Augeo® is a safe diffuser base, with no inhalation or respiratory toxicity, even for long exposure periods. It is classified as low vapor pressure VOC and has a very low odor and adequate evaporation rate guaranteeing fragrance enhancement, and a low carbon footprint. As a high-performance bio-based solvent is nontoxic for humans and the environment, providing efficient cleaning and active solvency power for homecare being globally used in fragrance dilution and air care products. It has features that enable its application as a carrier and/or diluent for fragrances, reinforcing the odor and extending the air freshener's fragrance. It’s also long-lasting, optimizing the sensorial experience of the final consumer. According to TSCA,REACH,IECSC,IFRA,INSQ

Augeo reed diffuser base is a state-of-the-art diffuser base pioneered using innovative technology and is in our opinion the best base on the market today.
The main raw material for its production is glycerin, a by-product from the Biodiesel production, having soya as the main source, which makes its molecular weight 70% renewable, and also results in a carbon footprint up to 40% lower than the glycol ethers it can replace, such as DPG, DPM, and DPMA. Unlike DPM and other diffuser bases.

In addition, if you plan to export your diffusers to the US, base materials can often be problematic; but not this material. Augeo is fully compliant with CARB Regulation in the USA, meaning it is not classed as VOC (vapor pressure below 0.1 mg Hg). This means that Augeo does not contribute to the VOC content of the final product, which was 18% at the time of writing. This allows for high levels of scent loading (15-20%) without breaching CARB regulations.
Augeo works extremely well with synthetic reeds in diffusers but is equally suited to a wide array of home fragrancing products, including room &
Suggested Fragrance to Base Ratio:
To make diffuser oil, blend the fragrance oil with the Augeo until clear. Seal the container and allow it to stand for 2 to 3 days before using.
We suggest starting with 20% Fragrance to 80% Augeo base and adjusting from there depending on desired strength, as always your own testing is required.
