. With that said, here are some of the synthetic compounds that the perfume manufacturers use to make these products:
Fragrances manufacturers that make products with the key ingredient ‘white musk’ is tonalide. This synthetic polycyclic musk in used to manufacture various other products other than perfumes. Moreover, it’s also called fixolide, which give the smell of freshly done laundry.
Alternatively, this is a common compound found in majorities of perfumes and cosmetic products. Mainly used in the production of feminine cosmetics and beauty products for it’s floral scent. Furthermore, these products give a woody, mild and sweet aroma when spraying colognes and perfumes.
On the other hand, limonene is a colourless liquid, which gives a strong aroma of citrus or orange. Fragrances manufacturers either extract it from the fruit (the rind of the citrus fruit) or made in the laboratory (synthetic make). Those using products with this compound could experience side effects such as irritable skin, allergies, etc.
o Musk Xyelene
This compound mimics the natural or actual musk and is used in many products such as perfumes and soaps. It has a very deep and intense aroma compared to the other types mentioned above. As a fact, products with this compound are very popular among customers.
These compounds are mixed or blended in research labs to create unique aromas for newer products. Which is another reason, why companies use these compounds in these products over natural extracts. Moreover, not every scent or fragrance can be extracted and therefore, synthetics are used to mimic the aroma.
