CO2 Cinnamon bark is a natural aroma material for use in perfume and other fragrance products.


CO2 Cinnamon bark has a scent reminiscent of cinnamon. It contains a lot of the substance cinnamic aldehyde, which is the fragrance that is also used in cinnamon candy. Cinnamic aldehyde has a strong odour and can therefore induce an allergic reaction. Therefore, we recommend not to use a lot of this substance, a little is more than delicious!

In perfumes and similar products, CO2 cinnamon bark is first and foremost a top note, which then continues to work in the heart. In the heart and base, the scent is considerably less strong, but can be used to enhance spice and spicy scents. It is an excellent cinnamon note, even in low doses.

Use in soap is not recommended, firstly most aldehydes are not very stable in soap. In addition, it is usually considered too expensive for use in soap.

Aromatherapy: Some aromatherapists use this extract for aromatherapy, so you can do that too. We do not provide detailed advice on aromatherapy, as opinions on this point differ widely.

Store in a cool, dry, dark place in the tightly closed original packaging in a well-ventilated area. DO NOT refrigerate. Keep out of reach of children.

CO2 extracts

CO2 extracts are a relatively new group of natural extracts, which are made as follows: first of all, plant parts are treated with liquefied carbon dioxide under high pressure. Some of the substances dissolve in this liquid carbon dioxide. The solution is then filtered and brought under normal pressure and temperature. The carbon dioxide becomes gaseous and evaporates from the residue, this residue is the CO2 extract. An advantage of CO2 extraction over other extraction methods is that no high temperature is required. A high temperature can be detrimental to the quality, for example due to the decomposition of substances. No water is needed, it can affect certain types of fragrances, such as esters. In addition, CO2 is not a dangerous solvent. If anything remains in the extract, it is no big deal as carbon dioxide is naturally present in the air.
