Air Care with Appeal
Air care is a highly innovative area within household cleaning which is shown in the consistently high level of product launches relative to the market size (Figure 1 ). Trends predict that consumers will continue to seek new concepts and a more sensory experience from their air care purchases.

The CrystaSense series effectively gels high levels of fragrance oil and satisfies consumer needs with a product that is also visually striking. CrystaSense IM800 transform functional oils into transparent, solid gels with the option of embedding glitter or other articles for further sensory appeal.
Gels made with CrystaSense IM are water-resistant and heat-resistant to 250°C. The gels will not melt in hot vehicles or other areas of high temperature, and are also suitable for aqueous environments within the home and in industrial applications.
Steady Fragrance Release
Figure 2: Fragrance release rates of formulations containing 35% fragrance, 35% Crodamol™ AB, 26% CrystaSense IM and 4% isocynaurate curing agent.
CrystaSense IM800 exhibit steady release of volatile components and are therefore an ideal solution for fragrance formulations. Gels formulated with the CrystaSense IM series provide long-lasting steady fragrance, ensuring that the product smells the same over its lifetime.
The fragrance release of two gels made with the CrystaSense IM series was measured over a 28-day period. The results of the testing show that the fragrance release of the two products is linear and predictable, but will vary depending on the fragrance used.
