Analytical Research

At CPL we take particular pride in being at the forefront of research into how effective new and existing fragrances are, and how they work – in the lab and in the real world.

We have some of the most up to date analytical equipment – such as Headspace Analysis/Thermal Desorption – which allows us to precisely monitor what is happening chemically when a fragranced product is used in-situ. This is used to pinpoint particular malodour problems or to see how the fragrance is interacting in use. This technology allows us to optimise the fragrance formulation to get the best possible fragrance performance.

This technology has been used very successfully for the 2009 relaunch of the St Tropez Self tanning range of products.
