The company Givaudan announced the release of the line Scentaurus precursor (precursor) of flavors that extend the palette of ingredients that give the perfumers the opportunity to create long lasting fragrances for various applications.
The flavor precursor is a molecule with a weak odor, which under the influence of external trigger (stimulus), such as oxygen, light or water, allocates at least one molecule of aromatic substances. This new technology ensures the longevity of the flavors in several categories like fabric, home and personal care products. The technology also offers a way of countering the addictive, reinforcing the unique top notes during the term of aroma.

Today, 13 years later, the company offers a new family of precursors, adding to the palette Scentaurus Clean, Scentaurus Scentaurus and Juicy Berry. Each ingredient Scentaurus® is the exclusive perfumers Givaudan and provides a high level of versatility.

Scentaurus allows you to create a compact flavors, and is manufactured using the principles of green chemistry.
