Overview

Alpha-isomethyl ionone is a fragrance ingredient that is supplied as a pale, yellow liquid. The scent it emits is very clean and features notes of violet and orris.

This ingredient can be used in a variety of skincare products, such as lotions, creams, and soaps, and it can also be used as a flavoring agent in lip care products and even some foods and drinks.

Although alpha-isomethyl ionone is manufactured synthetically, it does occur naturally in Brewer’s yeast.
