Rapid urbanization and a thriving e-commerce industry have increased consumer interest in various premium and new cosmetic products. Aroma chemicals are commonly found in cosmetics and toiletries such as gels, aftershaves, lipsticks, moisturizers, foundations, body and hand washes, body lotions, soaps, shampoos, and other products.

These chemicals are used in these products to create natural scents while maintaining product quality and formulation. As cosmetics have become an integral part of a person's life, major cosmetic manufacturers are introducing new products containing natural ingredients, accelerating their global sales and driving the market growth.

Aroma chemicals are widely used in the production of food and beverage additives, driving market demand

Approximately 95% of synthetic chemicals in fragrances are derived from petroleum-based chemicals such as benzene derivatives, phthalates, aldehydes, and others, which are harmful and toxic to human health. Adults and children are both affected by these chemicals, which cause birth defects, cancer, allergies, asthma, and nervous system disorders. Furthermore, some of these synthetic chemicals are listed as hazardous waste by the EPA.

According to Environmental Working Group (EWG) researchers, approximately 75% of fragrance products contain phthalates, which have been linked to breast cancer, diabetes, sperm count reduction, reproductive malformation, and disrupted hormonal activities. These factors could stifle overall market growth.
