Algae Perfume

Algae-Perfume, algae might not be the first ingredient you think of when it comes to perfume, but algae is actually one of the obscure ingredients perfume makers are turning to for their new fragrances to meet the new standards of EU anti-allergy restrictions that will come into force in early 2015. These regulations will ban widely-used ingredients such as oak-moss since 1-3 % of the EU population could suffer an allergic reaction (dermatitis), hence Brussel is banning two of its core molecules (chloroatranol & atranol). According to Marc-Antoine Corticchiato (Parfum d’Empire) “One solution for oak moss is to add a touch of algae as its wet, iodized smell coupled with other ingredients, can help recreate oak moss’ mouldy character”.
