Consumer Product: Lavender Fragrance Oil Report
As a consumer, you may be wondering what results to expect from our analytical services. Creative Accord analyzes for volatile and semi-volatile components in the samples. Each report has an identification percentage, chromatogram, olfactive profile, and conclusion section. The chart below shows an example analysis of a popular lavender-scented household cleaning product.
Hazardous Compounds Reporting
Creative Accord accepts customized client requests for identifying specific components in samples, such as those necessary for regulatory compliance. Our protocols allow for hazardous compound identification to assist our clients in conforming to mandated regulatory safety standards. Common examples of such compounds are Amber Dioxane, Tagetes minuta, and Tagetes patula.
Tagetes, more commonly known as Marigolds, are well known for providing fruity and herbals notes to essential oils and perfumes. However, accompanying these delightful olfactory hints is a chemical compound called α-Terthienyl. Deemed phototoxic by the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety, α-Terthienyl cannot exceed concentrations of 0.01% in leave-on consumer products.
Should a GC-MS analysis indicate the presence of α-Terthienyl within a sample, we are able to calculate concentrations to ensure that your sample conforms with recommended consumer safety regulations.
Amber Dioxane, or Karanal, lends amber and dry woody notes to essential oils and perfumes, just as the name describes. Unfortunately, while this compound has a pleasant olfactory presence, stereoisomers of this compound have been indicated by the European Chemicals Agency on the Annex XIV of REACH Authorisation List as leading to allergic skin reactions and being very toxic to aquatic life.
