Symrise Launches Purer Grade of Synthetic Bisabolol

December 9, 2005

Dragosantol 100 from Symrise has the highest purity of synthetic Bisabolol available in the market today, according to company executives. At a typical use level of 0.1% of Dragosantol 100, the finished product contains less than 0.001% Farnsenol. Customers can replace their current grade of synthetic Bisabolol with Dragosantol 100 in all of their formulations without altering the efficacy. The stability of current formulations is not expected to be affected by this change.
According to company executives, using Dragosantol 100 will save customers the burden of having to change the labels on their packaging to fulfill the new ES regulation, which states that all Farnesol products packaged later than March 10, 2005, need to indicate Farnesol in the list of ingredients if the content is greater than 0.001% in leave-on products or 0.01% in rinse-off products.
