Description Industrial and Institutional Products
This list of fragrances is for Industrial and Institutional (I&I) products such as janitorial cleaners, room air fresheners, soaps and detergents etc. These fragrances are also used to mask unpleasant odors such as pet urine, mold and smoke damage.
They are generally used at the rate of 0.10% - 2.0% on weight of the product to which they are applied. For example, 1 pound of fragrance oil will lightly scent approximately 1,000 pounds of a janitorial blend. Twenty pounds of oil will give a strong scent to that same product.
Fragrance oils are generally insoluble in water and as such require a nonionic surfactant (such as Triton X-100 or Tergitol NP-9) to enable the oil to be emulsified in a water-based solution. We offer both the straight oil and a fragrance/surfactant mixture (50% surfactant by weight).
Fragrances are sold by weight and are priced by the pound. A 1-quart container is filled with 2 pounds of fragrance. A 1-gallon container generally weighs about 7 to 9 pounds. Five-gallon pails contain approximately 35 to 50 pounds of fragrance oil.
Custom fragrances and fragrance matching are available. Minimum initial order is 35 pounds.
