These complex fragrances are not protected by mechanisms like copyrights or patents. Instead, they are proprietary to the Fragrance Manufacturer that developed the scent, and those “recipes” are closely held similar to those of popular drinks or restaurant foods. KAO is committed to providing as much information about our ingredients as possible. Through closely controlled processes set out by contracts, our Fragrance Suppliers have committed to confirm which fragrance materials are present at 0.01% or higher within our individual products.
Based on this agreement, we are able to share only those materials that are present at 0.01% or higher. Other materials that are present below that level are not able to be disclosed. If you have concerns or questions, please contact us to obtain additional assistance.
