Fragrances are complex combinations of natural and/or man-made substances that are added to many consumer products to give them a distinctive smell. Fragrances are used in a wide variety of products to impart a pleasant odor, mask the inherent smell of some ingredients, and enhance the experience of using the product. Fragrances create important benefits that are ubiquitous, tangible, and valued. They solve important functional problems and they satisfy valued emotional needs. Fragrances can communicate complex ideas – creating mood, signalling cleanliness, freshness, or softness, alleviating stress, creating well-being, and triggering allure and attraction. Why is it used in cosmetics and personal care products? Fragrances have been enjoyed for thousands of years and contribute to people’s individuality, self-esteem and personal hygiene.

Bleaching of wood pulp

The main use of wood pulp is to make paper where whiteness (similar to but not exactly the same as "brightness") is an important characteristic.[1] The processes and chemistry described in this article are also applicable to the bleaching of non-wood pulps, such as those made from bamboo or kenaf.
