### phenyl acetaldehyde

### CAS Number: 122-78-1

##### The statistical data we collected from 43 public perfume formulas suggests that the mean dose for phenyl acetaldehyde is 0.25%. The typical lower limit is 0.10%, and the usual higher limit is 0.60%. The highest amount of phenyl acetaldehyde we encountered in any single formula is 6.0%, and the lowest was 0.0030%.

##### Please note that according to the IFRA Standard Category 4, the level of phenyl acetaldehyde 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 phenyl acetaldehyde at 2.5% or less of the formula.
