Skin irritation or sensitivity
It is well known that a very small percentage of the population are allergenic to peanuts, in a similar way a very small percentage of the population are allergic or sensitive to lavender oil.
The European Union has identified 26 contact allergens (components with the potential to cause an allergic skin reaction), which are presently used in the cosmetic industry and are required to have their presence recorded on certain labelling.
Three of these are natural ingredients found in lavender essential oil, Linalool, Limonene and Geraniol, which are the causes of the skin sensitivity in susceptible individuals.
Although NZLavender pure lavender essential oil is particularly low in these three allergens when compared with other lavender essential oils, it still has the potential to cause a skin irritation or sensitivity in a susceptible individual. If a skin irritation or sensitivity does develop, please stop use, wash with cold water and if condition persists seek medical attention.
Low allergen content
The unique NZLavender Lavandula angustifolia 'Avice Hill' cultivar consistently produces oil with low levels of Linalool (between 11 – 17%) compared with other lavender oils from around the world (typically 20 - 45%).
In addition to having the lowest Linalool content of any natural lavender oil, our oil has been carefully distilled and stored at optimum conditions to minimise the oxidisation of Linalool into its more allergenic peroxides (stored at 4°C under argon gas). NZLavender oil is also low in the other listed EU contact allergen Limonene and does not contain any Geraniol .
