formulator chemist

What does your role include?

Develop, reformulate and improve products – paying particular attention to how they smell and feel.

Pai products are suitable for sensitive skin. So how do you choose natural scents that work in harmony with tricky skin?

Very careful! When formulating products, sensitive skin is always in the foreground, and of course the scent plays a major role. We will never use a synthetic fragrance in our products – in addition to the related ecological and health factors, they are one of the most common irritants on the market.

We use a small selection of natural fragrances or highly diluted essential oils that are extracted by steam or water distillation. Many people assume that, of course, it is automatically gentle, but unfortunately some oils are very irritating and can cause reactions on sensitive skin.

For this reason, we have to be particularly selective when choosing the natural oils we use.

How can you tailor the fragrance of a product?

Top Secret Information …! To tailor or create a fragrance, you first need to understand what fragrance or "perfume" means. To mix a natural fragrance, you need to mix oils from different categories.

Remember when you try a new perfume – the scent at the beginning of the day, when you spray it on for the first time, is fundamentally different from the scent at the end of the day. This is known as the olfactory pyramid – it defines the structure of a fragrance and the notes we perceive as it develops.

This is an example of the pyramid for a perfume:

 olfactory pyramid "width =" 600 "height =" 508 "/> </p>
<p> Once you understand how a fragrance is created, it's time to start testing! At Pai we use high quality plant substances and raw materials. So it's about working with the natural aroma of these ingredients, rather than trying to cover it up. </p>
<p> I choose essential oils based on their skin benefits and then mix them according to the Olfactive Pyramid, taking into account the type of fragrance we want to achieve. We always use a small amount of perfume (the mixture of essential oils) – always less than 0.5% of the total formula, so skin irritation is not a problem. </p>
<h3> Does your nose get "tired" all day when you test scents ?! </h3>
<p> Yes, definitely. After a while I can't smell anything or everything smells the same. There is only one thing that refreshes your nose – coffee! </p>
<p> Have you ever been to a perfume shop and wondered why bowls of coffee beans are everywhere? They are there to clean your sense of smell. </p>
<p> It all comes down to basic psychophysiology (which is not too basic). If you try fragrance for fragrance, you may experience “nose fatigue”. </p>
<p> Nose fatigue occurs when your nasal receptors become less sensitive to certain notes. Therefore, the smell of coffee between the fragrance tests can actually “clean” your nasal receptors and give you a pristine, smelly taste bud. </p>
<p> Sorry for a cup of coffee! </p>
