Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde (HCA)

Kalama® Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde (HCA) is a close relative of Amyl Cinnamic Aldehyde (ACA) and preferred choice of many perfumers who consider HCA to be more floral and less fatty. HCA has the same general floral characteristics as ACA and likewise can be found in numerous soaps, detergents, and cosmetics. Commercial products containing HCA include anti-perspirants, deodorants, detergents, fabric softeners, shampoo, and soaps. Emerald Kalama Chemical is the leading global producer of HCA, with dual production in the U.S. and Europe.
