Linalool is a chemical found naturally in many essential oils (camphor, peppermint, rose, neroli, mandarin, lemon, lime, lavender and many others) used in cosmetics to endow products with fragrance. It is a sensitiser by nature, which means that it can cause sensitisation and redness of the skin. Therefore, it is included in the list of allergens in perfumes and for that reason, when its proportion exceeds 0.001% in products that linger on the skin and 0.01% in products used to rinse, by law it must be printed on labels.
Given its position on the INCI list, usually in the last places, it is clear that the content of this substance is not quantitatively significant, therefore allergic reactions are very rare.
