Eurofragance factory in Asia can now produce Halal-certified fragrances

Eurofragance factory in Asia can now produce Halal-certified fragrances

Halal-certified fragrances sales at Middle East and other regions of the world are set to increase as Muslim populations demand Halal products

From the very beginning of its foundation, Eurofragance decided to become an international company. The first area of the planet where it started exporting its fragrances was Middle East and later joined by some other regions and countries in Asia (Singapore, the Philippines, etc). That meant we had to know a bit more about their culture, their tastes and the scents people like.

What is Halal?

Halal is an Arabic word meaning permissible. It refers to everything that adheres to Islamic law, which is defined in the Koran. The opposite to Halal is Haram and refers to what is forbidden. These two words are present in different facets of Muslims lives like food, clothes, laundry products, personal care products or cosmetics, to name few. That is why Halal products must be certified by Halal certification organizations that operate under the Islamic law, under rules and principles that Muslims follow.

Which are the conditions for a product to be Halal-certified?

When talking about fragrances for different products, for them to be Halal certified, they must accomplish six requisites: they can´t contain alcohol; can´t be tested on animals; should not contain animal ingredients; food goods that are prohibited according to the Islamic law should be avoided during the blend of halal cosmetics, and, finally, all Halal products must have a Halal Certification -issued by a certifying body- to guarantee consumers that product doesn’t contain any Haram component.

Why did we decide to produce Halal-certified fragrances?

We operate in different areas with different traditions and beliefs. Our customers produce goods for different countries within the five continents. Many of our customers sell products for Muslim populations so it is critical for us to embrace their culture and understand their needs.

In this regard, Asia, which is a strategic area for Eurofragance, is leading the way in Halal certified products. Hence the importance of obtaining this certification for fragrances we produce at our factory in Asia, located in Singapore. Our aim is to provide Halal certified fragrances not only to Asian regions, but also to Africa and other parts of the world. In fact, sales in these continents are expected to increase as Muslim populations demand Halal products.

Eurofragance fragrances produced in Singapore: Halal-certified

Our factory in Asia can now produce Halal-certified fragrances, which means our production processes and our formulations follow the Islamic law and accomplish the main requisites for our fragrances to be considered as Halal- certified.

Eurofragance goal is to keep working, with passion and creativity, to make our customers´ products those preferred by consumers all around the world.

 

Detergent: more than a laundry product, a fragrance that accompanies us

Detergent: more than a laundry product, a fragrance that accompanies us

How innovation in this field has led to detergent scents which last longer and fulfil consumers expectations

We are surrounded by scents. Even if we don´t pay attention or we don´t realize, we can detect millions of odours. Moreover, scents have an impact on our mood, make us feel different sensations. Hence the importance of our clothes fragrance, the fragrance that comes with us everywhere and every day.

That is why when buying a detergent, as a consumer, we don´t only think about its functional characteristics, which are also important, we decide by smelling the product too. Furthermore, culture and geographic area are two important factors that influence consumers choice of detergent. Depending on what kind of scents we have been used to since we were a child and depending on the weather at our city – temperatures, humidity…-.

So, the variety of detergents in the market is as wide as consumers needs and expectations. Out there we can find detergents in different forms (liquid, powder, tablets) and different fragrances (lavender, jasmine, citric combination, rose, etc).

Wonder how Eurofragance designs and produces fragrances for detergents all around the world? Our perfumers, fragrance evaluators, sensorial marketing teams and technical application experts work together to design the perfect fragrance combination for detergents and laundry products in general.

We innovate and seek the highest quality in our products. A good example of this is Eurocaps, a new fragrance delivery system that gives long-lasting qualities to fragrances applied in different products such as fabric softeners, detergents.

Apart from this innovative system, that guarantees our fragrances high quality and long-lasting properties, we do provide a unique understanding of lifestyles and consumer needs around the world. Our Development teams from our Creative Centers in Asia, Middle East, America and Europe, interpret local trends, research and test scents to ensure we add value to our customers’ brands.

The aim is to create a pleasant scent experience to the consumer, providing outstanding fragrances and ready-to-market concepts to our customers.

Asia, an exciting market for perfumery lovers

Asia, an exciting market for perfumery lovers

Did you know that Asia is one of the best places to buy male grooming products?

