Manage your raw materials collection

Keep your raw materials organised with a collection of cards to store information. Keep track of basic information such as supplier, IFRA limits and cost per gram. Record purchase dates for stock and making dilutions to act as a reminder to help avoid raw materials going off. A table summarising concentration in formulas serves to quickly remind you which usage levels you found the most success with.

"As a soap maker who recently started dabbling in perfumery, I can say that Formulair has made my transition from soap to creating my own perfumes totally seamless. The way you can create an encyclopedia of all your raw materials, add your own unique blends to other formulas, and calculate dilutions in the snap of a finger… I cannot imagine creating a fragrance without it."

Keep track of formulas

Organise your formulas into custom categories and sketch out new ones with ease. Simply search your raw materials library and set a weight in grams up to 3 decimal places. Mark formula entries as too strong or weak. Change the dilution of a formula entry or swap out a raw material as you please. Formulair makes all of this quick and easy.

"Perfumers say: 'Write down EVERYTHING!' So, I did. Tons of notes. Chaotic! Then I moved to Excel like so many others. Better! But a spreadsheet is neither a database nor a workflow system. I spent as much time keeping track of my growing collection of materials, dealing with calculation errors, trying to make fancy LOOKUP functions etc. as I did, being creative. But then I discovered Formulair. The workflow is so smooth; I can’t even begin to describe it. How the Formulation section is linked to the Raw Materials section is ingenious. No, I’m not related to the producers of Formulair. I am just truly impressed. I am in full control without effort. I don’t think about it – I just create. No clutter, no distractions but any information can be pulled up by a tap of my finger. This is honestly the best exploitation of the iOS architecture, I have seen."
