Styrax Absolute (LOW STYRENE)

Adam Michael has this to say “The aroma of styrax absolute is described as woody-vanilla, leathery, animalic-castoreum, balsamic. In a leathery compound, this product brings a modern animalic and elegant note. Produced by fractionation of styrax absolute in order to respond to applicable regulations. This advanced process results in a material with a very animalic tone. The suggested use in cream is at 0.5%, shampoo at 0.3% and fine fragrance at up to 2%.”
