  • By ICN Bureau | May 13, 2024

LANXESS is exhibiting its extensive portfolio of aroma chemicals for the first time at SIMPPAR, an international exhibition of raw materials for perfumery.

During the event, which takes place on May 28 and 29 in Grasse, France, the specialty chemicals company will be showcasing its high-purity, nature-identical aroma chemicals, including new grades of Kalama benzyl benzoate as well as new aroma ingredients under development. The wide range of aromas includes floral and spicy fragrances as well as citrus, woody and earthy notes.

Benzyl benzoate grades from LANXESS are used in various applications from flavors and fragrances, to pharmaceuticals and textiles. Their high molecular weight and nearly odorless nature make them the fixative of choice.

LANXESS offers different quality grades. This makes it possible to select the most suitable option for specific applications. “Regular” grade is appropriate for industrial applications, “Performance” when a standard odor profile is required and “Ultrapure” for applications where an excellent odor profile and a very high purity are desired.

The new Ultrapure grade takes olfactory performance, purity and sustainability to the next level. It is the benzyl benzoate of choice for products like deodorants, candles and as a solvent for fragrances such as artificial musk. This can reduce costs, as it is not necessary to mask the typical sweet balsamic note of benzyl benzoate. The “Ultrapure Scopeblue” variant will be showcased for the first time and is the particularly sustainable version of the Ultrapure grade, based on renewable mass balance feedstock (ISCC PLUS certified) and reduced product carbon footprint.

This year, LANXESS will offer sustainable alternatives based on renewable raw materials and renewable energies for each of its aroma chemicals. Dr. Michael Zobel, Head of the Flavors & Fragrances business unit at LANXESS, says: “With our Scopeblue label and the introduction of ISCC PLUS-certified products based on the mass balance approach, we are responding to the demand for gentle, effective and environmentally friendly fragrances, aroma chemicals and preservatives for the cosmetics and perfumery industry.”

LANXESS uses the Scopeblue label to identify its own products that enable climate-friendly solutions and contribute to the circular economy. They are either based on more than 50 percent sustainable raw materials, or their CO2 footprint is less than half that of conventional products. They are classified according to the mass balance approach and are chemically identical.
