Fragrance influence on stability for fabric care applications

Introduction Today most of Fabric Care products are liquid dispersions (laundry liquid detergent, liquid fabric softener, laundry gel, etc.) These products are constituted of many ingredients but are known to be kinetically stable. This means that the mixture remains stable through the whole shelf life without any instability signs like phase separation, cloudiness and flocculation etc. The fragrance and/or microcapsules play an important role in the product quality perception by the consumers. However, adding the fragrance into this already complex mixture can easily cause stability problems.
