cinnamaldehyde

CAS Number: 104-55-2

The statistical data we collected from 35 public perfume formulas suggests that the mean dose for cinnamaldehyde is 0.25%. The typical lower limit is 0.10%, and the usual higher limit is 0.60%. The highest amount of cinnamaldehyde we encountered in any single formula is 40%, and the lowest was 0.0040%.
Please note that according to the IFRA Standard Category 4, the level of cinnamaldehyde should not exceed 0.25% 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 cinnamaldehyde at 2.5% or less of the formula.
