Odour evaluation of incontinence and FemCare products

Odour in the incontinence (baby and adult diapers) and FemCare sector is an important topic for industrials.

On one hand, inherent product odour before use is a major source of complaints. The identification of odour root cause is thus key to materials (non woven, super absorbent polymer, adhesives…) and finished products manufacturers.

On the other hand, new malodour reduction technologies are integrated to such products and industrial need to support odour claims through robust efficacy data generation.

Sensenet can support you in the odour evaluation of your hygiene products using sensory and molecular methodologies.

This webinar gives an overview of odour evaluation techniques applied to hygiene industry as well as concrete case studies to illustrate Sensenet’s knowhow and expertise in this sector.

How to evaluate packaging materials and avoid off-notes
Packaging provides efficient protection from external contaminations to food products. However, it can also be a source of off-odour or taints. This is a major concern for the food industry as it can dramatically impact product quality and consumer acceptability.

Thanks to its sensory and analytical expertise, Sensenet can help you address those issues.

This webinar gives an overview of major food taints analysis approaches as well as concrete case studies to illustrate Sensenet’s knowhow on topics related to packaging industry.

How to evaluate the performance of cosmetic products.
The assessment of the olfactive perception of a cosmetic product can be is a complex task.

There are different possibilities to measure the performance of a cosmetic product: sensory or analytical odour measurement techniques and also combinations thereof.

It is very important to select the method carefully to provide meaningful answers to the product developers. The odour measurements can be targeted to assess the products shelf-life , to improve the sensory experience of the product or to support and document product claims.

This webinar gives an overview of state of the art sensory and analytical approaches to evaluate cosmetic products performance.

Sensory analysis to support the product development chain
Today more and more companies are aware that the smell of a product can have a significant impact on consumer’s product experience.

Demonstrating a product’s ability to influence the way in which we perceive odours in our everyday lives can also be key in marketing a product’s performance.

Sensenet offer a range of sensory and analysis tools to assists manufacturers, designers and marketing teams of consumer and trade goods to improve the sensory experience all along their product development chain.

Insights into GC-Sniffing analysis, Case studies, and applications.
The smell perceived in a product is the result of the combination of different individual odors in a specific proportion.

We use state-of-the-art analytical methods, combined with trained human assessors to determine the molecular origin of odors and which are the relevant volatile compounds.

Understanding the chemical origin of the characteristic odor of a product or material is key to improving it sensory.

Odour Threshold Value calculation in odorants
Odour Activity Value (OAV) is often used to know the ‘weight’ of perception of an odorant . This is calculated from the abundance of that odorant molecule divided by the odour detection threshold, or Odour Threshold Value (OTV).

The odour detection threshold is understood to be the lowest concentration of a certain odor compound that is perceivable by the human sense of smell.In practical terms this is a very variable value, because human olfactive sensitivity varies over a wide range. This uncertainty has been removed by making OTV’s traceable to an agreed reference stimulus, in the EN13725:2003 European olfactometry standard.
