Essential Oil Allergens

Below is the pdf list of 26 allergens found in perfumery materials.  I have included their INCI name, the number assigned to them (CAS – Chemical Abstracts Service), their origin, and then the essential oils where they are found, that I use in my products.  The limits of 0.01% (rinse off products) and 0.001% (leave on products) were set.  I have listed all POTENTIAL occurrences.  (Essential oils that carry a higher quantity of allergens are limited in their usage through the CPSRs that are a legal requirement when selling any cosmetics.  This reduces the risk to the consumers – I include all potentials to reduce that risk further, even if there are none present.)

Cereal Allergens

Oats are the only cereal I use. These are found in the Oatmeal Soap and the Orange Scrub Soap. These are both stored separately from the other soaps.

Nut Allergens (Tree)

Ground almonds are used in the Almond Soap. I use sweet almond oil in all the body scrubs, face scrubs, foot scrubs, the fizzies and in the lip and body balms.