Asia has always been an exotic market from a European point of view. Differences between Europe and Asia are multiple; culture, food, weather and traditions are all very unique. This diversity makes Asia a key area for Eurofragance to explore and understand following our vision to be a global leader in perfumery.

Our presence in Asia is not new. Starting in 1996, the company began exporting its products to Hong Kong and Thailand. Next, in 2012, a representative office was set up in Singapore in order to strength the presence of the company in Asia´s East and South-East Asian markets.  Finally, in 2016, a major investment was made in a full service Creative Centre in the downtown Biopolis hub. This year, 2017, will also see the official opening of a new fragrance factory in Singapore (Rapido Production Plant). This facility will be a key part of the company’s global production footprint.

We are enchanted by the diversity of perfumery market in Asia. It is a huge opportunity market not only in home care fragrances, but also fine fragrances, personal care and not to forget men grooming products!

So why do Asian men like grooming products? It all started in Japan and Korea many years ago when men started to get interested in taking better care of their skin and looking younger.  However the category really took off when these products were showcased in Korean dramas/soap operas. As Asia is mad about these shows, the sales exploded and now their popularity is so high that you can find them beyond select retail in supermarkets and chemists!

Our team in Asia does not only work on male grooming products though. We are also very busy on projects in many different segments, designing fragrances for detergents, air-fresheners, soaps, shower gels, fabric softeners, shampoos, baby powder, and hand dish wash, to name just a few.

Asia is probably the most diverse of the planet’s continents. Every Asian country is different, whether you look at food, culture, history, or climate.  This diversity creates a unique challenge for us, but one that is also a huge opportunity, one we are proud of taking up.  There is never a dull moment in Asia!

In some countries olfactive preference is split by ethnicity, in others by climate and food preferences. For example, in China, preferences vary depending on the area: Southern China prefers citrus notes while in North China it’s more about the florals.

So how do we keep up with all this you may be wondering? Well it’s all down to our having an amazing local team whose strong experience gives us the right insights into the tastes of the Asian market. All this backed up by the state of the art facilities we have in the region with our new Creative Centre and the Rapido Production Plant.

Perfumery is an art that requires talent, passion and creativity to touch people. At Eurofragance we are Capturing Sensations all over the world because we love fragrances and we love diversity. Do you?

The underestimated fragrance of our clothes

The underestimated fragrance of our clothes

What the scent of your clothes says about you 

We tend to associate certain smells with people we know. This often happens when smelling a perfume that someone we love used to wear. But, this sometimes occurs to us with the smell of the fabric softener they wear for their clothes. Has this ever happened to you?

Laundry products like fabric softener or detergent are especially important for our own scent, our personal odour. The fragrance of these products makes us feel good, we perceive the freshness of our clothes and we are comfortable with the garments that we wear.  In addition, this fragrance has an effect on the people with whom we interact daily. They can soon associate that particular smell with us. Hence the importance of the fragrance of our clothes.

Actually, when doing grocery, we carefully choose the scent we like most for our laundry products. Some of us prefer a fresh scent while others select a stronger and floral one. However, there are always people who simply continue to try different brands until they feel they have found the right scent.

On the other hand, scented clothing can have more than a positive effect on us. Not only do we feel comfortable with nice smelling clothes, we also feel well-being when opening our closet and smell the appealing fragrance that comes out. Moreover, feeling identified with the essence of our clothes can help us to be more confident in our daily routine: meetings, conferences, speeches, appointments, dates, etc.

Do you want your clothes to smell fabulous? Know all the options that are out there. Decide what scent brings you joy and well-being: lavender, rose, sandalwood, jasmine… And get a heavenly fragrance on your clothes by choosing the right detergent or softener!

At Eurofragance, our aim is to create a pleasant olfactory experience for the consumer. The goal is to provide fragrances that suit different types of consumers and fit the market in which our clients operate.

The development teams of our creative centers in Asia, the Middle East, America and Europe have a unique knowledge of lifestyles and the needs of consumers around the world. They interpret trends, analyze data and test scents that add value to our customers’ brands.

Expertise, creativity, passion and technology are at the heart of our Home Care approach.

Now, it is your turn. Tell us what fragrance you use for your laundry products and why.
