Naturally occurring in the Essential oils are:

  • Limonene, Citral, Geraniol, Linalool, Citronellol, Farnesol

All essential oils naturally contain certain molecular compounds. If used in high doses, some of these compounds have been found to cause allergic reactions. As they are used widely in the perfume industry, the EU/UK requires that these molecular compounds must be included on all labelling.

To help you unravel the mysterious names, here is what is naturally found in the various essential oils in Rosi Skinfood.

  • Neroli oil: Citral, Geraniol, Farnesol, Linalool and Limonene.
  • Tea Tree oil: Isoeugenol and Limonene
  • Helichrysum oil: Geraniol, Linalool and Limonene
  • Lavender oil: Geraniol, Linalool and Limonene
  • Bourbon Geranium oil: Citral, Geraniol, Linaool, Limonene & Citronellol
  • Frankincense oil: Limonene.

I hope this gives some added clarity to cosmetic labelling!
