para-tolualdehyde

CAS Number: 104-87-0

The statistical data we collected from 6 public perfume formulas suggests that the mean dose for para-tolualdehyde is 0.93%. The typical lower limit is 0.25%, and the usual higher limit is 6.3%. The highest amount of para-tolualdehyde we encountered in any single formula is 6.3%, and the lowest was 0.0050%.
Please note that according to the IFRA Standard Category 4, the level of para-tolualdehyde should not exceed 0.47% of the final product. Assuming that you will be using your formula for an alcoholic perfume at a 10% dilution, this means you should only use para-tolualdehyde at 4.7% or less of the formula.
