We’re Innosol, Inc. Fragrance & Flavor research & development firm located in Houston, TX that selects only the strongest, longest lasting ingredients. Along with fragrance deformation, we also formulate, manufacture, and encapsulate fragrances. Basically we are your one stop shop.
You may not have heard of us, but I’m willing to bet that you’ve used our fragrances in the past. If you ever put on a hand lotion that lasts for 24 hours, or used high end laundry detergents that can scents your sheets for 7-10 days, or Agarwood/Oud perfumes/colognes, then you’ve used our products.
For nearly 20 years, we’ve created the worlds most unforgettable fragrances and flavors & with over 20,000 formulas under our belt, we know a thing or two!
Deformulation is basically reverse engineering a fragrance, or identifying the components by % and chemical name.
We have over 16 years of experience testing thousands of different kinds of fragrances and products for chemical composition. Innosol, Inc. specializes in product deformulation . Finding and applying the right analytical method to your particular product is challenging and only a few laboratories are equipped to handle these kinds of requests.
Common myth… Chemists can’t get 100% of the formula by testing along, we can likely get a rough outline of the components through testing, then we rely heavily on our chemists and our perfumers expertise to create a formulation close to the original without infringing on others patents.
Why Perform a Fragrance Deformulation?
Quick example: If you pumped bad gas into your vehicle, your car would run bad, you would notice, and you would tell the gas station, and likely not buy gas there anymore.
So why are the fragrances you buy any different. For example, If many of your customers are telling you there’s something wrong, the fragrance is weaker, it smells different, it’s not the same, it doesn’t have the same throw that it used to. Your customers are asking you all of these questions and you have no idea what’s going on. And this is your company. Anything wrong with this picture?
If you buy fragrances for your candle shop, or perfumes, or air fresheners, or any other scented products, and it’s an integral part of your mfg. process, you by default are in the fragrance business. So, Isn’t it a bit odd that you don’t know more about what’s exactly in the fragrances you buy every week, or month. I mean, this is your livelihood.
No worries. We are here to help you fix this. There are a lot of tools you can employ to ensure you are receiving a quality product each time you order. Did you know that you could use a refractive index to check your fragrances for purity and strength?
As a mfg. we check each individual component that comes in using a refractive index, why don’t you? Study after study shows that weaker or imposter fragrances have a lower refractive index than the original.
I read a recent white paper where Refractometry and (GC) shots were used to study the relative compositions of a brand name fragrance along with four knock-offs of the same fragrance. Results indicate that all of the knock-off scents had a significantly lower refractive index than the brand name.
Many white papers now suggest that a higher refractive index predicts a greater number of and/or concentration of fragrance ingredients, resulting in a more complex and longer lasting scent.
Bottom Line – We can help.
With over 20,000 fragrances under our belt, we know we can help. If you are looking for a company to deformulate, formulate a new scent, encapsulate, or manufacture, please contact us
