eau de brouts absolute
Notes :
This absolute is produced in the Grasse region of France. The yield is quite good, but the production is not carried out on a very large scale or possibly many distillers use the extracted absolute in their own business to improve or sophisticate the absolutes or essential oils of orange flowers, etc. Pruning of the bitter orange trees yields a certain amount of brouts which are steam distilled with the leaves to petitgrain oil. The distillation waters yield one type of cau de brouts absolute by extraction with petroleum ether. This absolute is a yellowish to orange yellow or brownish yellow liquid with a strong but not very tenacious odor, musty, dry, faintly floral, more herbaceous and heavy. The typical notes have been described by perfumers as being bread like or broccoli like. The latter term came from an American perfumer who is quite familiar with the Italian vegetable delicacy, broccoli. This material contributes to the naturalness of certain other fragrances.

        IFRA Critical Effect :Phototoxicity
        IFRA fragrance material specification :
         Where the bergapten (5-methoxypsoralen) content of all relevant oils present in a compound has been determined, it is recommended that for applications on areas of skin exposed to sunshine, excluding bath preparations, soaps and other products which are washed off the skin, the total level of bergapten in the consumer products should not exceed 0.0015% (15 ppm). This is equivalent to 0.0075% (75 ppm) in a fragrance compound used at 20% in the consumer product. Where the level of bergapten has not been determined by appropriate methods, the limits specified in the guidelines on individual oils should apply. In those cases, where such oils are used in combination with other phototoxic ingredients, the additive effect has to be taken into consideration and the use levels have to be reduced accordingly. The sum of the concentrations of all phototoxic fragrance ingredients, expressed in % of their recommended maximum level in the consumer product, shall not exceed 100.
        IFRA :View Standard

          4.0000 % in the fragrance concentrate.
