Citronellyl acetate is popular for its fresh lemongrass aroma and is often added to cosmetics as a fragrance ingredient to give the product a natural, pleasant citrus or herbal scent, enhancing the user’s sensory experience. It can be used as part of the head fragrance, body fragrance or tail fragrance to increase the layering and persistence of the overall fragrance of cosmetics.
Because its ester structure has certain lipophilicity and hydrophilicity, although this is not its main function, it can help maintain the stability of the cosmetic system to a certain extent and help form a moisturizing film, thereby improving the skin feel.

In complex fragrance formulations, Citronellyl acetate works synergistically with other fragrance compounds to enhance the overall aroma expression while reducing the amount of other potentially irritating raw materials to help optimize the mildness of the product.
