Air care

In recent years there has been an explosion in the number of products offered into the air care market, with new and novel delivery systems driving the interest in this sector. The influence of the aromatherapy sector has put much more emphasis on creating the perfect ambience for all occasions. The development of freshener sprays; both aerosol and non-aerosol, along with air freshener gels or liquid wick-type products offer variety to the types of consumer, or industrial products that can provide long-term fragrance distribution.

This wide variety of formats and fragrances on offer to consumers makes it increasingly difficult to formulate innovative products - where do you start? Our range of air care products covers both active ingredients and formulating ingredients, in order to help you to meet the demands of today's dynamic air care market.

Creating the optimum fragrance form and delivery

Key to this product category is the use of active ingredients to add odour neutralisation claims on consumer products. The modern consumer demands effective removal of unwanted odours, rather than using fragrance to mask them.

Key to this sector is the use of surfactants, emulsifiers, solubilisers and gelling agents to ensure fully solubilised fragrances and improve fragrance release over time. We can provide a range of products and formulations to help you create tailored air freshener delivery systems.

Botanicals in air care

Bringing nature to a room doesn’t have to stop at the fragrance. The addition of a botanical extract adds conceptual focus to a product range and often adds a marketing claim on-pack.
