HOW TO USE IT

Skin Care

Excellent to use in performance sports lotions, balms and gels.
 
Very good humectant qualities that enhance the moisturisation of skin.
 
As an astringent, it is ideal in a gel for large pored skin.
 
Hair Care
Soothing in hair care products.
 
Often it can be hard to get good “perfume style” of fragrance in a shampoo that will hold.
 
Citrus notes like grapefruit are particularly hard to keep.
Katrafay blends very well with all citrus notes as well as florals, herbs and spices.
 
It gives good depth to a blend and acts as a fixative to keep the fragrance more stable for longer.

Especially suited for men's products but experience has shown that it is liked by the majority of people.
