alpha-isomethyl ionone (90% min.)

CAS Number: 127-51-5

The statistical data we collected from 32 public perfume formulas suggests that the mean dose for alpha-isomethyl ionone (90% min.) is 5.0%. The typical lower limit is 1.9%, and the usual higher limit is 7.2%. The highest amount of alpha-isomethyl ionone (90% min.) we encountered in any single formula is 18%, and the lowest was 0.0018%.
Please note that according to the IFRA Standard Category 4, the level of alpha-isomethyl ionone (90% min.) should not exceed 30% 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 alpha-isomethyl ionone (90% min.) at 300% or less of the formula.
