Sustainability at FREY&LAU

Environmental protection and cost reduction in one! FREY&LAU's incoming goods department has developed a new disposal stream, saving CO² and costs - but how exactly does it work? At FREY&LAU, 17,000 drums and approx. 800 IBCs are produced every year, which have to be disposed of at a cost - and we're not talking about pennies here, but hard euros. From now on, FREY&LAU will use the empty packaging recycling capacities of our long-standing packaging supplier Witt. Since the end of May, the FREY&LAU goods receiving team has switched over the disposal stream, saving not only thousands of euros but also work steps! And by the way, a lot of CO² is also saved! The Witt lorries with the fresh packaging, which arrive at FREY&LAU up to 4 times a week, are immediately loaded with the packaging to be disposed of. This avoids CO²-wasting empty transports and simplifies handling. But FREY&LAU and Witt have not yet reached the end of the (green) road: Witt will soon be able to recycle our main packaging material, PE canisters, too! They are working on the approval of a plant that can shred PE canisters, clean them and process them by extrusion into new & inexpensive packaging materials. Our disposed quantities are enough to produce approx. 850 new IBCs, which corresponds to 18 tonnes less CO²!

An eventful year at FREY&LAU

We would have loved to tell you about our big family event before the Christmas holidays, about the unique atmosphere at the Christmas office party or about the successful agent meeting. Because of Covid-19, however, we had to forego big parties. This was the only way we could contribute to the health protection of our staff. Having to cancel everything was a pity, but we surely will find another reason to see each other as soon as circumstances allow.
Covid-19 has had a major impact on our work over the past year. Therefore, the behaviour of all our staff is all the more impressive. Everyone fully supported and full-heartedly implemented the decisions made by the management. With a lot of dedication and the will to change, we have managed to master the situation and go new - often virtual - ways. The management, Dr. Maja Zippel and Claas Nendel, has thanked all employees for their special commitment and great performance by paying them a bonus.
We would like to sincerely thank all our customers and partners for the good cooperation in this extraordinary year. Especially in these times, we greatly appreciate the trust you place in us.
FREY&LAU wishes you and your family a peaceful festive season, good health and a successful start into 2021.

Fragrance families

The diversity of fragrances: Our fragrance families. Fresh, spicy or fruity: We offer and develop the right fragrance for each product or field of application. Our fragrances lend harmonious notes to cleaning agents, cosmetics and candles. Since the world of fragrances is highly complex, it is divided into individual fragrance families. The following provides an overview of these fragrance families.

Citrus notes


Fragrance compositions based on citrus fruits are bursting with sparkling freshness and purity. Their primary components are citrus oils or citrus scents, which are generally associated with cleanliness. Whether lemon, bergamot, mandarin or grapefruit: these fresh fragrances are an ideal complement to all household and industrial cleaners and are an essential part of the top note of cosmetic fragrances.

Fruity notes


Fragrances with a clear, aromatic fruity note are particularly well-suited for use in shampoos, fabric softeners, cleaners and candles. Our fruity fragrance products feature the distinctive aromas of juicy apples, cherries, bananas or exotic fruits such as mangos and pineapples, evoking the feeling of summer. They can be wonderfully combined with floral, citrus and musk accents.

Floral notes


Fragrances with floral notes are sensual and tempting. The flower essences can form the heart note as well as the base or top note of a fragrance. They can be divided into the fresh-floral, exotic-floral, aldehyde-floral and sweet-floral fragrance families. Floral notes are often used in soaps and cosmetic products. The fragrance oils are composed as rose, lily of the valley or jasmine scents. Multi-floral bouquets are popular too, which we like to supplement with green, fruity, sweet or fresh components.

Woody notes


Elegant fragrance oils which smell like dried or freshly cut wood, bark or roots. The opulent, earthy, warm notes make you think of sandalwood, cedar, patchouli or the scent of the tropical grass vetiver. Woody notes are a perfect complement to strong top notes such as citrus, green or fruity chords. Woody fragrances are applied in many women's and men's perfumes, as well as in shower gels, cleaners and detergents.

Balsamic-sweet notes


A sweet chord with a warm, sensual character is typical for balsamic-sweet fragranes. Vanillin, ethylvanillin, heliotropin and cumarin are important components of this fragrance family, as is maltol. We like to supplement the resultant compositions with floral, fruity, green or woody accents. These fragrances are best suited for cosmetics and candles.

Oriental notes


We develop fragrances with a sensual-spicy character tailored to fit your ideas and wishes. Along with narcotic white blossoms, components such as cloves, cardamom, pepper and coriander are important ingredients. Patchouli, woody-balsamic nuances, vanilla and animalic notes round out the fond. The top note features fresh, citrus accents. The character of sensual woods and resins as well as the opulence and sweetness of the compositions are reminiscent of the Arabian world. The in-trend note of oud, which is popular to use in home care and personal care, shares this same basis.

Floriental notes


Just as in fashion, there are always new trends in fragrances. The floriental fragrance family has become increasingly popular, particularly in recent years. It unites the lightness of floral scents with the opulence and sensuality of oriental fragrance notes. It is distinguished by its sweet-floral fragrance concept, which is combined with slightly spicy and rich oriental accents.

Herbal-leathery notes


This fragrance family is characterized by a fresh, clear and natural note. We produce herbal-leathery fragrances from herbs, such as lavender, rosemary, mugwort and sage. Herbal-leathery compositions are especially popular in men's cosmetics, as well as in household products, washing powders and fabric softeners. They smell especially aromatic and are important components for the fougère family.
